We have been receiving questions lately about a program called Advanced Identity Protector in regards to its legitimacy and actual usefulness.

We’ve created this article to explain more or less what this piece of software represents, as well as the potential side effects you could be facing, if you’ve had it installed on your PC. In addition, those of you who would like to remove Advanced Identity Protector from their computers will have the opportunity to do so quickly and effectively with the help of our removal guide, attached below.

What is Advanced Identity Protector meant to do?
As the name of the program would imply, its aim is to protect you from instances of identity theft. And with this really not being a joking matter nowadays, it would appear to be a pretty useful tool to have handy. This might especially be true for people who shop and store their personal details, etc. predominantly on their computers. And with malware like Trojans and Spyware prowling out there, it’s only logical that you would like to add an extra layer of safety to your private life and your finances.
Advanced Identity Protector is developed by a company called Tech Live Content and is marketed exactly as a program that will shield you from cyber criminals eager to get a hold of your sensitive information. It offers to guard all your passwords, emails, documents, credit and debit card information, online banking details, etc. The program is available for download from its official website and even offers to scan your computer for data that could potentially be stolen from you – absolutely free of charge. Once you realize that you might have a lot to lose, you can then download and install Advanced Identity Protector. You can download the free trial version, but you will constantly be prompted to purchase the full version for the humble amount of 29.95 USD at the time when this article is written. The developers will even throw in a photo editing program called Systweak PhotoStudio v2.1 for free just to tempt you.
What most reports say is that the program in question will be constantly running in the background and will from time to time generate a popup or other notification to tell you that your computer is at risk. And in truth, these notifications are often less than accurate, which leads users to believe that they’ve gotten more than what they bargained for. That’s not to say that Advanced Identity Protector is a virus of some sort – that’s certainly not the case here. But it is what we would consider to be a potentially unwanted program or PUP due to its rather questionable functionality. In addition, programs of this sort also often a bit trickier to remove, as we’re sure you’ve already come to realize and that really doesn’t help their image.
Furthermore, we’ve also had reports of this software being bundles with other programs. So users may even end up installing it without having any idea about it. That also doesn’t help anyone and is typically one of the signs of a PUP. As we pointed out earlier, if you would rather not have Advanced Identity Protector on your computer, you can always remove it with the help of the below guide. But since we’ve touched the topic of program bundles, we’d like to share a few tips with you that may prevent you from ending up in situations like this in the future.
Program bundles are packages of different software, where one or more programs can be added to the installation manager of one main program. When downloading this main program, you might not always be made aware of the added installs. So, it’s important that you carefully choose your download sources, on the one hand. And on the other you should always take advantage of the Advanced or Custom settings of the installation manager of a new program. This will allow you to gain more control over the setup and you will also most often have the option of disabling any added applications before they can get installed.
