Your credit can be ruined quickly. Therefore, it is imperative to stay on top of your credit by signing up for credit monitoring. Using our powerful credit monitoring service, you can ensure that your credit files are accurate and protect yourself from fraudulent activity.
The biggest threat to your credit is identity fraud. Identity theft can happen to anyone, and often it’s not just strangers that steal your information. Sometimes family members, caregivers, or close friends steal your personal details. Using your information, they can impersonate you to open new accounts, apply for loans or credit cards, steal money, sign up for services like utilities and new cell phones, and take over your accounts.
Your personal information is the key to your credit file, and once unlocked, your financial security could be at risk. The pieces of information that are most critical to protect are your social security number, driver’s license number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, passport number, and other details. In addition, when protecting your financial health, other things to keep safe are usernames and passwords, credit card numbers, and bank account details.
Our credit monitoring and protection services include credit monitoring, credit reports, and credit scores. Once you sign up, we will monitor your credit file for any changes and send you alerts. The benefits of this service include:
Check your credit reports and scores before applying for a new credit card, mortgage, or loan. That way, you will know precisely what the banks and lenders will see, and you can take steps to correct any errors or address any issues such as late payments.
Identity thieves most often try to open new lines of credit. By keeping a close eye on your own credit report through credit monitoring, you can catch any suspicious activity quickly and protect against fraud and identity theft damage. Credit monitoring is the fastest and easiest way to protect yourself.
If you are the victim of identity theft or fraud, you can use our service to get back on your feet and regain your identity.

Every year on average, identity fraud costs Americans roughly $56 billion. Since just about everyone is online shopping, banking, connecting through social media, and paying bills, no one is immune from identity theft and fraud. Older adults are the most vulnerable to these types of scams, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) received 105,301 complaints in 2021 from Americans over the age of 60 who were victims. The total losses exceeded $966 million. Children and military personnel are also vulnerable targets.
Identity theft is everyone’s problem. Therefore, you must do all you can to protect yourself. The cornerstone of your protection is credit monitoring, but you can also take other steps to enhance your security.
Credit files are monitored consistently 24/7, and alerts are sent out multiple times daily. Alerts are triggered by changes in your credit file or new credit inquiries.
A mistake on your credit history could just be an error by the credit agency or a vendor. However, it could also indicate identity theft or fraud. Contact the vendor right away, alert them, and change the information. You should also contact the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, TransUnion, Experian) and alert them to change their records. Each of the three bureaus offers a free copy of your credit report annually at annualcreditreport.com.
You should contact all three credit bureaus and report it. Consider putting a credit freeze on all your accounts. You may also have to work with vendors to correct inaccuracies and remove accounts that don’t belong to you. IDStrong offers credit restoration services and identity theft resolution. Contact our support team for help. Late payment history can affect other areas of your life, making credit monitoring a must.
Each of the three credit reporting agencies uses slightly different criteria to evaluate FICO credit scores. Your score with one agency may show as higher or lower than another.
Identity theft is when someone uses your personal information and impersonates you to access your accounts, open new lines of credit, or steal from you. It can also be used for account takeovers. For example, if someone gains access to your data, they could take out loans in your name, open a new credit card account and charge a fortune ruining your credit score.
Many factors affect credit score. All your accounts are used to determine your credit score. It could mean that one of the financial institutions did not report anything for one month, and the next month a significant change was reported. When accounts are added or removed, balances rise or drop quickly, it can drastically affect your credit score.
The best credit monitoring service is one that watches out for you by continuously monitoring your credit and alerting you of any changes or new lines of credit opened in your name. IDStrong offers some of the best credit monitoring available!
Credit monitoring keeps a close eye on all your credit reports. It watches for new accounts opened in your name, changes to your personal information, exposure of your credit information online, and changes to your credit score. When any of these things occur, you will receive an alert and can take action to prevent further damage.
