IdentityForce Offers Anywhere, Anytime Identity Theft Protection with Mobile App
IdentityForce Members Play Pivotal Role in Design and Development of Secure and Intuitive Mobile App Available on Android and iOS
May 2nd, 2017
IdentityForce, Inc., a pioneer of identity protection solutions and services, today announced the general availability of IdentityForce Mobile. The app is available now in the iTunes store for iOS users and the Google Play store for Android users. IdentityForce Mobile is available only to active IdentityForce members.
“With the consumerization of IT, mobile has infiltrated the workplace,” said Al Pascual, senior vice president, research director and head of fraud & security, Javelin Strategy & Research. “Organizations should proactively seek out employee benefits that are mobile friendly so that their employees can get on-demand access no matter where they are – at home, at work, or while on vacation. Identity protection is one of those benefits where mobile empowers employees to more easily become aware of what’s happening with their personal identity and to take control when fraud strikes.”
IdentityForce Mobile enables members to spot fraud quickly from anywhere, as well as view alerts and notifications immediately. The app’s intuitive navigation and features were designed and influenced by IdentityForce members through surveys and a preview community. The app includes access to key capabilities to ensure that members can instantly access all their personal identity protection information with just a few taps of their smartphones:
- Rapid Alert Dashboard | Provides an on-demand snapshot view of all alert notifications so that members can stay informed with one touch details.
- Financial and Personal Information Protection | Enables members to spot fraud quickly and stay on top of their key financial account activity. Members also have visibility into their personal account information and whether there is any dark web activity, the unindexed portion of the Internet.
- Comprehensive Credit Monitoring | Members with accounts that have credit monitoring gain immediate access to their credit scores and alerts with tips to help understand ratings and when to take action regarding potential fraud.
- Secure Mobile Access | Includes Two Factor Authentication (2FA) requiring a second form of authentication – a verification code – delivered by email, text, or phone, going beyond only User ID and Password credentials; and Touch ID fingerprint access, the de facto standard for proof of identity.
“IdentityForce Mobile showcases how our team embraced the feedback and recommendations from our members to give them exactly what they wanted and needed versus what we thought they should have,” said Steven Bearak, CEO of IdentityForce. “We are committed to ensuring that our members have control of their identity – anywhere, anytime. As a result, continued collaboration with our user community, along with the organizations that rely on us every day to protect the personal identities of their employees and clients, is at the forefront of our product development strategy. We want everyone to have the assurance, confidence, and increased protection we all need in today’s digitalized world.”
