Lifelock does not offer a preventive layer of protection for Social Security Numbers. Instead, Lifelock services include three layers of protection: detect, alert and restore. Lifelock's disclaimer states that the technology cannot monitor all transactions.
Lifelock's technology monitors the customer's Social Security Number and other information to detect potentially fraudulent attempts to obtain credit or loans. When Lifelock detects suspicious activity, they send a fraud alert by text, email or phone.
In case of identity theft, a Restoration Specialist takes charge of hiring professionals to help with identity restoration. Lifelock guarantees its services and assures customers that the company will spend up to one million dollars to help the customer recover.
