In over a decade of researching and writing about home security, we’ve learned the perfect security system for one person could be completely wrong for someone else.
That’s why our home security reviews dig into what each company is best at. With that info you can find a system that’s tailored to your needs, whether you want cheap monthly monitoring, the latest home automation gear, or a system with no contract.
Identity Guard is on the pricier side, but it has decent identity fraud protection. All plans offer Social Security number and dark web monitoring, access to your risk management score, and up to $1 million in reimbursement with identity theft insurance.
In addition to monitoring your personal and financial information for signs of identity theft, IDShield gives customers 24/7 access to private investigators to help out if identity theft does occur. This perk makes IDShield a good option if your information has been breached and you need personalized help getting back on track. The Individual and Family packages come with the same features, including mobile app access and a password manager. However, IDShield monitors only one of the three major credit bureaus, which keeps us from recommending it unconditionally.
