9. How frequently will I receive updates from DataPatrol?

DataPatrol monitors your information continuously across millions of unsecure web pages, social networks and the dark web (sites, forums and databases where personal information is traded).  You’ll receive an alert only when DataPatrol finds any issues that need your attention, so you’ll have early warning if anything comes up that might put you at risk.

10. How do I protect more information?

At the outset, DataPatrol will automatically be updated with the personal details you used to register for the service. However, in order to get the best out of DataPatrol, you need to regularly update your account with the items of personal and financial information that are important for you to keep safe. 

It’s completely up to you how much or how little information you add to your DataPatrol account.

Your personal data is split into three sections within the DataPatrol service: 

  • Personal details – here you can enter your usernames, aliases, nicknames, login IDs and any other names that you go by – any of which could put you at risk of online crime if exposed alongside other personal information online. You can also enter important data such as your National Insurance number and passport number in this section.
  • Financial details – here you are encouraged to enter your credit card, store cards, and bank account numbers so that we can ensure that these sensitive details are not exposed or being traded online.
  • Contact details – use this section to enter your email addresses, home addresses and phone numbers. It is important to include previous addresses, and personal as well as business email addresses, as this sort of information is commonly used by criminals to build up a picture of you and your personal history.

11. Is DataPatrol secure?

DataPatrol is an extremely hard target for online criminals. We undergo frequent security testing to the highest standards - to ensure the information you have stored within DataPatrol is kept safe.  DataPatrol is used by the customers of a number of leading banks in the UK and internationally.

12. Is DataPatrol available outside the UK?

DataPatrol from Garlik.com is currently available to UK residents only and Garlik Angel is available to US residents only. If you are interested in partnering with Garlik to offer DataPatrol to your customers outside the UK, please contact us at partners@garlik.com

13. Who regulates your work?

Garlik is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and is a member of the Enterprise Privacy Group (EPG), an association dedicated to best practice in the security of personal information
