Why ID Watchdog?

ID Watchdog was formed in 2005 by a group of credit professionals who saw the need for an ID Theft product to help protect consumers against the growing number of thieves seeking to commit fraud.

In addition to credit monitoring and reporting, ID Watchdog also monitors the dark web for social security numbers and financial information.

ID Watchdog provides 24/7 monitoring and claims support, providing live, real-time access to customers whenever they need it. Customers can be at ease knowing their critical information is protected by a team of Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialists (CITRMS). When information has been stolen or an error is detected, this team works hard to restore the identity quickly and efficiently. Offering $1 million in reimbursement for expenses, time and other losses related to identity theft, ID Watchdog guarantees payment in the case that theft occurred while using their services. This, in turn, prevents theft from becoming a long-term detriment. Moreover, ID Watchdog does offer support and identity recovery services for people not already enrolled in their Plus or Premium plan. This shows the company’s dedication to reducing instances of fraud and serving justice and peace of mind to everyone.
