ID Protect

Protects your personal information online



Today, there are an estimated 9 million cases of identity theft each year and 3 trillion spam emails sent each year. Spammers and thieves can get your information through your domain name’s public record. ID Protect keeps your information safe by privatizing your domain’s entry in public records.

Keeps You Safe ID Protect keeps your information private, so identity thieves can’t find you. 

 

Blocks Spam Your contact details are kept out of the hands of spammers, so you get less spam.

 

 Get Emails That Matter Legitimate emails such as purchase offers for your domain are still forwarded to you.

 

 Complies with ICANN ID Protect follows rules set out by ICANN, the governing body for domain names.

Other WHOIS masking products only falsify your WHOIS records which can jeopardize your domain registration. ID Protect secures your private information by storing it in a trusted 3rd party data vault, and is completely complaint with ICANN (ICANN is the governing body of Internet rules and regulations).
ID Protect forwards legitimate emails to your real email address, but keeps spammers and data miners away.

Without ID Protect, anyone can find your personal contact information including your home address.  ID Protect hides this information while protecting your personal address from getting into the wrong hands.

ID Protect takes your unprotected, personal information and shields it from the public so that they only see the anonymous information:
