Top Tips for Maximizing your ID Theft Protection:

  • Register at www.MyCoreID.com - This secure portal is your one-stop connection to all your plan benefits, including any current ID theft risk alerts, data breach alerts and tips on outsmarting identity thieves. The first time you log in, you'll need your member number from your Welcome Kit. If you have misplaced this info, just call us at 855.262.7610.
  • Activate & set preferences for RiskAlerts. These important notifications tell you when we've detected suspicious activity that could mean identity theft. If so, you'll be able to respond right away to stop identity thieves in their tracks. You'll need to register at MyCoreID.com to activate your monitoring, and can also use the portal to let us know if you'd like to receive RiskAlerts by email or text to your mobile phone.
     
  • Order your free annual credit reports from AnnualCreditReport.com (for more info on how & why, see the video link in the right hand column). With the Credit Report Track feature of your ARX-ID plan, you can set up reminders and pick whether you want to be reminded once a year, or stagger your three reports throughout the year. Our CREs (Certified Recovery Experts) can also help you review your credit report, answer any questions you might have, and take care of correcting any errors for you.
  • Consider upgrading your plan. ARX-ID comes in three levels - ARX-ID Essentials, with basic identity monitoring; ARX-ID Complete with full identity and online profile monitoring; and ARX-ID Complete Family, for full monitoring of all household family members. As a current member, you may qualify for deep discounts over the retail price. Again, checking your current plan level or upgrading is easy at MyCoreID.com.
  • Find us on Facebook or Twitter (@COREIDServices)Find us on Facebook!. We regularly post new scam warnings, tips, news, guides and breach alerts, to help keep you on top of the latest threats.Follow us on Twitter! @COREIDServices
  • Take 5 minutes to read CORE Concepts (if you miss an issue, don't worry, they're also on MyCoreID.com!). This free monthly e-newsletter gives us a chance to get a little deeper on identity theft topics like medical ID theft, social media risks, and protecting vulnerable family members like kids or seniors. Plus we explain features of your ARX-ID plan, and give other important reminders and alerts that can help keep your identity safe.

Parent's Guide to talking about online safety

Kids & Online Privacy

COPPA, the law that helps parents protect their children's online privacy, got a major overhaul on July 1, 2013. This law helps parents control what info is collected about kids under 13, including your kid's real-world location (known as geolocation). To help understand how you can use this law to help protect your children -- or what to do if a site or app seems to be violating it -- visit the FTC's website. You can also click the picture above for a free guide on talking with your kids about online safety.
