How we are different
Social Media Monitoring: IDShield monitors your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram and Tik-Tok accounts and sends privacy risk notifications directly to your email or IDShield’s industry-leading app if personal information has been exposed through image captions, posts and comments.
Reputation Management: IDShield helps members mitigate personal and professional risks through comprehensive scans of their social media accounts – including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Tik-Tok– for existing content that could damage online reputations and help showcase members’ best selves with a strong professional profile. Posts and comments containing harmful language, images and/or videos are flagged for review. You will be notified if your social content presents reputational risks such as foul language, drug references or discriminatory terms. You can control the sensitivity level of your alerts in your account settings - including categories for profanity, violence and more.
Reputation Score: A reputation score is provided based on content and photos found on scanned social media accounts. Tips to improve your score are provided along with social posts and photos that were flagged as part of the scan, giving you the opportunity to review the content and decide if you want to remove it from your personal accounts to improve your score.
