How to Register:

|3. Once you’re registered, click the “Services” tab and select “Credit Monitoring”|
4. Activate Credit Monitoring by providing the requested information.
This service monitors all three of your credit reports to check for anything suspicious. You will begin receiving email alerts on your credit every time something happens, such as a new trade line, inquiry or change of address. If someone steals your identity, you’ll know about it right away! If you get an alert, you’ll automatically get to pull a new credit report and score. You’ll also receive a “no news is good news” email every month if there are no issues.
5. To activate Total Identity Monitoring2, go back to the services tab at the top and select "Total Identity Monitoring." Complete the requested information.
This will start monitoring your identity in non-credit based areas, including Social Security, medical fraud and public records. Once registered, you’ll be given a green, yellow, or red light—this is based on your ID theft risk. If you have a yellow or red light, don’t panic, just call the resolution services number.
6. To register your credit, debit and/or department store cards, select “Card Registration” under the “Services” tab. Complete the requested information.
If your wallet is ever lost or stolen, you’ll call IDProtect and they will call and cancel all of your cards for you!
