Q: Does LifeLock monitor fraud at all three credit bureaus? When I sign up, will I be able to see my 3 credit reports online or will they be mailed to me?
A: The basic LifeLock plan does not provide 3-bureau credit monitoring, however, the more advanced LifeLock Ultimate does feature 3-bureau credit monitoring. LifeLock Ultimate includes all the great identity theft protection features of the well-known LifeLock plan and adds onto it with 3-bureau credit monitoring, monthly credit scores from TransUnion, expanded monitoring for identity theft and a number of other enhancements. Both LifeLock and LifeLock Ultimate do not offer online viewing of your 3-bureau credit reports, instead when you sign up they will be mailed to you. If you want to try out either service, you can do so free of charge via their free 30-day trial and if you choose to continue your membership after the 30 day period you'll receive a 10% discount on the subscription price.
