How to Protect Your Child?
We recommend AllClearID to monitor and protect your child’s identity.
Unlike other identity protection services that primarily lease information from the same three large credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax), AllClear ID uses law enforcement databases from the National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance (NCFTA), a group of law enforcement, academic and private security experts. These databases are the spoils of cyber criminal raids. Through a unique partnership with the NCFTA, AllClear ID is able to inform subscribers whenever law enforcement discovers their personal information, said Holland.
