LifeLock Junior

Protect your child's identityLifeLock® Junior™ is the newest membership plan designed especially to protect a child from identity theft.  Child identity theft is one of the easier crimes thieves can commit. Any child is vulnerable in this world full of data breaches.

Every child in the US gets a social security number before turning a year old. When a thief gets the information, a child is especially at risk because they will use it more frequently than an adult’s. After all, what’s more perfect than a credit file that no one ever thinks to check?

The pristine credit file of a minor is a true gold mine for an id thief. According to former LifeLock CEO, Todd Davis, “This type of activity can go undetected for years and have disastrous effects once uncovered.” Wireless phone accounts and credit cards are common forms of misuse.

Warning signs of identity theft are receiving a notice of unpaid income taxes or getting collection calls or bills for products or services you didn’t receive or apply for.

With a child’s identity information, a thief can:

  • Take out loans
  • Apply for credit cards
  • Turn on utilities
  • Rent a house or apartment
  • Get a job
  • Get a payday loan
  • Buy a house, a car, boat, motor home
  • Get a wireless phone plan

It’s not normal for parents to check on a child’s credit information because we know our child hasn’t LifeLock Juniorapplied for anything from the list above! But the moment a baby gets a social security number, they instantly become vulnerable.

For this reason, LifeLock created a Junior plan to protect your kids from identity theft.

Why Trust LifeLock?

LifeLock has been protecting identities since 2005. The technology they use is proactive rather than reactive. Reactive solutions are often too late, informing consumers that there is an identity theft issue after meaningful damage has already happened. Nothing can stop identity theft from happening but knowing early can mitigate the damage substantially.

As of April 2016, there are 4.3 million members enrolled with a 85.8% retention rate. Because members vote with their wallets, that’s a large degree of confidence from existing members.

The company is rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau of Greater Arizona.²
