What is Identity Theft, and how can Jumbo protect me?

As stated by the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft is when someone gains access to personal information and uses it without your consent. They could use your information to perform a variety of tasks including opening new credit cards, taking over your existing accounts, or making purchases.

How does using Jumbo help protect me? Protecting your online presence with Jumbo helps reduce the risk of your information being compromised online. But identity theft can still happen to the best of us. We want to protect our users even if the worst case scenario happens, so we chose to partner with IdentityForce, a Sontiq Brand, to provide our Jumbo Pro users with $25,000 in Identity Insurance and ID Restoration.

What benefits does Identity Insurance provide? There's no two ways about it: identity theft is not a fun experience. But your Identity Insurance through Jumbo can help mitigate potential financial risks.

Jumbo's Identity Insurance provides you with a team of experts available 24/7 who can help you with the entire ID restoration process, and you can contact them directly through the Jumbo app. Additionally, our Identity Insurance guarantees that you recover certain out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages incurred if your identity is stolen, and you can be reimbursed up to $25,000 if money is stolen due to identity theft.
