This past week has really taken a toll on me. I’ve heard stories about identity left but never thought that I would experience it. My whole sense of security has been lost. I don’t know the extent that the thieves are going to go with the information. So as I posted in the previous post, I signed up for LifeLock Identity Theft Services. It’s a GREAT time to do a review of their services in a series of posts.
First, let me say that I am an affiliate for LifeLock and because of that relationship I had read more about them. I usually do this before I advertise a product on the blog. This relationship in no way influences my review of the product. I tell it like it is with any product that I review. That being said…let’s get on with the opening review of the sign up process.
There are two sign up options —
- LifeLock which cost $10.00 per month before discount and $9.00 per month after discount; and,
- LifeLock Ultimate which cost $25.00 before discount and $22.50 per month after discount.
- You can pay monthly or yearly.
LifeLock is the basic package of services. LifeLock Ultimate is the package that offers everything. I choose this package because I get 30 days Free and 10% off the purchase price but mostly because of the other features. With the Ultimate package, you get the three credit reports and scores. LifeLock also lets you know if any checking or savings accounts are opened with your information. There are more services with the Ultimate but these fit what I was looking for and helped make my decision easier.
When you sign up, they ask the basic information… name, address,social security, telephone, email and payment information. Once you sign up, LifeLock sends you an email with a temporary user name and password. You can change the user name and password once you log into the account for the first time.
I’ve already seen immediate results with LifeLock. They have notified all credit card companies to take me off their “Pre-approved” lists. This has given me some comfort. There have been credit card companies that have actually sent the real credit card already active through the mail to me. This was a GREAT concern because someone else could have got them and started using them.
In the next post, I’ll review setting up some of the other features that LifeLock Ultimate offers. If you think you’d like to sign up for LifeLock and try it for a month free just click the following link and it will automatically put in the code for the discount. Sign up for LifeLock ULTIMATE today and get your first 30 days FREE and save 10% through August 31st
