On a regular basis, we're bombarded with concerns regarding identity theft worries and how best to keep sensitive information safe. Recently released onto the App Store is an app that sets to calm those worries, all in a simple, portable way.
AllClear ID sets out to alert users whenever there's a report that criminals may have accessed their accounts. Bank accounts, credit cards and even the user's Social Security number are all monitored through the AllClear service.
Besides tracking such useful things, AllClear ID also offers a number of ways to protect the user's identity, such as the option to order a credit report or reduce junk mail. Security alerts come through either as a phone call or alert message with the option to connect to one of AllClear ID's investigators for assistance.
For the security conscious, AllClear ID is sure to set a few minds at ease. Even better, it's free to use although there is a Pro service available for $14.99, although it's far from essential.
