What Sets IDnotify Apart?

One of the most outstanding features of IDnotify’s Identity Theft Protection services is that they are offered by Experian, one of the three credit bureaus. This provides a certainty that the company is able to understand and work with the most intricate aspects of identity protection and fraud. In addition, it adds Experian’s stellar customer service record to IDnotify’s products.

Another stand out aspect of IDnotify is the inclusion of their service with the popular software Turbo Tax. Used to file taxes and monitor financial records, this software is popular among professionals and amateurs alike.

Finally, IDnotify stands out because of their unique blend of Experian’s customer service products and the proprietary technological innovations of CSID’s identity protection platform. This allows them to be on the cutting edge of personal identifying information protection.

About IDnotify

Based in Austin Texas, IDnotify is a part of Experian, one of the three credit bureaus responsible for your credit score. It came about after Experian acquired CSID, a major player in the personal identity protection field, in 2016. This acquisition allowed them to combine their excellent customer service and understanding of the world of credit reporting and scores with the innovative technology of personally identifying information monitoring algorithms and processes.

While both Experian and CSID have A Better Business Bureau ratings, their Twitter feed and Facebook profile are full of complaints from customers. Most of these complaints seem to be about the notifications received and advice given.

Several customers report receiving emails about compromised email addresses with the less than helpful suggestion of changing your password and the password of all accounts associated with that email. The complaints state that these emails come as often as every couple of weeks and that constantly changing the email associated with all accounts is not a cost-effective suggestion or a permanent solution. Check out the full review of IDnotify here.
