I continue to look at Lifelock..... :-)

Earlier this week, I reviewed a service called "Lifelock" designed to protect one from identity theft. I am going through and doing a more thorough Lifelock review.....I like to understand all that a service has to offer. :-)

I am still combing through the Lifelock blog and reading Lifelock reviews by consumers. The blog is very informative and a good place to keep up on identify theft prevention and reports of occurences.

As I mentioned in my previous post...I am amazed that the CEO of Lifelock is willing to publish his Social Security Number as a testament to the integrity of his product.
Only once has his identity been compromised and Lifelock was able to help get through the situation. Lifelock strikes me as something that will come in handy if you find yourself in an identity theft situation with few resources.....the CEO was given a benefit to cover his lost very promptly! It is amazing to me how long it takes many services to help with a loss....but how quickly a hacker/thief can take everything. I am glad that Lifelock values promptness.

Lifelock guarantees your identity up to a million dollars...something they have never had to pay fully out. Lifelock is America's Number 1 Identity Theft Protection Program!!!

LifeLock helps to:
-Protect your children against identity theft (happens more often than you'd think)
-Place/renew fraud alerts on accounts at the credit bureaus
-Remove name from phone solicitation lists
-Remove name from junk mail lists (such as all those unsolicited credit card offers)
-Replace documents when your purse or wallet is lost/stolen ("WalletLock")
And still my personal favorite:
-Scan the Internet for private info that is not supposed to be on the Internet (ERecon). ERecon would have been useful for me recently when I found that a service had either been compromised or actually given out my personal info (despite having me make up a "UserID" and asking if I wanted details private). Several e-mails later this was rectified but I know that if I had ERecon, I would have known about this sooner. While I may get Recon, I will NEVER do business with the place that was so careless with my personal info again.

I was able to find another Lifelock Promotion Code: "RD32".
RD32 is to make the plan 9/month and includes a 30-day trial. With this discount you can save 21.00/per year. The LifeLock site states that this promotion code can be used over the phone.
