What is iDefend

Oct 22, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Cyberthreats are real, and they can be costly. In 2011, over 174 million personal identity records were exposed or stolen. In the last five years, companies have lost over 26 billion dollars due to phishing and email fraud alone. And as more and more of our information is shared digitally, these numbers have the potential to significantly rise year over year. But you can protect yourself from cybercrime. That’s where iDefend comes in.

What is iDefend

iDefend is the total package when it comes to whole identity monitoring. Through iDefend, you will create a Personal Identity Profile (PIP) that includes your personal, financial and all other information you would like to monitor. With this profile, iDefend can continuously monitor thousands of databases, the dark web and public records to ensure that your information stays safe.

What information can you include in your PIP? That’s quite the list, but for starters, you can include:

  • Social Security Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Driver’s License
  • State ID Card
  • Military ID
  • Passport
  • Checking and Savings Accounts
  • Line of Credit
  • Credit and Debit Cards
  • Medical and Insurance Information

iDefend creates a dashboard which you can access at any time. You can see your current ID Theft Threat Rating, and your most recent scan results. But you don’t have to access your dashboard to know what is going on with your information. You will be alerted by phone or email if any suspicious activity is detected with your information. In the event that your information is compromised, a trained theft recovery specialist will work with you to prevent further loss or damages. This is all part of their unlimited expect tech support. iDefend even provides a cyber support hotline where you can have your questions and concerns about cybersecurity answered.
