IDF Online Identity Protection Tools

Overview

IDF Online Identity Protection Tools is a software program developed by Identity Force. The most common release is 5.6.0.8909, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer.
