What We Like
- Identity, Credit, and Investment Monitoring: LifeLock provides extensive monitoring for identity, credit, and financial accounts, including monitoring the dark web, all three credit bureaus, and even investments, such as our 401(k).
- Valuable Insurance: LifeLock’s top-tier protection plan promised to reimburse us for up to $1 million of stolen funds and personal expenses resulting from identity theft.
- Norton Security + VPN: The Norton 360 and LifeLock pairing provided us proactive protection from all sorts of online threats, including malware that are out to steal our digital identities. On top of that, the virtual private network feature courtesy of Norton Secure VPN encrypted our connections and let us browse the internet more anonymously.
What We Don't Like
- Expensive: Once LifeLock’s one-year promotional period expires, prices go up significantly. For example, LifeLock’s most elite individual plan has a one-year promotional price of $23.99 per month but renews at $34.99 per month. The top-level plan for families with kids is $40.99 per month for the first year. It renews for $68.33 per month, a monthly increase of over $25.
- Lower Cost, Less Insurance: Only LifeLock’s most expensive plans cover up to $1 million in losses and personal expenses related to identity theft. The least costly plans only reimburse up to $25,000 in stolen funds. On the bright side, all subscribers are covered for up to $1 million in fees for lawyers and experts.
