Learn why 17 million American households have chosen the same programs as Guard Well.
“Have you ever Googled your own name? You may be shocked at what you find.”
Identity theft cannot be prevented so the most critical component to an identity theft product or service must be it’s identity recovery and resolution process. This is our core belief. If your identity is stolen, you need a complete resolution, there is no other suitable option and no reason to pay for a service that offers anything less
People falsely believe that “financial identity fraud” is the only form of identity theft. It is not. People also believe that “credit or identity monitoring” somehow prevents your identity from being stolen. The facts clearly show that monitoring products alone are not the most effective way to protect your identity. You must also have a full resolution program in place to eliminate and repair identity theft damages when they attack. Additionally, once you are notified that your identity has been stolen…it’s too late. At this point you need a complete resolution program in place anyway.
“Children are five times more likely to be victimized than their parents. Your family is your most treasured asset so we protect them at no additional cost.”
Protecting your entire family is simple and affordable. When you enroll with Guard Well any family member residing in the household receives unlimited, complete resolution coverage as well. That’s correct…we cover the member and their family for no additional charge of any kind, at any point.
Remember, we do not just “assist” or “help” with your identity theft resolution. We step in, take charge and provide the work of resolution for you and your family. We will never ask you to pay for something we feel is not effective or necessary. Members first…everything else second.
“An identity is stolen every 2 seconds…that’s 48,000 American victims each day”
There are currently over 15 billion Internet devices, up from one billion in 2008 (Cisco Visual Networking Index Forecast). Protecting your identity and the identity of your family members has become more difficult while thieves and hacks are more sophisticated, bold and ruthless than any time in the past. As we have transformed our lives into a digital existence, the bad guys have seized the ability to easily steal our personal identifying information. The resale of stolen data exceeds $1 TRILLION annually.
Identity theft increases 13% annually, despite the growing numbers of companies in the industry offering “monitoring” products. If the monitoring products alone were an effective way of protecting your identity then identity theft rates would be decreasing, not increasing.
As more Americans are victimized each year, the identity theft knowledge and experience of every day Americans grows. Consumers are fed up. They understand full resolution is a necessity and are demanding these products. Our core belief is unlimited, complete identity theft resolution for our members and their household. We are ahead of the industry trend and are not looking back.
Our complete resolution program is complimented by a significant proactive protection process for all stages of life. Whether you lose a wallet/purse/identification, fall victim to a phishing scam, have an e-mail/social media account hack, lose a personal device or computer, are active-duty military, are moving, have a death in the family, change marital status, have a child, are traveling, have a break-in or endure a natural disaster, we urge all members to call us today to learn about proactive steps you can take to protect your identity.
