No Identity Theft is a free website offering consumers information about identity theft and how to avoid it. This site also offers reviews and comparisons to help consumers find the best identity theft protection available.
Identity theft is a growing danger, which affects as many as one in four adults. DIY identity theft protection has become increasingly difficult because criminals continue to stay one step ahead of law enforcement by developing sophisticated tools for easy access to a person’s identity.
A 2016 Fraud Study by Javelin Strategy & Research shows that criminals using identity theft stole approximately $15 billion from 13.1 million consumers in the U.S. in 2015. Now that credit cards are equipped with a microchip, making them more difficult to counterfeit, the criminals are starting to focus on new account fraud. This occurs when the criminal opens a new credit card or other account by using the victim’s name and any other information that is in the criminal’s possession.
Identity theft can lead to serious problems for the consumer. It can ruin their credit for several years, making it difficult for them to obtain new loans or credit cards. The process to regain one’s identity is a painstaking process and can involve expensive legal costs.
No Identity Theft allows the consumer to choose the protection company that is the best fit for them.
No Identity Theft researches and analyzes id theft protection companies using a fifty-point review and comparison scale to determine the best and worst coverage. Some of the rating scale points include:

There are a number of identity theft protection companies from which the consumer can choose. Two highly rated companies reviewed by No Identity Theft are LifeLock and Identity Guard.
As of September 2, 2016, Identity Guard had the highest rating among the companies reviewed by No Identity Theft. Coming in at a very close second was ID theft protection pioneer LifeLock. Both of these companies have fees that are approximately the same and both have some similar protections. Some of these include:

It is important to note that every identity protection plan is different. That is the reason it is important to read all the reviews on the No Identity Theft website. Because each plan is unique, the consumer should know what they want to protect in order to choose the best plan for their needs.
