Reportech, LLC has a Better Business Bureau rating rating of A- (on a scale of A+ to F), and has been accredited by the Bureau since April 2015.
IdentityProtect offers one of the most comprehensive credit monitoring and identity theft protection packages available. Some of the features and highlights include:
"Search the Dark Web" feature - No, this isn't something from Star Wars - it's literally about searching the dark spots in the web that may contain information about you that you are completely unaware of. When IdentityProtect discovers it, you are alerted. IdentityProtect will also notify you whenever they detect suspicious activity on your accounts.
Password Encryption - Consumers often unknowingly open the door to identity theft by using weak or easy to decipher passwords. IdentityProtect generates a virtually uncrackable password for each of your favorite sites that you list in your IdentityProtect account. And since the passwords are hard to remember, IdentityProtect will enter them for you each time you visit those sites. (Available on Advantage and Ultimate plans.)
$1 Million Loss Protection Guarantee - No system can provide 100% protection against identity theft. But if it should happen when you have an account with IdentityProtect, your loss protection guarantee helps to restore lost funds from your accounts and in restoring your identity. It will also cover reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs for document replacement costs, travel expenses, income loss, stolen handbags, purses or wallets, child elderly care, travel assistance, fraudulent withdrawals and more. (Not available in New York.)
Credit Score Monitoring - The Advantage and Ultimate plans provide Credit Score Tracker from TransUnion, as well as access to your credit score and credit report.
You can sign up for IdentityProtect directly through the website. You provide basic information, including your name and address, and then you create a password. You then provide general information, including your credit or debit card authorization.
