Why should I check my background? I have no criminal record.
Approximately 15 million people a year in the United States alone experience identity
theft. The financial losses exceed $50 billion dollars annually. In other cases,
individuals’ identities can be stolen to commit criminal acts and charges and/or
convictions can and will be issued in that person’s name. Problems like these can
be easily prevented by knowing what information is in your record. Knowledge is
the best defense against identity theft, and eKnowID will provide you with this
What is SSL? Does eKnowID have a SSL certificate?
SSL is an acronym for “Secure Sockets Layer.” It is a security protocol developed
for sending information over the Internet safely and securely. It makes your sensitive
information unrecognizable to all servers except the one you are inputting your
data into. Any website that asks sensitive information should be SSL secure, and
eKnowID does have a SSL certificate.
Why do you need my Social Security Number?
We will only ask for a social security number if you request a social security number
verification or credit check.
