I have been notified that some personal information has been caught up in a data breach, and have been offered a free subscription to Norton Identity Advisor Plus as part of the putting things right.

 

Has anyone used this service before? Is it really worth it? I have a natural aversion to any/all Norton products, and I'm not sure that it's worth my time signing up for it. Pretty sure I'll get spammed to sign up for the million other "security" products they offer.

Is this breach on https://haveibeenpwned.com?

 

IMHO depending on what has been breached additional monitoring is worthwhile.

No, this is a local company that had a server breach. It's pretty much worst case scenario as far as breaches go, although nothing has been leaked publicly yet.

I'm just not sure if that Norton service will provide any benefits.
