Identity Guard® vs ID Watchdog

ID Watchdog and Identity Guard® Total Protection® are a step above the average identity protection services.

The thing that makes them stand out from other protection plans is the thorough scanning of 1000’s of databases watching for misuse of your personal records and information.

Credit identity theft is only one way identity thieves can attack you. They can lease apartments, open accounts with utilities, get a driver’s license, get medical treatment and even commit a crime – all while pretending to be you.

Having a protection plan with intensive scanning becomes a critical factor in catching identity theft early. Be aware that there is nothing that can 100% protect you from having your identity stolen.

Identity thieves are smart and getting smarter every day. Security and data breaches are almost an every day occurrence so there’s always the chance your info can fall into the wrong hands because of sloppy security by corporations, government agencies, schools, banks, etc.

If your identity is being used by a thief, finding it early limits the damage. That’s why the thorough scanning is so important.

Aside from the scanning services, Identity Guard and ID Watchdog have some differences. It’s up to you to decide which services are more important to you because both plans are very good.
