TIMING IS EVERYTHING
Identity Guard® with Watson™ offers robust early detection of potential risks. Get personalized threat alerts with actionable steps to help keep your information private from the earliest stage possible. Good prevention is the best protection.
Traditional identity protection services typically begin to take action at this much later stage, after damage is already done.
Relying only on credit reports for identity protection means not learning of threats until after theft has occurred and been reported.
Threats Occur in Every Life
We live in a technology-driven world that sometimes puts our information at risk. Early detection is essential when your personal information is compromised. One typical timeline of identity theft is below on the right. Using Watson™ cognitive computing, Identity Guard® alerts you to threats earlier in the process than other services, so you’re not the last to know.
Threat Detected & Reported
Data breaches and other vulnerabilities may be reported in any of hundreds of thousands of places daily. With the massive computing power of Watson™ and the Identity Guard® proprietary algorithms, our customers are the most aware of the risks that affect them.
Your Information is Exposed
If you don’t know to take action where possible to re-secure your personal information, it may be accessed.
Identity Theft Occurs
Your information can be gathered by identity thieves and potentially sold to others or distributed.
Changes to Your Accounts
Once your information is stolen, it may be possible for thieves to make changes to your accounts or open new ones.
Activity Reported to Credit Bureaus
Changes to your accounts can take over 30 days to show up on your credit report.
Victim Learns of Theft
Without an alerting service, further delays could make addressing the fraud more difficult.
While we believe prevention is the best form of protection, we also offer comprehensive identity restoration if a theft ever reaches this stage.
From a company that has protected over 47 million consumers, Identity Guard® with Watson™ redefines the standards of privacy protection.
