What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Based in the United States: Government agencies could force IDShield, an Oklahoma-based company, to hand over personal information. That's part of the agreement of the Five Eyes, Nine Eyes, and 14 Eyes alliances, which the U.S. is a member of.
  • Clunky Setup: The user experience wasn’t the best when we signed up for IDShield.

Bottom Line

With plans as low as $14.95 a month, IDShield monitored our identities without breaking the bank. If you want to see how it works yourself, you can try IDShield for free for 30 days.
