THE GOOD

Try it for free:

If you're not sure if Identity Force is the right company for you, take advantage of their 14-day free trial. That way, you're able to experience the service as if you're an actual user before committing to a paid membership. Not all identity theft protection services offer a free trial, which makes Identity Force's trial option worthy of note. Two weeks isn't very long, but it's enough to give you a sense of whether or not Identity Force is the right company for you.

Delete personal data online:

Identity Force provides you with a report of all your personal information that's been made public and appears on the Internet. If you find the information is incorrect or poses a threat to the safety of your identity, Identity Force helps you remove it. You may be exposing more of your personal information on the Internet than you realize, but Identity Force helps you minimize this, making it more difficult for identity thieves to get hold of your information and use it to make unauthorized purchases. This isn't something that most other ID protection services offer, and it can be very useful to have.

Online protection software:

In addition to monitoring your personal information and credit reports, Identity Force provides you with anti-keylogging software to protect you against malware that might otherwise steal your personal information. Anti-phishing software is included as well, which helps you detect and avoid phishing sites, websites set up to look like a real company's website in order to hoodwink you into entering personal information. Although these products are not a core component of an identity theft protection service, you can appreciate Identity Force being proactive and providing these tools to help prevent their customers from becoming victims of identity theft in the first place.

Solutions designed for businesses:

Identity Force offers RapidResponse data breach solutions to assist businesses that have had confidential information stolen by identity thieves. Data breach situations are dangerous not only for businesses, but also for their clients; so, it's important to make sure these situations are handled as quickly and efficiently as possible. With this service, Identity Force will notify you of any changes to credit files and offers your customers identity and credit monitoring services to ensure their information is not being used by an identity thief. Another service Identity Force offers to business owners is the opportunity to add identity theft protection as an employee benefit. By providing employees with ID protection, you not only keep their personal information safe but also ensure their productivity doesn't suffer as a result of identity fraud.

THE BAD

Credit monitoring costs extra:

Identity Force offers two different identity theft protection plans, but only the more expensive of the two, the UltraSecure + Credit plan, includes credit monitoring. The fraudulent use of credit cards is one of the most common types of identity theft, so if you want a credit monitoring solution, you have two choices: either pay for the UltraSecure + Credit plan, or shop around for a more affordable identity theft protection service that includes credit monitoring. In this case, a company like ID Patrol might be a better fit.
