    at this rate, everyone in the USA will have 50 years of Identifty theft monitoring. The stuff is worthless unless it thwarts the use of unauthorized PII. Most simply alert you and say, oh, by the way someone used your PII….. =\

      I put security freezes of my credit reports more than one year ago and just continue to renew them. Gives a bit more peace of mind than these credit monitoring services.
