How to Monitor your SSN Number


IdentiSafe uses a sophisticated Very Early Warning System to monitor private and public databases for signs of early identity theft and ID Theft Risk.

Social Security Monitoring

This system uses your Social Security Number, and the address in your account to look for manipulations that indicate you are at risk. The Very Early Warning System is running 24/7 with new information.

In the event that your information appears compromised, we will put a flag in your Dashboard along with instructions on how to protect yourself.

Our Family plans will allow you to monitor up to 5 family members' SSN numbers as well.


Start by logging in to your online Account Dashboard.

This feature is only available with our VPN Plus or VS One plans. If you have a basic VPN subscription, some of the relevant options may not appear.

Choose Identity Security from the main menu and activate your protection, if you have not done so already.

For more help activating Identity Theft protection, see our support article.

Press the Manage IdentiSafe button. You will be redirected to your IdentiSafe Dashboard.

This is where you can monitor and track your Credit Score, set up SMS Text Alerts, and more.

Select the Identity Monitoring tab, then choose Social Security Number from the drop-down menu.


Type your Social Security number in the box provided, then press Add.

You don't need to add any spaces or dashes, simply enter your 9-digit SSN number.

That's it! You will be notified on your Dashboard if we find any breaches.

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.
