Identity Theft Protection

Effective May 19, 2017, Wells Fargo has discontinued the Wells Fargo Identity Theft Protection plan product. Wells Fargo team members who already have an Identity Theft Protection plan can continue to access the Member Center.

Other Important Details

  • Identity Theft Protection is not a credit counseling service and is not intended to help you obtain a loan or improve your credit record, history, or rating.
  • You must have a current profile with each of the three credit bureaus (Experian®, Equifax®, and TransUnion®) to purchase Identity Theft Protection.
  • If you purchase Identity Theft Protection online, you are required to enter a valid email address to receive updates and alerts.
  • Daily monitoring of all three credit bureaus will notify you if the following items have been added to your credit report: new inquiries, new accounts, certain new derogatory information, public records, potentially negative information, cards reported lost or stolen, or change of address.

  • 24/7 fraud monitoring
  • Zero Liability protection1 at no extra cost with your debit card and temporary replacement if that card is ever lost or stolen
