What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Cheapest plan doesn’t include credit monitoring: If you’re looking for comprehensive identity theft protection, the cheapest plan isn’t a good choice due to its lack of credit monitoring. Credit monitoring is available starting with the $16.67 per month Total plan.
  • Unimpressive app: While it’s easy to use, Identity Guard’s app isn’t as comprehensive as we had hoped.
  • Limited proactive protection:: Although all plans include a Safe Browsing feature and password manager, Identity Guard has yet to offer a VPN, which is becoming an increasingly common feature included with identity theft protection services.

Bottom Line

Credit monitoring, financial monitoring, dark web scanning, and criminal monitoring are just some of the features that Identity Guard covers. Starting at just $7.50 per month, you really can't find a more affordable service than Identity Guard, especially one that uses artificial intelligence to improve its monitoring.
