How much money have you invested in protecting your physical assets? Most people treat their material possessions with utmost care and attention. In the same way, you need to invest in securing your identity and online transactions. 

Now more than ever, most people are spending much time on their devices during the pandemic. With the increased internet usage each month, it is easier to overlook the risks of online services such as identity theft, hacking, credit card fraud, and cyber scams.

 With this in mind, TELUS  offers an all-in-one security solution known as TELUS Online Security. Designed to make your online time safer, this tool will come in handy whether you are shopping online, streaming entertainment, remote learning, or remote working.

  • Protection for Various Devices

For most people, digital devices have become a necessity during the pandemic. You can attend video conferences and meetings, shop online at your preferred online store, and even interact with your friends and loved ones. However, this only puts us at the risk of cybercriminals, especially when we don’t secure these transactions.

 Fortunately, you don’t have to live at the mercy of hackers, all thanks to TELUS Online Security. This tool can offer protection for several devices, whether using a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other devices. You can choose the most suitable solution for your online security needs from their three plan actions.

  • Protection for Your Private Information

As you browse through the various websites and social media platforms, you are likely to leave traces of your personal information on the internet. Besides, using public Wi-Fi to browse online can make you a victim of identity theft.

 The good thing is that TELUS Online Security has a secure virtual private network (VPN) that can secure your online connections and keep you anonymous. It will secure your sensitive information like passwords, credit cards, and bank details. Also, you can rest assured that no one is snooping over your private conversations. 

  • Dark Web Monitoring

An impressive feature of this tool is the Dark Web Monitoring, which searches the dark web for your information. It is easy to fall prey to identity theft when you don’t secure your online transactions and activities. Unfortunately, cybercriminals may sell your information on the dark web without your knowledge. 

 To access the dark web, you need special software like TELUS Online Security. This helpful feature will check if your personal or financial information is found on the web, and it will then notify you. With this feature, you can prevent cybercriminals from using your information to do malicious activities. 

  • Personal Expense Reimbursement

If you become a victim of identity theft, recovering from this breach can become such a challenge. For this reason, TELUS Online Security comes with a Personal Expense Reimbursement and Coverage that is designed to cater for any expenses that you incur as a result of a breach. 

You will also be covered for lawyers and expert fees, depending on your plan subscription. Nonetheless, the maximum coverage can range from $25,000 to $1 million.

What’s more, you will be provided with a dedicated Identity Restoration Specialist to help you with your identity theft case. The specialist will guide you all the way so you can recover your stolen identity with ease.
