How does Allstate Identity Protection compare with other services, like credit monitoring?
While our service includes credit monitoring, we know that credit is just one aspect of identity protection. We detect a more expansive range of digital threats beyond your credit accounts. Our identity monitoring looks for misuse not only of credit, but also of high-risk transactions (suspicious non-credit activity such as “payday” loans or forged signatures on documents) and compromised credentials on the dark web. This includes your financial and social media accounts.
Additionally, Allstate Identity Protection monitors the accounts you add, even from multiple financial institutions, in one place instead of relying on each bank’s individual fraud monitoring system. You can even place thresholds for financial activity on all of your existing bank accounts, giving you greater insight into potentially fraudulent activity. If you’d like more details on financial threshold monitoring, you can contact us here.
