Telenor has integrated an ID surveillance service into its offering as it looks to help protect customers against the likes of online theft and privacy breaches.
The operator has signed a deal with Eyeonid to roll out the start-up’s proactive solution across its footprint.
The tech works once customers register the likes of their credit card numbers and email addresses with the start-up.
The company’s platform continually searches public networks and the dark web for this data, sending the customer a warning, along with recommendations for actions to be taken, if it is discovered in places it should not be.
Eyeonid, which was found in 2014, claims its service is proactive as it can alert people before their data is exploited.
Telenor customers in Norway are the first to get their hands on the offering, after Eyeonid was integrated into the opco’s service platform and mobile app.
Subscribers in other Telenor markets are set to follow, although no details were given.
Siv Bayegan, Business Manager, Future Services, at Telenor Norway, said: “We have for some time been working close to Eyeonid to create the ultimate customer experience for our customers.
“Today, we are very proud to offer our customers an extremely important and advanced service against ID theft and breaches of privacy online.
“For Telenor as a supplier, it is extremely important to continuously assist our customers with relevant services and solutions to our customers' challenges.”
