Identity theft 
 With cyber bullying and cyber crime becoming every day events BullGuard has stepped into the breach by providing ground-breaking security that guards against online identity theft and social media abuse.


BullGuard Identity Protection is a twin-powered drive against identity theft and cyber bullying.

This landmark product breaks the mould by offering an identity theft protection tool that actually goes out onto the internet and searches in the dark crevices of the deep web for personal identity information that has been hacked and offered for sale.

Other products sit back and protect the device. If your personal information is lifted for a company’s servers and then touted for sale on the online black market, BullGuard Identity Protections tell you about it.

Is your online identity for sale today?

Identity theft in the online environment  are no longer Sci Fi. . Remember the TK Max hack?  Up to 45 million card payment details were believed to have been stolen. What about the Sony hack?  Up to 70 million gamers were affected.  And let’s not mention the allegedly largest credit card hack ever, an estimated 160 million credit and debit card details lifted from servers with losses running into hundreds of millions of dollars. Don’t forget, this is huge business for the underground – some hacker sites offer ‘fresh’ card details for sale every day.

With BullGuard Internet Protection you can be sure that you’re details are protected because we proactively monitor what is happening out there in the spider’s net that is the dark web. We give another meaning to credit card protection and identity theft protection.

Facebook protection against Cyber bullying

BullGuard Internet Protection also gives power back to parents by providing them with the tools to identify and bat off cyber bullying directed at their children. Cyber bullying is nasty, insidious and often extremely destructive to those on the receiving end.  Tales of horror surface on a regular basis. Children, unfamiliar with the ways of the world and still developing a sense of identity and defences, exposed to perverse behaviour and cruelty often turn in on themselves, thinking the malignancy of others is their fault.  As we know, it can lead to tragic consequences.

However, BullGuard Identity Protection provides the tools parents need to guard against this tide of vindictiveness. It offers Facebook protection by allowing parents to set safe parameters around their children’s use of Facebook. For example, via a dashboard, they can see if any ‘friend’ requests their children receive are bona fide, or possibly suspect. Parents can also monitor content for malicious web site links or signs of cyber bullying. It’s a tool that gives parent’s peace of mind because they can see any suspicious activity, yet at the same time allow their children to benefit from social media.

If identity theft protection is something that concerns you, or simply credit card protection is important to you then you need to consider BullGuard Identity Protection. You simply add the personal information you want to protect, whether its card details, passport number, driving licence details or other, and we do the rest. If you’re concerned about Facebook protection and guarding your kids against shadow characters with suspect motives or nasty ways, then again you need to consider BullGuard Identity Protection.
