@LarzS399735 , That’s a decision each person will have to weight for themselves. Most of what ID theft protection can do, you can do for free. The premium is pay that might be worth the peace of mind for some, however make sure to read what the insurance covers because many people who are victims of ID theft recover most of their financial losses, but they can’t recover their loss of time recovering their identity, and that’s not usually covered by insurance.
