Kroll’s unique combination of identity monitoring services can detect more types of identity theft than credit monitoring alone, providing practical help to combat identity theft and fraud.
Did you know that very few cases of identity theft—as few as two in 10—can be detected on a credit report?
Because credit monitoring is not a useful tool when certain types of data are compromised, an organization may choose to offer identity monitoring to provide consumers with insight into many different aspects of a consumer’s identity that can reveal known triggers of identity theft that credit monitoring alone would not.
Identity monitoring provides data associated with an individual’s non-credit-based personally identifiable information (PII), and reports information that is not tracked by credit bureaus. This type of monitoring can look for information in public records, or it may be searching for instances of PII found on the Internet, particularly sites known for illegal sales of PII.
Kroll’s identity monitoring services provide web-based monitoring of PII including:
- Social Security Number/National ID Number
- Bank Account Number
- Bank Routing Number
- Credit/Debit Cards
- Medical ID Numbers
- Email Address
- Phone Number
