These days most of us have a 'life online' – whether that is internet banking, online shopping or connecting with people via social networks. All of this requires us to share personal and financial information across many websites. DataPatrol (powered by Garlik) is an Identity and Online Fraud Assistance service which can help to detect the theft, loss or disclosure of your vital personal and financial information.
Here at Direct Line, we'll give you free DataPatrol Identity and Online Fraud Assistance worth £45 when you renew your home insurance policy with us after a full policy year.
Alternatively, if you take out Home Insurance Plus you can benefit from DataPatrol Identity and Online Fraud Assistance straight away.
How does it work?
- Your personal information: name, usernames, aliases and email addresses;
- Your contact information: home address, other addresses and telephone numbers;
- Your financial information: credit/debit cards, bank details, online banking IDs and online shopping IDs.
DataPatrol searches for your vital information across a variety of data sources, including:
- Public Websites
- Compromised and stolen data traded on Internet
- Public registers and Companies House
- Electoral Roll
- Royal Mail redirect database
