How you can protect your digital self with Identity Guard

Every two seconds, someone becomes a victim of identity theft, and people spend 154.5 million hours fighting to take their identities back. In fact, identity theft is the #1 consumer crime in the United States, and it’s only getting worse as technology advances and hackers become more sophisticated.

When we were working on the Pango subscription, it was clear that we needed a robust identity theft solution to help keep our members safe.

What we loved about Identity Guard was that the service monitors your personal information 24/7 and alerts you quickly when it detects any activity that could indicate credit fraud. With services like dark web monitoring, $1 million insurance*, and stolen funds reimbursement, Identity Guard works around the clock to keep you protected.

“I’ve been an investor and board member at Aura, the company behind Identity Guard, for the past year. Hari and team are committed to building the world’s best products to protect peoples’ financial lives online. Even better, Identity Guard protected me earlier this year when someone tried to open a bank account in my name. I am thrilled to now be able to offer that protection to all of our Pango subscribers,” said Sujay Jaswa, Pango’s CEO

Our subscription offers many of the tools you need to safeguard yourself from online dangers—such as Hotspot Shield to protect your data on public Wi-Fi, 1Password so you can easily manage and secure your passwords, and Robo Shield to avoid scam calls trying to steal your sensitive information. The inclusion of Identity Guard ensures that, in the event you did become a victim, you have the help you need to restore your identity and avoid a potentially devastating financial disaster.

Using Identity Guard is easy, too. Simply sign up, set up your watchlists, and sit back knowing that you’ll be alerted if anything suspicious occurs, with a team of experts ready to help you in the event of fraud.

Hari Ravichandran, the founder and CEO of Aura—the creators of Identity Guard—put it: “As technology rapidly evolves, it’s more important than ever to have solutions that protect consumers from identity risks. Identity Guard is the perfect complement to the Pango subscription because of our mutual objective to simply pioneer digital protection for our modern lives.”

Naturally, we agree, and we’re thrilled to partner with Identity Guard and include it in our suite of products. After all, delivering peace of mind is what we at Pango do best.
