What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Data Insecurity: Equifax, the credit bureau which owns ID Watchdog, has experienced its share of data breaches, leaving us unsure whether we could trust the company with our information or not.
  • Upgrades Required: To get full monitoring, such as monitoring financial accounts, we had to pay for the Premium plan.

Bottom Line

ID Watchdog offers a wide range of services from foundational credit monitoring to advanced features like virtual private networks. This comprehensive approach can help keep you safer online.
