Identity Protector is a legitimate application that should help users manage their passwords and protect them from identity theft. However, if you have the tool you might have already noticed it asks to purchase a full version and does not allow to use some of the features. It looks to us a bit suspicious since, for example, many legitimate antimalware programs enable users to test all features so they would see the software’s benefits and could decide whether they wish to have full access to them all the time. In this case, if the user wants to buy Identity Protector he might have to do this without even knowing how it may benefit the system. If you would like to learn more about this suspicious tool, you could continue reading this report, although if you came here just to learn how to erase it, we can suggest sliding below the article where you should find our provided deletion instructions.
The application can be downloaded from identityprotector.co, but it might be not the only way to receive it. According to our researchers, the software could travel with pop-up advertisements, bundled setup files, etc. Once installed, Identity Protector should be visible on the list of all installed programs that each user can find via Control Panel. If you launch it, the application should open a blue window showing five tabs: Overview, Scan, My Account, Settings, Register Now. If you click the Settings tab and go to Scan Area, you can see that the program scans user’s browsers and also unspecified “files and folders.” It seems to us the scanning areas could be described in more detail, especially the so-called “Files and Folders,” so the user would know what exact files and folders are being checked.
Moreover, another thing that caught our attention as we launched Identity Protector was an icon saying “Using Microsoft Technologies.” Placing such messages is quite usual for potentially unwanted applications to make them look more trustworthy. We do not know for sure if this is the case, but it is possible it could be. Also, as we said earlier in the article what raises a suspicion, not about the program’s legitimacy, but its usefulness is the way it does not allow to try out its essential functions for free. For example, the free version of the tool might not allow to fix the issues detected during its scan. Instead the user may receive a suggestion to purchase a full version.
Identity Protector costs about 24 euros and if the user tries to leave the payment web page he could receive a pop-up suggesting the same application for a half price. Of course, we would not advise taking the offer because there is not knowing if the program will be worth even the half of the sum you pay. Thus, if you are thinking about investing your money in some security tool, we advise you first to make sure it will be able to keep your system secure and will be worth of the paid sum.
Naturally, if you are not going to purchase the paid version of Identity Protector, you may find the application quite useless without being able to use all of its tools and possibly a bit annoying since it could keep suggesting you purchase the full version. If this is how you feel about the software, it might be best not to waste any time with it and look for a better security tool.
Users who decide to delete Identity Protector can eliminate it through Control Panel. All there is to do is launch the mentioned application, access its Uninstall a program or Add or Remove Programs feature, locate the software in question and press the Uninstall button. If this sounds a bit confusing you can have a look at the instructions found below this paragraph; they will explain how to erase the tool step by step.
