IdentityIQ Launches First Free Consumer Credit Bureau Monitoring Service

Company Also Offers Variety of Identity Management Services; Free Monitoring Offer Acknowledges Pinch Consumers Feeling From Economy and ID Theft

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) - IdentityIQ, the first full-service identity management firm to offer free credit monitoring direct to the public, announced today that it launched its identity management services nationwide and as part of its national debut will provide Americans access to its free daily credit bureau monitoring product. Considered the first free service of its kind, IdentityIQ's free plan allows consumers to be notified of irregularities, attacks and updates to their credit file. The free service is part of IdentityIQ's commitment to be an invaluable aid to every consumer who was affected by the downturn in the economy and is under threat by identity thieves.

As part of its national launch, IdentityIQ will also offer a variety of tailored service packages that will allow each customer to determine the level of protection they want to place on their identity and oversight they want on their credit file. In addition to its free services, basic packages will start at $4.99/month and increase to $29.99/month based on the combination of credit monitoring and Id theft protection services. According to CreditCards.com, there are over 430 million Mastercard and Visa credit cards being used by Americans. Each card can expose a person to identity theft should a thief gain access to it and/or the information contained on it.

"Millions of Americans have been affected by the downturn in the economy and the continued threats posed by identity theft are reasons why IdentityIQ felt compelled to offer a free monitoring tool for use by the public," said Allen Bourne, Vice President of Marketing for IdentityIQ. "Credit monitoring is the only automated way to keep a constant eye on your credit so you can be made aware of any changes that could signal identity theft right away. We're pleased to offer it at a price point to fit any budget -- free."
