Residential security service provider ADT has announced a new cybersecurity service called Digital Security by ADT, which provides four levels of cybersecurity protection for homes.
The four levels are identity protection, dark web defense, secure VPN and home network protection.
Identity protection minimizes the risk of identity theft by alerting users of possible fraudulent credit usage, criminal records monitoring and change of address.
Dark web defense continually monitors the home internet and notifies users when there are suspicious activities involved with their personal identifiable information, such as social security number, passport, driving license and credit/debit cards.
Secure VPN aims to protect the home Wi-Fi network from cybercriminals who interrupt data sent and received from computers or mobile devices. It also enables users to anonymously browse sites and apps from anywhere, as if they were at home.
Home network protection offers the most comprehensive package for homeowners, including ADT-installed security Wi-Fi router, secure VPN services, sex offender monitoring and dark web defense.
Each level of digital protection also provides 24/7 fraud incident resolution, so that homeowners can get cybersecurity help anytime.
Digital Security by ADT costs between US$4.99 to US$29.99 per month, based on the level of protection homeowners subscribe.
“With online threats occurring more often than ever before our mission evolved to not only help protect the premises, but also people on the go and their network and digital identity,” said Jim DeVries, president and of ADT, in a statement. “Digital Security by ADT is a customers’ personally identifiable information and network.”
