MyIDCare has been providing identity theft services since 2003

MyIDCare, a subsidiary of ID Experts, has provided top-level identity theft protection since 2003. The Portland, Oregon-based company offers software and services focused on monitoring, protecting, and resolving identity theft to both individuals, families, as well as businesses and government organizations.

MyIDCare provides monitoring solutions that protect its customers against nine types of identity theft (child, medical, social security number, criminal, financial, employment, driver's license, insurance, and synthetic). As part of its promise to protect customers against identity theft, MyIDCare offers a 100 percent recovery/money-back guarantee. The company also provides up to $1 million in reimbursement insurance, unlimited help from a certified expert, a dedicated recovery specialist, credit monitoring, and much more. 

The Good

  • Competitive Pricing
  • Comprehensive Services
  • $1 Million Insurance 
  • Recovery Guarantee

Competitive Pricing

MyIDCare offers a wide range of identity protection services at competitive prices. Customers can opt for a single sign-on individual plan, which is priced at $9.95 per month, or a family plan, which is priced at $19.95 per month. The family plan covers two adults completely (credit monitoring, CyberScan, $1 million in insurance, and access to experts/recovery superheroes are included) and up to five minor dependents can receive coverage as well (CyberScan monitoring, up to $1 million in reimbursements, and recovery services are included).

In comparison to other companies in the identity theft protection industry, MyIDCare has fair pricing for its services. MyIDCare also offers expanded individual and family plans that include credit monitoring and reports from all three credit bureaus, among other innovative features, at $19.95 per month and $39.95 per month, respectively. 

Comprehensive Services

MyIDCare's plans cover a wide range of monitoring services, including credit monitoring (works with credit bureaus to monitor credit reports and credit scores) cyber (dark web) monitoring, public records monitoring, as well as a proactive feature to check for compromised passwords. Both the individual and family plans provide credit monitoring, alerts, CyberScan monitoring, complete recovery assistance, access to an online resource center, customer service help, fraud alerts, and up to $1 million in identity theft insurance.

MyIDCare services monitor nine different types of identity theft, including medical, social security, child, criminal, financial, synthetic, employment, insurance, and driver's license. MyIDCare also provides data breach identity protection and strives to educate customers on credit card monitoring versus MyIDCare monitoring, information about credit freezes, recovery options, etc.

$1 Million Insurance

This identity protection company, like many other companies in the industry, offers up to $1 million in identity theft insurance to customers. According to the company's website, this insurance is designed to "provide reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses related to addressing the restoration of your identity."

It also includes coverage for reimbursement of electronically stolen funds. In addition to insurance, MyIDCare provides customers with access to Recovery Superheroes who are certified identity theft risk management specialists. These specialists will use the limited power of attorney to help customers recover their identity.

Recovery Guarantee

The company has an official refund policy in place for customers who do not obtain 100 percent recovery from MyIDCare's services. According to the MyIDCare website, the company will "refund up to one year of fees" that customers have paid towards MyIDCare restoration services only if the company fails to remove all adverse matters (within one year of the identity theft event) on the customer's record. In order to receive the refund, the customer would have had to follow the proper procedures that MyIDCare provides for reporting the identity theft event and would have already been enrolled in MyIDCare services.

The Bad

  • Does Not Provide 24/7 Service 
  • No Antivirus Software Provided 

Does Not Provide 24/7 Service

MyIDCare's team does not operate on a 24/7 basis. The company's hours are limited to 11 hours per day on a Monday-through-Friday schedule. Although the company does employ certified experts and strives to provide reliable customer service, the lack of a 24/7 operation may limit prompt responses to customer questions and concerns.

No Antivirus Software Provided 

MyIDCare doesn't seem to provide any type of antivirus software or protection against a ransomware attack. Many other identity protection companies offer antivirus software and other protection for customers' personal computers and devices. Unfortunately, since MyIDCare does not provide this type of software, customers must find and purchase the software on their own to ensure further identity protection as well as personal cybersecurity.

The Bottom Line

MyIDCare offers a wide range of monitoring services, recovery and restoration services, and identity protection services including data breach protection and fraud alert services at competitive prices. The company provides certified identity theft risk management specialists (Recovery Superheroes) to help victims make a full recovery from a theft event. MyIDCare has a set 100 percent recovery guarantee for customers who do not fully recover.

The company also offers up to $1 million in identity theft insurance which covers out-of-pocket expenses such as lost wages, legal fees, private investigators (for background investigations), and stolen funds. Unfortunately, MyIDCare does not provide around-the-clock customer services and does not seem to provide any antivirus software that would help protect customers from threats like a ransomware attack. Although this company does have some negative aspects, it is still a top-rated, highly recommended company that offers trustworthy protection services.

Last year my wife and I got married and since then we've worked together to build the most stable life together. Financial stability was very important to both of us. Before joining MyIDCare we recently had an event where our identity had been stolen and someone opened a credit account in our name. Luckily, we caught this on time. We never realized it was THAT easy, so we asked our bank who they recommended to help keep our identity safe. They recommended MyIDCare. Andrew was our representative I spoke with. I had just worked the last 19 hours and I was tired and worried for my wife and I. Not only did Andrew answer and explain everything in detail, but he did it in a way that was simple and easy to understand. By the end of our chat, he had me sold. Andrew explained everything from broad topics such as what MyIDCare was all the way to the minuet details such as how often I get alerts. I signed up and now my wife and I are beginning to feel at ease again. I'm extremely satisfied with my experience and I hope this signs of more to come. Thanks again!

I was very and pleasantly surprised to have the ability to speak to a competent representative in resolving my concern. Not being pushed around from one person to another was a delightful and changing experience. Further, with all due respect, speaking with a person -- in the US -- rather than overseas was also a factor in my deep satisfaction.

Yesterday I thought I might have been hacked and so called MyIDCare. Josh M, an IDCares Specialist, worked patiently with me for over an hour to solve my problem. I am an older woman and not proficient on the computer! Josh was thoughtful, proficient and patient. It took quite a while, but the complex problem was completely solved and I felt supported and not "put down" for my lack of understanding. Josh simply did an excellent job on all counts: solved my difficult problem and left me feeling understood and supported. I cannot praise him enough. Thank you, Josh!

John exceeded my expectations. He stayed on the line with me holding for 45 minutes to find out what the problem was being reported by Bank of America. We finally get someone and their customer service is closed and I have to call back tomorrow for a credit analyst to raise my limits. Seriously? My BofA Visa auto debits from my checking account and they created total chaos and ruined my evening over a case of wine! John helped me and worked with me and I can only give him praise and thanks. Shame on you Bank of America and I’ve been a customer since 1979!

We have only just begun to find the culprit who stole my ID. I was overwhelmed with the damage a person can do. MyIDCare's plan of action to find this perpetrator appears to be a solid, well planned approach (things that I would not have thought of) and I have faith that MyIDCare can undo the damage to me and find this person for which I plan on prosecuting.
