Identity Theft Protection

Just noticed that Quicken is partnering with Allstate to offer Identity Theft Protection Services (at a monthly fee) - guess this competes with firms like Lifelock. Just wondering if anyone uses these services and whether they're worth the fee? I do keep a constant watch on my accounts and would notice any suspicious activity pretty quickly, so not sure it's worth the investment.

Nope, don't believe them notifying my after the theft is useful.

Instead I froze all 3 of the credit reporting companies. Now nobody can get a loan/credit card/or bank account in my name.

I froze mine too. I’m sure there are cases where knowing more earlier helps, but scare tactics is always a good sales strategy.
