What's the incentive to keep the data secure? Pretty much nothing.

By the way, if you sign up for the "free monitoring" you waive your right to partake in a class action lawsuit. Fine print.

"Equality, like liberty, is difficult to reconcile with scientific technique since this
involves a great apparatus of experts and officials inspiring and controlling vast
organizations. Democratic forms may be preserved in politics, but they will not have
as much reality as in a community of small peasant proprietors. Officials unavoidably
have power. And where many vital questions are so technical that the ordinary man
cannot hope to understand them, experts must inevitably acquire a considerable
measure of control." - Bertrand Russell, 1931 (p224) The Scientific Outlook. Written large, for the short sighted.

Crap! I signed up for the monitoring. Now I won't get that hugh class action check for three gumballs.

I think the free monitoring of their incompetent mistakes lasts like a year or something, and then you have to pay again.

I don't trust anything that says; "Do nothing and we'll begin to bill you automatically." That's a red flag if ever I saw one!
