The Good

idRadar tells their customers exactly what they are purchasing before they sign up as new customers. New members can even sign up their whole family (spouse, grandparents, children) for an additional $179/year ($15/month).

idRadar’s pricing is very competitive, especially since many identity theft protection companies offer individual plans for a similar price.

idRadar offers unique products to their company such as the Secure Notepad and Disposable Email. These features protect your passwords and keeps your email address secure and spam-free. For $25/month, idRadar members have access to:

  • Black Market Internet surveillance
  • Non-credit loans monitoring
  • Anonymous internet surfing
  • 24/7 personal and credit monitoring with alerts
  • Monitoring of unregulated networks and file-sharing sites
  • Public records surveillance and more

In April 2014, idRadar also introduced new features such as the digital wallet and password manager that have become essential to personal data security.

Customers have stated that their coverage is adequate and that they are pleased with the product and service which they have received from idRadar.

The Bad

For many companies which are no longer in business, there is a sigh of relief. idRadar is one company with few negative features. The company did not have an open file with the Better Business Bureau and was not CISSP certified, which are both tools which BIDTC’s Review Team uses to rate and rank identity theft protection companies.

The Bottom Line

Prior to December 14, 2014, when idRadar stopped operating, their packages were both affordable and comprehensive. BIDTC’s Review Team found that the company was very transparent in their interactions, which is the case, even when they are no longer in business. Such transparency is not always the norm with companies providing identity protection, and idRadar’s fresh approach will be missed.

idRadar offered a quality identity protection service which may have grown to compete with industry leaders. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business and do not offer services at this time.

The Review Team recommends looking for a comprehensive identity protection company offering credit, Social Security Number, medical and financial account monitoring, restoration services and identity theft insurance coverage.

“As of December, 14, 2014, idRadar does not offer identity protection services.”

    As the mother of 3 college age students, I have found this a very helpful service for all 4 of us. We each have an account. After my son had his identity stolen as a youth, we know how hard it is to undo years of identity abuse. I sure wish there had been the sort of early warning that idRADAR offers all those years ago. Getting a notice that someone is establishing new accounts using your identity is truly priceless. When my daughter rented an apartment we were alerted rapidly of a check of her credit report and could confirm that the inquiry was legitimate. We’ve also received change of address alerts when a new address was linked to a file. It’s this sort of early warning system that I think is really amazing and indispensable. I also like the password manager that’s included because I can’t practice good password recommendations without it!

    My experience with idRADAR has been very good and I have been safe for over 2 years now. You don’t have to choose and pick with idradar, because they only offer one plan and they say it’s what you really need. That’s so true! PLUS they introduce new products every year and the new ones are automatically available and at no extra cost for existing members! Love it!

    I’m very happy with idRADAR. I work at an IT department and have seen what can happen to people who are not careful about their information online. I researched about 10 companies and compared what they all offer. It seems idRADAR offer me the most for my money.

    Well, I just signed up for their monthly subscription a couple months ago. The price is right for me and I like their alerts and monthly summary reports. If you use their service, you’ll know they have security in mind for everything. When they send me alerts, they don’t disclose any sensitive information and ask me to login to my account to review details. I know some people might not like it because it is not super convenient (so I’m taking down 1 point for this), but if you sign up for protection service, you should appreciate the efforts they make to keep you secure.

    Being a previous customer of 3 different top identity theft companies in the past, I decided to go with idradar about a year ago and have been very happy with their services and support ever since. Unlike the other identity theft memberships that my husband and I have signed up for in the past, idradar not only helps my family and I stay protected but they also alert me right away whenever any of our personal information is used. This was the major reason I switched to idradar because the other companies that I used for years would sometimes take weeks, a month or sometimes I wouldn’t find out at all until I actually ran my credit report myself. With idradar I can be worry free of the “unknown” because they do exactly what they say they do. I also have been very happy with idradar because being a person who works in the IT/Security/Healthcare industry myself, I know how easy and how quick it takes for someone to steal your identity just through web browsing alone! When I signed up for idradars membership I was thrilled that they offered secure web browsing in my membership – truly a great deal! Thanks idradar!

    I believe this company deserves a higher rating. I switched from a company that had a high rating from the bbb, and that same company took almost a month to alert me. I also enjoy the fact that I can browse websites online anonymously using Idradar’s cool privacy feature. That is included in their price. They may be new, but they obviously have done their homework. Easily a strong 8 if not 9 company.
