Only TrustedID offers you your Identity Threat Score 1 – a personal measure of your potential risk for identity theft. This score gives you an easy-to-understand way to gauge one aspect of your risk, as well as helps ensure that you remain aware and in better control of your personal information use.
Our Identity Monitoring 2 directly determines your Identity Threat Score. When you scan for your personal information, you’ll discover what information is publicly available about you. Your score will be based on these monitoring results.
How we determine your score...
- Your personalized Identity Threat Score gauges your potential risk (low, moderate, or high) for identity theft by taking into consideration the type, amount and source of your publicly available personal information online.
- We search through millions of records to locate specific combinations of your personal information that piece together your identity. Once we’ve gathered the data from these sources, we analyze patterns and occurrences of specific combinations of your information that could indicate a higher risk of identity thieves piecing together your information and using your identity for their own gain.
- If we find information indicating your identity is at risk, we’ll share the frequency and source, and we’ll recommend a set of actions for you to take to help keep your identity protected.
1 The Identity Threat Score gauges one aspect of risk (low, moderate or high) for identity theft by taking into consideration what personal information is publicly available, where it was found, and the quantity of personal information found. TrustedID examines online sources to locate what personal information is publicly available and how that information can be used to create specific combinations of personal information that can be used to piece together an identity. Our analysis is only an indication that you may be at a higher risk of identity thieves piecing your information together and using your identity for their own gain. If we find information indicating your identity may be at risk, we'll share the frequency and source, and we'll recommend a minimum set of actions that you should consider taking to help keep your identity safe.
