IdentityForce Review: Identity Theft Protection
We’re sharing our full experience with this popular ID theft protection service.
What We Like
- Comprehensive monitoring: With monitoring of all three credit bureaus, the web, financial accounts, and more, we felt confident that if someone was using our credentials, IdentityForce would be on it.
- Reasonable pricing: Prices start at just $17.99 per month, but if you signed up for a year, that cost would break down to under $15 per month.
- Two-factor authentication: Since we had to enter a passcode every time we wanted to access the IdentityForce account, that prevented unauthorized access.
What We Don't Like
- Mediocre iOS app: Although it’s not the worst app we’ve ever seen, the IdentityForce app for iPhones was a bit buggy and some features weren’t actually available, like contacting support through their phone number.
- Based in the United States: Like any U.S-based company, IdentityForce is subject to the rules of the international surveillance alliances Five Eyes, Nine Eyes, and 14 Eyes, meaning they could be forced to hand over our data in extreme situations.
Bottom LineNot only did IdentityForce monitor all three credit-reporting bureaus, they also offered monitoring for change of address requests, court records, the dark web, and more. This is some of the most comprehensive coverage on the market!
