TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LifeLock, Inc. (NYSE: LOCK), a leading provider of identity theft protection services, and Vivint™, the largest home automation services provider in North America, today announced a partnership that will offer Vivint customers the ability to bundle their new or existing Vivint package with LifeLock’s intuitive identity theft protection services.
“Many of today’s burglars aren’t just taking the TV – they’re also grabbing identification cards and documents with personally identifiable information with the intent to commit identity fraud,” said Todd Davis, Chairman and CEO of LifeLock. “That’s why we’re so excited to give consumers some peace of mind by combining LifeLock’s industry-leading identity theft protection with Vivint’s innovative home security and automation technologies.”
By taking advantage of the bundled service, customers can enjoy identity theft protection and home security with a single discounted fee.
“We’re always looking for new ways to benefit our customers,” says Todd Pedersen, CEO of Vivint, “and in the digital age, there’s a lot more to safety than locking the front door. That’s why partnering with LifeLock makes so much sense. It extends our traditional offering of protecting families to protecting identities, allowing us to give our customers a system that will help secure their lives.”
The comprehensive security solution includes LifeLock’s identity theft protection service, which detects and alerts customers to suspicious account activity in its network and then helps them restore their good name. Other features of LifeLock’s service include notification of credit and non-credit threats, black market website surveillance, lost or stolen wallet remediation and access to a dedicated remediation specialist.
In addition, customers will enjoy Vivint’s 24x7x365 monitoring by one of the top monitoring centers in America as well as smart security technology. This includes a digital touchscreen control panel, wireless window and door sensors, glass break sensors, video surveillance, and remote access. Homeowners can check the status of their home at any time on their phone as well as receive customizable texts alerting them to any breach of security.
For LifeLock and Vivint customer, Kimberly L., these features were exactly what she was looking for when it came to helping protect her family.
“Knowing that our home and our credit—things we’ve worked hard to earn—are under constant protection puts me and my family at ease,” said Kimberly. “I appreciate that both Vivint and LifeLock take action to notify and help protect us from intrusions that could otherwise compromise our sense of security and well-being. Having both services has given us the ability to monitor and protect our home and our identities in a simple and easy way.”
