Norton launches consumer identity theft defence solution

Norton has launched its Norton Identity Advisor Plus, for consumer identity protection.

Steve Wilson, U.K. and Ireland Director at NortonLifeLock, says: “Unfortunately, personal information accessed through criminal tactics may result in identity theft. A hack or data breach could lead, for example, to a loan being taken out in your name, which could impact your life and potentially your credit score. Alongside Cyber Safety solutions included with this new plan, we’re also providing access to dedicated Identity Restoration Specialists, offering that all-important guidance to victims of identity theft.”

Norton Identity Advisor Plus comes with an easy-to-use dashboard for users to register their personal information for monitoring, including Social Media Monitoring. This feature monitors popular social media platforms and notifies the account holder if there are signs the account may be compromised or if potentially risky links are found2. If a customer suspects their identity has been stolen, they have access to a dedicated Identity Restoration specialist.

Norton Identity Advisor Plus features include: 

  • Monitors social media accounts for suspicious activity
  • Monitors and notifies if personal information shows up on the dark
  • Provides victims of Identity theft with Restoration Support, including a dedicated restoration specialist to help navigate the complicated process of resolving ID theft issues.

Also released is Norton 360 Advanced, designed for those looking to take advantage of Norton’s comprehensive Cyber Safety tools – all in a single solution. In addition to Identity Restoration support, Dark Web Monitoring and Social Media Monitoring, Norton 360 Advanced includes powerful layers of protection for your devices and online privacy against cyberthreats, plus Password Manager, 200 GB PC Cloud Backup, Secure VPN and Parental Control.
