Prilock, found online at Prilock.com, is a company that says their goal is to show you the "tips, tricks, and free programs" used by technology professionals to protect their own money, credit, ID, and family.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, anti-virus software currently only succeeds in stopping about 45% of cyber attacks, traditional ID Monitoring only protects you after you've been attacked, and there is new malware created to penetrate firewalls all the time. Because of this, Prilock claims that the only thing that truly protects you is knowing how attackers are going to try and steal from you and the best practices for deflecting those attacks.
Prilock is an Online Security Awareness training course compiled of seven different lessons that you can complete on your own schedule. These lessons will cover not only how and why you are targeted but also simple settings, tips, tricks, and software to improve your security.
Currently the cost of this training program is $69.99 for a 90 day license and $79.99 for a one year license. The website does reference a "Limited Time Introductory offer" at $29.99 for the 90 Day license and $39.99 for a one year license, but the specific details have not been published.
Prilock.com says that they offer a 30 day money back guarantee for their program if customers are unhappy with or dissatisfied with what they receive. This guarantee is not published in detail, but customers who believe they deserve a refund should contact them as soon as possible.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
Unfortunately there does not seem to be many customer or user reviews available for this program at this time. However, there are other companies who have reviewed this program and believe that it offers a unique and beneficial approach to online security.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other companies and programs that claim to offer security for your computer, your credit, or your ID, but they are the traditional methods of security that Prilock claims are faulty.

I ordered Prilock online and used the training. It gives you the option to break it up into pieces or get it all done (it was about 60 minutes total). Overall I learned a lot, there are so many scams that I had no idea about! Also I got a certificate at the end saying I completed the training and plan on turning it in to my computer class as credits. I'm going to have my mom take the training and she if she benefits from it too. Would deffinitley recommend this product, very easy to understand whether you're a teen or adult.
