ID Watchdog Review 2021

Our series on identity theft protection apps will evaluate the features, pricing options, competition, and also the overall value of using each app. However, these are not full hands-on reviews since evaluating identity theft protection apps is almost impossible. It would require several months of testing, purposefully hacking accounts to see if the protection app works, handing over personally identifiable information, performing multiple credit checks, and risking exposure of the reviewer’s personally identifiable information.

It won’t take long before you realize that ID Watchdog is a fairly standard, middle-of-the-road theft protection app. It might take a bit longer to realize it is a product of the company Equifax, which announced one of the worst data breaches in recent memory in 2017. Some 145.5 million customer records were exposed including names and social security numbers. That’s a treasure trove for hackers and for selling personal information on the Dark Web, which is the cesspool of criminal activity that Equifax ID Watchdog is trying to protect us against.
