mySafety Insurances was the first company on the Swedish market to offer individuals insurance that works both proactively and reactively against ID thefts. As the crime rate has increased, the insurance has been updated on a regular basis, e.g. by including the market's highest legal protection of SEK 2 million.
Now, the insurance is being further expanded and as of 1 July, mySafety ID protection insurance will include monitoring the customers' personal information and credentials on the dark side of the web, deep web and darknet. mySafety is the sole supplier of this service.
Every third minutes someone is ID hijacked in Sweden. It is a type of crime that has exploded in recent years and is estimated to turn over SEK 6 billion – every year. mySafety Insurances has since 2008 provided an ID protection insurance, where victims have been assisted in contesting invoices and credits taken out at ID hijackings, compensated for losses related to ID hijackings and offered legal assistance. Since 2016, the market's highest legal protection of SEK 2 million is included.
ID MONITORING A BRAND-NEW MONITORING SERVICE ON THE MARKET
As of 1 July, mySafety Insurances, thanks to its partner Eyeonid, introduces a brand-new monitoring service on the market. ID monitoring allows the customer's digital identity such as personal identity number and email address to be monitored on the internet. The monitoring is done on hidden sites, hacker communities, forums and other sites on the internet. If sensitive information is leaked, the customer is notified in real time and assisted by mySafety in taking the necessary measures.
– Using Eyeonid's technology, we are now offering our customers an even greater protection against ID hijacking and card thefts. Our ID protection insurance is today Sweden's most purchased ID protection and we have previously added services such as legal assistance and legal protection compensation for the increased benefit of the customers. It feels great to now also be able to include a strong proactive component thanks to Eyeonid's monitoring services, which gives us a more comprehensive solution for ID protection and monitoring, says PA Prabert, Vice President of mySafety Insurances.
ID monitoring will be included in the ID protection insurance of all existing and new customers.
