Credit Bureau Fraud Alerts
The best method to prevent others from fraudulently using your identity is to have fraud alerts on your credit report. Fraud alerts are the foundation of all effective identity theft strategies.3 When you have an alert in place, if someone tries to open a credit account in your name or increase the limit on an existing credit account, the creditor must go through an extra verification layer to make certain it is really you who made the credit request. Usually this is done by a phone call to validate you are the one who initiated the request.
Bank Account Security Alerts
Eighty percent of all commercial banks and credit unions in the United States use ChexSystems as a step in the consumer checking or savings account application process.4 When you have a security alert, these banks are advised to verify your identity prior to opening an account.
Stop Pre-Approved Credit and Insurance Offers
Many creditors and insurance companies purchase your information from the credit reporting agencies to solicit you because your credit file indicates that you meet their criteria. The junk mail your receive from these companies contains vast amounts of personally identifying information that ends up in your mailbox or trash. Mail theft and dumpster diving are two primary tactics of identity thieves. Opting out of prescreened offers of credit and insurance reduces insecure personally identifying information and consequently lowers the chances you become a victim of identity theft.
Stop Telemarketing Calls
Identity thieves execute many of their scams via the phone. The National Do Not Call Registry stops covered telemarketers from soliciting you at your registered number. If you receive a call at a registered number from a covered telemarketer, then you know it is a criminal attempting to steal your identity.
Antivirus and Spyware Protections
Our advanced antivirus and spyware protection (powered by Comodo) protects your computer from various harmful threats that frequently lead to identity theft. It is a multi-layered security application that keeps hackers and personal information protected. This includes protection from viruses, Trojans, worms, buffer overflows, zero-day attacks, spyware and hackers. It is designed to provide comprehensive protection against today's diverse range of threats.
Facebook Privacy Scan
Social media is a playground for identity thieves. The privacy scan does not replace responsible behavior; however, it validates that your privacy settings are appropriately set to avoid your personal information from being shared with the wrong people.
Masterlock Password Vault
Most people have the same username and password on multiple sites – identity thieves exploit this fact. The Vault's 256-bit encryption allows you to save multiple usernames and passwords in a safe, convenient and easy-to-access location.
Free Annual Credit Reports
The Fair Credit Reporting Act guarantees you access to your credit report for free from each of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies – Experian, Equifax and TransUnion – every 12 months. Review these credit reports for unauthorized activity and/or to detect identity theft.
Free Annual Checking Account Consumer Report
The Fair Credit Reporting Act guarantees you access to your report for free from ChexSystems every 12 months. Review this report for unauthorized activity and/or to detect identity theft.

Subscription to the Identity Times Monthly Newsletter by the Identity Ambassador Commission
The Identity Ambassador Commission is committed to educating, training and protecting the American populace from identity theft. The Commission is the accrediting organization for the industry's highest designation: Certified Identity Expert. Identity Times is a invaluable monthly newsletter that highlights the most important industry news, prevention techniques, latest scams, data breaches, and Q&A. It is a must read for anybody serious about protecting their identity.
Data Breach Protection
There have been more recorded date breaches than the entire U.S. population.2 This indicates it is likely that your identity has already been stolen, and breached individuals are four times more likely to become victims.6 Not all breaches are created equal, and consequently, your actions are determined by the type of the breach. ID Cuffs specially trained Certified Identity Experts analyze the breach through our proprietary Breach Severity Matrix and provide professional direction based on the specific circumstances. The rate of data breaches is increasing, and ID Cuffs has developed this service to help navigate these uncertain waters.
Victim Restoration Assistant
No person, company or service can 100% guarantee that your identity will not be stolen. You should run away from any service that makes such a guarantee because it is clear they are hiding defects in their protection with misleading guarantees. ID Cuffs prefers prevention, but in the unfortunate circumstance that you become a victim, we designed the Victim Restoration Assistant to restore your identity as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
Child Protection
The rate of child identity theft is 51 times higher than the rate for adults.1 A child's identity is a blank slate, and thieves understand children are not participating members of the identity ecosystem. They are a high value target with little-to-no security. ID Cuffs designed our Family Plan with a discounted rate for the second member of the family, and additional members are free3, which includes children. ID Cuffs strives to protect everyone in your family – even if they don't have teeth yet.
College Student Protection
According to the Federal Trade Commission, college-aged students have the highest rate of identity theft.2 M ID Cuffs designed our Family Plan with a discounted rate for the second member of the family, and additional members are free3, which includes college students (however, they must utilize the home address for enrollment). We strive to protect everyone in your family - even when they are away from home earning a higher education.
All Customer Service Representatives are Certified Identity Experts
A Certified Identity Expert is the highest designation in the industry, and it is administered by the Identity Ambassador Commission. Whether you are seeking advice about a data breach, identity restoration or general identity theft information, you always work with a Certified Identity Expert. This is the most valuable component of the ID Cuffs service, and no other company provides this feature.
ID Cuffs provides you the tools to minimize the likelihood of identity theft victimization and minimize the damages in the unfortunate event that you become a victim. To effectively utilize these tools requires your participation and continuous self-education. As a responsible corporation, ID Cuffs does not claim our service can prevent 100% of the cases of identity theft – this is impossible. Additionally, many of the services offered by ID Cuffs are available to consumers for free without enrollment. ID Cuffs offers a risk free trial. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with our service within the first 7 days, we provide a full refund.
