SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With many families continuing virtual learning this back to school season, the time children spend online will increase, leaving families vulnerable to identity threats. In fact, nearly one third (32 percent) of families across the U.S. have experienced identity fraud, according to a recent Life360 survey.* The majority of parents (85 percent) are concerned about their families being safe on the internet, and more than a third (36 percent) are concerned about their child’s identity being stolen.
Families can head into the school year feeling confident and protected with Data Breach Alerts by Life360, rolling out for FREE to all members September 8, 2021. Data Breach Alerts provides free identity protection designed to keep families safe online, helping them stay ahead of potential threats before they become serious issues. The feature regularly scans the dark web to detect illegal trading and selling of personal information, so families can stop identity threats in their tracks.
“As kids spend more time online, we believe that digital safety should be more accessible to families,” said Chris Hulls, founder and CEO of Life360. “Parents have enough to worry about this back to school season and by offering our Data Breach Alerts for free, families can roam safely online.”
Unlike other identity theft protection services that can cost up to $40 per month, Data Breach Alerts by Life360 provides incredible value for families as the only family-focused dark web monitoring service offered completely for free. The feature also offers convenience; members have a complete view of their family’s breaches and next steps to secure their information, just by opening the app.
Families looking for even greater peace of mind online can upgrade to Life360’s Gold membership ($9.99/month) to get stolen funds coverage of $25K per member per year or Platinum membership ($19.99/month) to get stolen funds coverage of $1M per member per year.
