    I need some help badly. My mother has had her identity compromised and I am trying to help her. It just started over the weekend and she is potentially exposed to significant losses. We are trying to stop the hemorrhaging right now. Many of her accounts have been hacked and as soon as she shuts something down they reactivate it through her magic jack phone which they have taken over. Can you help us.

    I currently have the LifeLock standard plan and want to upgrade to the LifeLock Advantage plan. I could not do it from my account page. How do I upgrade this account?

    1. Avatar Editor says:

      Hi Helen,

      “To upgrade your plan, go to Manage Account and scroll to the Membership & Billing section. Click on ‘Change Plan’ and follow the instructions. You will need to complete this action for each member you want to upgrade.” Otherwise, you will need to contact LifeLock at 1-800-LifeLock (1-800-543-3562). Good luck!
