My wife and I have used the LegalShield / IDShield service, both in-state and in other states with their network of provider law firms. We have been very happy and satisfied with the service every time.

They have since 1972 restored the Identity fully without charging any more money. They back it with a five million dollar guarantee. They use Kroll to do the work. And they are the best of the best! I will use no other.

I'm comfortable with the I D Shield monitoring. Customer service is thorough and responsive when called and very helpful. The discount given when attached to the legal plan makes the family protection very affordable and comprehensive. Both plans are less than $1 a day to protect the family.

Legal Shield is one of few companies that offer full restoration benefits. It is not an indemnity plan that requires you to pay for services, and then file for reimbursement.

I appreciate the ability to ask questions, often, and the person on the other end makes me feel as though they really like the fact that I called and are eager to help. When I hear about a breach, I don't worry. I've got the best.

Great services. When bank of america, LA fitness tried to take advantage legal shield stepped in and submitted letters on my behalf. On those 2 occasions I saved roughly $160. That's 5 months worth of membership.

Legal Shield is good if there are participating providers in your area. But here in Central PA there are none. I was assigned an non participating attorney and he wasn't very good. When I called Legal Shield to ask if he was a participating attorney or an outside attorney, I was told he was participating. I found out later he wasn't. I don't even know if I got an discount on his services because he wouldn't provide his regular fees of tell me what sort of discount I received. When I called Legal Shield they told me they couldn't give me any of that information. I'm thinking about canceling my membership because I don't think it does me any good in this area,

LegalShield's identity theft protection offers protection for the whole family for one low price. They are the only one to offer comprehensive restoration services by Kroll. Life Lock requires YOU to do all the leg work.

Fooled Friend Livonia, MI

I have been making automatic monthly payments via a credit card to Legal Shield since November 2016 and to my amazement recently got an email requesting that I ACTIVATE my account. Curiously, I noticed that during the coronavirus quarantine, when no purchases were made on the credit card account except for groceries, the normal monthly payment to Legal Shield and 2 days later an airline ticket to Florida! I notified my card company that I had not left the house for weeks except to get groceries! They closed the card immediately but I find it curious that the emails about my account with Legal Shield came around the time that the ticket purchase fraud was made on the same account that they used to obtain their monthly payment, I believe the ID monitoring has been a scam and I have lost nearly $500 on a company that had no intentions of protecting my identity. I am wondering how that person used the ticket that they purchased in my name because they would have had to produce an ID at the airport in order to board the plane and they were able to use that information from my registration with Legal Shield. ID MONITORING IS A SCAM WITH THIS COMPANY!!!

Neither LifeLock, ID Shield nor any other listed providers are secure or compliant, as they have to be certified by the IISC, the only international security certification, standards, security law/enforcement agency world-wide. Neither LifeLock, ID Shield nor any other listed providers websites are secure or compliant as you would find that evidence on the websites as legally required. To be certified, there must be a thorough inspection of all webpages, all client contracts, all technologies. All refuse inspection, based on proprietary technologies. Neither impose nor deliver the 1994 mandated security required by the IISC for securing a windows computer, device, machine.

Always adding more features without increasing cost. Licensed private investigators restore identity with POA. Feel this is best protection available.

There are major flaws in their data system that they refuse to recognize. They may have been hacked or compromised. Beware! Here's what I wrote to them before I cancelled my membership. "I opened my account about a week and a half ago. I entered information, including 10 credit card numbers and one bank account number, that evening. I checked back again a few days later and found no bank account number and only 6 credit cards. The next time I tried to access the account it blocked my login completely. Tonight, the same login (memorized by Chrome) worked, but I found only one credit card number there. There is something very wrong with your system. Please have a representative call me and detail how you are going to investigate." Instead of calling me, they insisted that I call them. Their agent at Kroll Investigators told me that there was no problem--that I had only entered one credit card. I told him that I was there and he had no basis for his lie. Rather than forwarding me to the person I needed to speak to to cancel my membership, he hung up. Do not join this incompetent service.

Do not trust this integrity lacking company! They make you sign up using your bank routing numbers and when I thought they had cancelled my services as they told me over the phone they continued to charge me for two years. They changed the names of the account pulling the money out which changed the tracking of how it was being taken out. I spent over an hour an a half on the phone with multiple representatives who said they would refund $29.90 of the $600+ dollars they took from me. I figured a company this big would not be okay taking over 600 dollars from a member who had cancelled two years ago but they all seemed fine to hold onto my money and tell me to have a nice day. Then again who would expect to trust a bunch of laywers?

Legal Shield is nothing more than a minimal legal consultation service. Although the will and other general items are good,but if you are looking for real legal insurance, this IS NOT for you. From my experience, the only service provided is "consultation" and minimal at that. The attorney I talked to wanted to get off the phone as soon as possible and wanted to spend the least amount of time possible discussing my issue. He proposed to do nothing but referred me to a government agency or a local attorney where I would have to put up a $5000+ retainer for services. Again, only service provided was consultation. Please understand, this is not legal insurance.In my opinion, it is only consultation insurance.

Angry customer Locust Fork, AL

The monthly membership was very affordable. When I changed jobs and cancelled the service but was still being charged it was rectified sufficiently. Once I decided to join at my new job it was easy to sign up again. As long as I didn't need the service everything was good. Once I tried to use it after having a membership for collectively two years I could get no help. There was only one lawyer in my area that dealt with my particular issue - which to me was a pretty straightforward situation. I simply wanted to legally change my daughter's name. I called multiple times over the span of a month and never got even a call back from this lawyer. I ended up going to court alone and filing the documents myself with only minor corrections needed - AND THE JUDGE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO DO THAT. I called Legal Shield to complain about the situation and was told it was nothing they could do. How about a refund from the time I tried to contact the lawyer to the present?? Also, they would not cancel my subscription saying I was locked in for a year. They didn't offer any solutions, alternatives - NOTHING. I was livid. The lawyer's unresponsiveness they can't control but they could have handled their end better. I will never patronize this business again. They have terrible policies and customer service.

Complete trash service. Provided all the documents they requested for a collections letter (sublease contract, invoices, statements), lawyer can't even spend the time to figure out how to arrive at the amount owed, claiming "I'm not an accountant". The charges are actually itemized in the statement and we even provided individual invoices to backup the statement. Subsequently told us our sublessee is not responsible for utilities, completely missing a whole paragraph in the sublease contract which clearly states the sublessee is responsible for utilities, maintenance and repairs. Their lawyers apparently aren't required to pass elementary mathematics nor have the ability to read.

Fortunately, I have not had to call upon this service. However, it has given me peace of mind to know I can call if needed to protect my identity. An email update each month provides me with a summary of any transactions.

I signed up for ID Shield and 5 days later I still haven't got an email saying I was a member. My identify got stolen 5 days ago and the email I received from ID Shield said my application was going to be processed in 1 business day. False advertisement and no service. I am on the phone right now and I am already on my 3rd customer service rep because the other two couldn't help me. This is wrong.

Once you learn how to use the service, it flipping' rocks. Ask enough questions and ask the attorneys how they would use it themselves.
