Credit Monitoring FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Credit Monitoring

    Which credit monitoring services offer assistance in Spanish?

    We contacted each of the credit monitoring services to find out which services offer assistance in Spanish — as well as English — and found out that all of our reviewed services that offer both identity theft protection and credit monitoring also offer assistance in Spanish.

    Here is how to connect to the Spanish-speaking representatives:

    Identity Guard: To reach a Spanish-speaking representative of our top-rated credit monitoring and identity theft protection service, just call the main customer service line and select number one/option one on the phone from the home menu. Next select number two/option two on your phone and you'll be connected to a Spanish-speaking representative.

    Equifax: Just call the main customer service number for Equifax and select the number two/option two, and you'll be connected to a Spanish-speaking representative.

    For these services — Privacy Guard, TrustedID, SmarterCredit, Lifelock®, ProtectMyID.com — just call the main customer service line and ask to be connected to a Spanish-speaking representative.
