Consumers can sign up easily for MogoProtect by downloading the Mogo app from the Apple app store or Google Play. Speaking about the partnership, David Feller, Mogo’s Founder and CEO, stated:
“This represents an important step in our plan to help Canadians manage and take control of their financial health as we truly believe identity fraud is one of the greatest risks facing consumers today. Teaming up with Canada’s largest home furnishings retailer, and a household name such as The Brick, is part of Mogo’s strategy to increase distribution of our innovative products to reach even more Canadians.”
Moe Assaf, Senior Director of Financial and After Delivery Services at The Brick, went on to add:
“As data breaches continue to happen, Canadians are at an increasing risk of becoming victims of identity fraud. Knowing how severe the consequences of this can be, we believe there is a need for all Canadians to be informed and have access to a digital identity fraud detection solution. After researching the market, we concluded that MogoProtect is an excellent mobile-first solution. By offering it to our customers, not only are we doing our part to help prevent identity fraud, but we are also delivering real value to our customers as part of our robust package of security products and services.”
