Identity Theft

The threat of identity theft continues to grow, especially from internet and computer use. If you are an Allied Identity Theft Insurance policyholder, please take time to read below about what Allied is offering their customers to help protect them from this threat.


There are 2 new enhancements (DataScrambler and PhishBlocking) that are now being offered for our ID Theft policyholders. These enhancements are software that can be downloaded onto personal computers and designed to protect against key logging and phising attacks. These enhancements are FREE of charge.

What are "Key Logging" and "Phising" Attacks?
Key Logging- A type of surveillance software that records every keystroke you make including instant messages, email and any information you type at any time using your keyboard and then transmits this information to an unknown third party, who can use this information to have access to your confidential information.
Phising Attacks- A type of online identity theft that involves the use of email and fraudulent websites to steal your personal data or information such as credit card numbers, passwords, account data or other sensitive information.
