Mogo Finance Technology Inc., a financial health app, announced a new program with Trans Global Insurance (TGI) to help customers of The Brick understand and prevent identity fraud.
Those who enroll in TGI’s credit insurance protection will receive important credit score information along with a voucher for 120 days free access to MogoProtect to help safeguard their identity.
Integrated into the Mogo Finance app, MogoProtect monitors a consumer’s Equifax Canada Co. credit bureau and sends alerts directly through the app and email. After an inquiry, consumers are guided through the next steps for fraud prevention. Users also have the ability to monitor and track their Equifax credit score for free.
“As data breaches continue to happen, Canadians are at an increased risk of becoming victims of identity fraud,” said Moe Assaf The Brick’s senior director of financial and after delivery services.
“Knowing how severe the consequences of this can be, we believe there is a need for everyone to be informed and have access to a digital identity fraud detection solution.”
