What do you think about life lock? I don't think just a credit freeze does the same. With all the scams out there it seems a cheap way to protect ones self.

If their infomercials are at all correct with their stated stats, (I know they may accent it to sell there product)t but I think it IS more dangerous these days.

What do you think about shredders and keeping your personal information off the internet?

Lifelock? (by plenty [MO]) Posted on: May 17, 2024 6:35 PM

I'm thinking it's a good thing.

Lifelock? (by C&J [CO]) Posted on: May 17, 2024 7:53 PM

I definitely think it's worth it, as well as Home Title Lock....I was a actual victim of home title theft

Lifelock? (by Gene [OH]) Posted on: May 17, 2024 8:37 PM

We don't need Home Title Lock in my county in Ohio. Our county auditor let's you sign up to be notified when a change is made to a property you own. When I had a lawyer re-title one of my properties, I was notified of the change.

I froze my 3 credit bureau accounts since I don't need credit anymore. I can always unfreeze them for a short time if I need to do so. I figure someone wouldn't want to steal my identity if they can't get any credit. I always keep current on any changes or charges to my bank and credit card accounts. I figure this will help make so I don't need something like Lifelock.

C&J please explain what happened when your title was stolen, maybe start a new thread. One of my local counties charges the seller $10 when they sell a house then mails them a letter telling them they sold a house, half the time the seller who i bought it from then calls me to ask what is going on since the letter isnt very clear --74.77.xx.xx

Lifelock? (by zero [IN]) Posted on: May 18, 2024 10:35 AM

My county just started the title change program this year. Signed up but have not sold anything so no clue how accurate they are.

Spouse wants us to freeze our credit but we just haven't done it yet.

Is Lifelock more for the lazy people like me that didn't get around to the freeze? --107.147.xx.xx

Lifelock? (by melinda [MD]) Posted on: May 18, 2024 5:27 PM

Husband wants to sign up for Lifelock.

I dont want to give our financial information out to them

Who knows who has access to this information now or in the future?

does aanyone on this forum have actual experience with the --69.161.xx.xx

Lifelock? (by John... [MI]) Posted on: May 19, 2024 1:13 PM

In my opinion, you're better off just monitoring your credit with something like Credit Karma (for free). And, if you are really paranoid, freezing your credit except for the times when you need it unfrozen.

I don't think LifeLock provides much of value that the above doesn't already do.

The LifeLock CEO put his SSN on TV to show how great their service was. His identity/credit was stolen 13 times (so far). Does it detect it? Sure, but so would have Credit Karma.

The only potential value in LifeLock is them holding your hand to help you along AFTER you get your identity stolen. There are guides online to do it, sure, but LifeLock can be your "insurance" if you are worried about needing help.

But, beyond that, it isn't preventing ID theft nor notifying you of anything that a free service like Credit Karma wouldn't have already done.

Like John said ......

Lifelock? (by Ray-N-Pa [PA]) Posted on: May 19, 2024 8:26 PM

Does this scare me - absolutely.

Do I realize that the insurance company writes a contract that benefits them more than me - yes.

So have I taken the next step - nope

Lifelock? (by Mat.G [MA]) Posted on: May 20, 2024 6:55 AM

Well I saw their infomercial,..its often run on Sun mornings.and I think its worth it. Yeah I DO want someone to hod my hand if things happen. For what they do, I think its cheap enough,..and its deductible.I spend much more for other "insurances" being in business.

Lifelock? (by John... [MI]) Posted on: May 20, 2024 9:27 AM

Like I said, if you consider it insurance for AFTER you've become the victim, then I can see it making sense for some people.

If you want it to help PREVENT you from becoming the victim, then I don't think it makes sense compared to other (free) options.

Lifelock? (by Jules [KY]) Posted on: May 21, 2024 3:24 PM

Several years ago I worked for a company that gave all employees LifeLock after a breach that was caused by the HR Director. It was OK, but I don't recall ever receiving any alerts. Not long before I was no longer with the company I received a strange call from a woman who was receiving a store credit card bill in my name to her address. She gave me a list of names of other people's mail/bills she was also receiving - several were co-workers. I alerted LifeLock as well as my co-workers, but never heard any followup. I feel better contacting the credit bureaus to freeze my credit. --155.190.xx.x

Lifelock? (by Still Learning [NH]) Posted on: May 21, 2024 4:08 PM

We have been compromised so many times my husband signed us up with an Experian program and get alerts all the time about credit, compromised passwords, scrubbing my info from the dark web. Really the most important thing is our credit is locked down. We just got notice this morning from a local realtor where our ski condo is saying there have been a few fraudulent sales recently and the county is going to implement a new program to alert property owners.
