Why does MyIDCare require two steps to log in to my account?

Your MyIDCare account uses multi-factor authentication to meet stringent requirements for secure identity validation and verification. Multi-factor authentication is a security feature that’s designed to prevent anyone from accessing your account, even if they know your password. This extra layer of security requires you to log into your account with your password as well as a 6 digit security passcode you receive via text message, phone call, or email.The security passcode you receive expires after 15 minutes and can only be used once.

A 6 digit security passcode may be sent to you via a text message, phone call or email in the following situations:

  • You need to reset your account password
  • You have not logged into your account in over 60 days
  • You are using a computer or device other than the one you used to enroll in services
  • You are using a computer or device you have not previously used to log into your account
  • You are using a computer or device other than the one you last used to log into your account
Why am I receiving an alert notification related to a change in my credit or identity monitoring that took place weeks ago?

As a part of our monitoring services, ID Experts works with the credit bureaus directly to provide you with this information as soon as we receive it. Many financial institutions and creditors strive to report changes or new accounts to the credit bureaus in real time. However, when you apply for credit, create a new account, or make a change to an existing account, some financial institutions and creditors may take up to 30-60 days to report that information to the credit bureaus. Additionally, depending on the type of information, they may not report that information to the credit bureaus at the same time and in some instances may report that information to one credit bureau rather than all three. Of course, even if you did not receive an alert from us regarding fraudulent activity, you have full-service identity restoration and identity theft insurance coverage. This coverage includes all incidents of identity theft that occur during the coverage period, regardless of the source, with no deductible.

How do I receive additional free copies of my Credit Reports?

You are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) once every 12 months. You can request all three reports at once, or space them out throughout the year. You can request your free credit report by visiting Annual Credit Report at https://www.annualcreditreport.com or by calling 1-877-322-8228.

Why shouldn’t I use a .gov, .mil, or .edu, email address?

If you use a .gov, .edu, or .mil email as your primary email address, and then you leave your government or military position or school, you may not have access to that email address anymore. Without access to that email address, it may be more difficult to view your account in the future. You also may not receive timely email alert notifications related to your MyIDCare monitoring services. Using a personal email address that you control (such as a gmail, yahoo, or hotmail), is the best way to make sure you can always receive important MyIDCare monitoring and account information.

What if I currently use a .gov, .mil, or .edu email address for my MyIDCare account?

If you currently use a .gov, .mil, or .edu email as your MyIDCare primary email, you should update your MyIDCare account to use a personal email address that you control (such as a gmail, yahoo, or hotmail account). You can do so by viewing the My Account section in the portal.
