PrivacyGuard is a program that guards against identity theft and fraud, monitors your credit score and registers your credit cards, among other features. PrivacyGuard is unlike traditional computer security software; instead of selling the program to you and allowing you to use it on your computer at will, PrivacyGuard requires a monthly "membership" fee, which in 2010 is £11.0 per month. Removing PrivacyGuard will terminate the monthly fee.
