Every hour of the day, criminals use tricks and sophisticated tools to try to break into people’s email, internet banking and records. Once they have them, an individual’s vital information – possibly even credit card numbers – can be used anywhere in the world.
Don’t run the risk of becoming a victim of fraud and identity theft. Nationwide identity theft coverage can help you protect your vital information, and keep you from having to spend countless hours trying to restore your credit and good name.

Enjoy extra protection for your computer
If you enroll in identity theft coverage, you’ll get additional coverage from our partner, Europ Assistance USA. This online data protection suite includes two tools to protect your sensitive data while you surf the Internet:
1. DataScramblerTM protects your keystrokes from being monitored.
