Identity Guard is an identity theft protection company focused on protecting consumers’ personal information and identities. Identity Guard’s founding company began as intersections, Inc. in 1996 and has since become Identity Guard. With more than 20 years of experience, Identity Guard has protected over 47 million customers from identity theft and has resolved over 140 thousand cases of identity fraud.
Identity Guard has also teamed up with artificial intelligence software, IBM Watson, to further expand the company’s solutions to detect threats for consumers. Although Identity Guard is primarily an identity theft protection service, the company also has parental control software available to its users through its mobile app that is available on iOS and Android devices. Parental controls include dark web monitoring as well as social media monitoring. Identity Guard monitors children’s social media accounts and alerts the parent of any suspicious activity that may be related to cyberbullying. You can have access to these parental controls with the most basic Identity Guard package, which is $8.99 per month or $7.50 per month billed annually.
If you’re looking for additional parental control capabilities other than dark web and social media monitoring, we recommend researching other parental control software that has more extensive features.
