LifeLock launched its new service, LifeLock Command Center, in January of 2010 to help protect individuals and families from other types of identity theft beyond credit while at the same time adding enhanced credit protection. While financial identity theft will always be the biggest concern for Americans it only comprises less than a third of all complaints to the Federal Trade Commission. LifeLock’s Command Center extends the comprehensiveness of its original service, at an increased fee, to help protect consumers from other types of identity theft such as criminal.
Lets take a look at these added services and the safety it provides you.
Payday Loan Alerts and Reports
Notifies you of any payday loan activity with your name, date of birth and Social Security number.
Court Records Alerts and Reports
Lists court records that match your name and date of birth from county courts, Departments of Corrections (DOC), offices of Administration of Courts (AOC) and other legal agencies to help you verify that criminals aren’t using your name to commit crimes.
Public Records Alerts and Reports
Lists postal addresses associated with your identity found in public records.
Alias Records Alerts and Reports
Lists alternate names associated with other pieces of your identity (Social Security number, driver’s license, etc.) found in public records.
LifeLock Personal Breach Detection™ Services
Actively monitors unregulated internet and file-sharing networks for your identity information. If we find you are at risk, we’ll alert you by e-mail and help protect you against accidental personal information disclosures.
Sex Offender Registry Alerts and Reports
Lists registered sex offender records for your zip code. It will also alert you if a sex offender is fraudulently using your address.
As you can see it is quite comprehensive and is an additional service to their basic service (see our LifeLock review). In fact, there is no other identity theft protection service offering this level of protection. Of particular interest to us is the criminal identity theft protection, the enhanced credit protection with Payday Loan Monitoring and the Alias Record Alerts which will notify you if someone else is using your Social Security number or other identification.
If you feel the extra $49.50 per year is worth the added level of protection that LifeLock Command Center provides you can sign up here. It an extra level of protection that may very well be worth the extra peace of mind.
