The Good

idRADAR tells their customers exactly what they’re getting before they sign up. You can even sign up your whole family (spouse, grandparents, children) for an additional $179/year ($15/month). This is a great offer, especially since most identity theft protection companies offer individual plans for that same price. idRADAR even has 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:

The Bad

Some of the reasons why idRADAR lost Overall Score points is because they don’t have their insurance policy available. Consumers can’t know the exclusion, limitations and other details of their $1 million insurance. Also, this company isn’t accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and does not have a grade. The BBB gives companies a sense of reputation and credibility, and idRADAR is missing that component.

The Bottom Line

idRADAR is a quality identity protection service that can compete with the big dogs of the industry. Their multiple resources of detecting and protecting consumers covers as many holes as possibles that identity thieves can use to steal your identity. $25/month is a little more than the average price in the industry, so you should consider their “Billed Annually” option which comes out to be $20.75 if you were to pay it monthly.

This company offers a major comprehensive plan which can be bought on a monthly or yearly basis. It provides tools which cover all bases when it comes to protecting information and identities. The information on the plan is as follows:

The company covers online basics such as surveillance of black market sales, monitoring of unregulated network and file sharing sites, and surveillance of public records, to make sure information is not stolen or used for malicious intent. Along with that, the company monitors information based on credit scores and personal identification (3-bureau credit monitoring, non-credit loan monitoring, court and SSN monitoring, change or address monitoring, etc).  Then for those who have become a victim of identity theft, the company offers aid in resolving the issues. This includes access to personal victim assistance, $1 million in insurance to cover damages, and much more. Other amenities include anonymous internet surfing, password manager, digital wallet, and disposal of emails which leak personal information.

    A Happy Mom of 2

    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.
