Guard Dog Inc. recently announced the newest addition to their identity theft protection product line in conjunction with a new website upgrade. Guard Dog’s newest product is known as CleanID which provides protection for non-credit related data.
Guard Dog CleanID allows consumers to view the history of their personal information to monitor any unauthorized use of non-credit related data. Up until the introduction of CleanID this type of information was very difficult to monitor. The inception of CleanID bridges a gap between personal information and monitoring your credit according to the Federal Trade Commission since credit monitoring services only account for up to 15 percent of identity theft crime detection.
How CleanID Works
When customers subscribe to Guard Dog CleanID they are provided with a collection of reports that contain history of personal information including social security number usage, address changes, names, aliases, court and criminal records, and sex offender reports along with a one million dollar insurance policy and restoration services in the event of unauthorized use of your personal information. The CleanID service is available for a one-time fee of just under eight dollars and clients begin receiving reports within 24 hours of subscribing to the service.
Credit monitoring services are quite common however monitoring of personal information is not as widely available and is very difficult to locate. Guard Dog predicts that CleanID will open up new opportunities for additional identity theft protection services that provide enhanced protection for consumers.
CleanID Focuses on a Market Gap
Non-credit related information instead of credit information makes up about 85 percent of what identity theft criminals target and yet it is difficult to find an identity theft service that helps protect consumers against theft of this type of information. Criminals opt for theft of non-credit related information because it is much harder to detect than theft of credit and banking information.
CleanID addresses the problem consumers face with the inception of new technologies that broaden the scope of identity theft for criminals and opens up more opportunities for the theft of personal information. By adding CleanID to the arsenal of comprehensive identity theft protection services consumers get enhanced coverage while Guard Dog is placed in a leadership position in the industry.
