Don’t let online security concerns slow you down.

Advanced Surveillance Technology Takes the Worry Out of Online Fraud.

The internet has certainly made our lives easier, but easy access to information means easy access for identity thieves as well. With dozens of accounts and passwords to keep track of, changing security protocols, not to mention hackers, going online can feel like the odds are stacked against you. Keeping your passwords and information safe isn’t enough – if your information is compromised how will you know? CyberScan is a surveillance engine that proactively searches the internet and the dark web - from websites, to blogs, bulletin boards, Internal Relay Chat (“IRC”) channels and beyond, CyberScan seeks out compromised personal information. Over 2.5 million identities have been detected with this continuous web surveillance technology.

If your personal information is detected during the search, you will receive an alert. Additionally, you will also receive a monthly communication letting you know that no unauthorized personal information was detected. CyberScan can detect online selling or trading of the following types of information for MyIDCare members:


  • Social Security number
  • Your name
  • Date of birth
  • Telephone number
  • Driver’s license number
  • Email address
  • Medical ID number1
  • Bank accounts1
  • Credit card numbers1

 

"Almost half of consumers use the same password to access multiple accounts. If an account is compromised, there is a 49% chance that it can be used to gain access on their other accounts."

— Javelin, Identity Theft Survey Report

The Last Line of Defense

Credit monitoring, CyberScan and MyIDCare alerts can make all the difference in catching fraud promptly after it occurs. Unfortunately, not every type of identity theft can be monitored. Did you know there are nine different types of identity theft? Some of these types are less common and are also more difficult to detect.

Regardless of the type of identity theft, our Recovery Superheroes have the experience to restore your identity. They will take on the lengthy process of working with credit bureaus, financial institutions, government agencies and a variety of different entities to try and correct the damage that occurred.

Do you still have questions?

Identity thieves are constantly redefining their methods to find ways to break into personal information and personal accounts. Identity theft is a crime that occurs when your information is used without your consent. Criminals have found ways to use a person’s name, Social Security number, address, date of birth, credit card, medical insurance account, bank account and bank information, driver’s license, and phone number for their own benefit.

If your information is stolen, you might be financially responsible for what the thief buys, charges or does with your information. This can potentially damage your credit rating, result in bill and account collections, or even denial of medical services if your medical insurance is effected. The results of identify theft can range from troublesome to catastrophic.

MyIDCare was built by an experienced team of privacy advocates at ID Experts, the leader in identity theft protection services and response. We employ leading encryption and security technologies to ensure every interaction a member has with MyIDCare is secure. All sensitive and personal information contained in the database is encrypted utilizing the 256 bit AES algorithm.

Credit monitoring is an incredibly helpful tool which works by alerting you to changes with your credit file. These changes can be actions you have taken, but more importantly, these changes could also be fraudulent activity requiring immediate attention. Credit monitoring reviews changes to your credit file such as:

  • New inquiries
  • New accounts opened in your name
  • Late payments
  • Improvements in your report
  • Bankruptcies and other public records
  • New addresses
  • New employers

 

The system will ask you to provide some additional information such as your Social Security number, date of birth, driver’s license, etc. The system uses this information simply as a security step to verify they are communicating with the correct individual and you are who you say you are.
