WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
A young boy, Marcus, was busy playing outside. He loves football and soccer and dreams about playing college sports or launching his own youtube channel. His mom Jill, received a call from a creditor who informed her that young Marcus’ identity had been stolen and that credit was being opened up in his name. A nightmare flashed in Jill’s eyes as she imagined a future where Marcus would be unable to qualify for a car loan, credit card or student loan. How would he be able to build his own life when he became an adult with a tarnished identity and credit profile?
This very real nightmare actually happened and when Marcus’ father Leo Kanell discovered the potential damage and life altering affect it could have on his son Marcus, that was when he knew that families and children everywhere would need to be protected. So Leo, a serial entrepreneur who has personally reviewed over 100,000 identity and credit reports in his career decided to create the first family focused Identity & Credit Insurance company in the US. The result is an identity protection platform that allows parents and children to sleep well at night knowing that they are protected by Identity Insured’s $1 million Identity & credit insurance. The software platform monitors family’s private information on the dark webs, social media like Facebook & Instagram, and each family member’s identity and credit profiles.
