I would like to know your thoughts on Lifelock vs Mint Credit Monitor. I currently use Mint.com for my personal financials. Mint Credit Monitor is cheaper, but I image Lifelock is much better known.

What would you go with and why, other than Lifelock is better known?

I am not very well informed in this so cannot venture an opinion but wanted to give you a third alternative I met at a networking event last week.

Legal Shield aparently does the same function and claims they actually help you recover your identity and work with the agencies to fix things where the others do not. Just FYI

In my opinion, they are all a waste of money.  You should just put a freeze on your credit and you don't have to worry about any of that noise or expense.

Depending on where you live, you'd be out a max of $30 ($10 per credit bureau).

As far as your credit goes, the bad guys can't touch it.

Here is a review of Lifelock. It gets 4 out of 5 stars.
The article gives you a complete review.

As you can see, the LifeLock Credit Score Manager gives you credit reports and scores from all 3 of the credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion)

There are do it yourself alternatives.
Instead of paying  for credit monitoring could can get their free annual credit reports from the three major bureaus at by going to:

Thanks for the tips, all equally good. I'm probably going to do my own checking, didn't realize it was that easy.
