IdentitytheftLabs.com is dedicated to providing you with the unbiased information you need to select the identity theft protection plan that is right for you. Many things are involved in this process, including personal experiences of team members who have joined each program, direct contact with the companies, and a lot of research and investigation.
Our current choice and recommendation of Debix is based on all of this combined information. We are not swayed by tabloid style banter as these two companies battle for market share.
However, when the Phoenix New Times posted an article at the end of May about a local company (LifeLock is based in the Phoenix area), we paid attention. The article raised some major concern about LifeLock founder Robert Maynard, but never mentioned Debix. We waited and watched for a response from the company, then on June 12, 2007 we got the answer – Robert J. Maynard resigned from LifeLock.
We feel LifeLock did the right thing by parting ways with Maynard, from a credibility stand point. Though it appears that Maynard will remain engaged in a “consulting” role. LifeLock is still the prominent player in the ID Theft prevention space, but for now, the events of the past few weeks place us squarely in the Debix camp.
