JUMBO’s mission is to make everyone safer online. For the past 2 years we have been working on that mission as a consumer subscription-based product. But during this time, we have also seen folks who couldn’t afford JUMBO’s best tools, and we found this at odds with the “everyone” part of our mission.
So, today, we are making our powerful features available for free to all of our users.
Some of our best features in JUMBO 4 that are now free:
In 2021 alone, nearly 42 million Americans became victims of identity fraud, costing consumers $52 billion - or an average of $1,200 per victim. With JUMBO, you are automatically protected with $25,000 in identity theft insurance in less than 30 seconds, for free.
Last year, JUMBO’s data breach scans discovered 988 data breaches and more than 331,000 leaked social security numbers, 850,000,000 leaked passwords and over 1,000,000,000 (that’s a billion!) exposed email addresses. With so much leaked data, it’s no wonder that identity theft and fraud are on the rise.
$25,000 in identity theft insurance is just the beginning. For each friend you invite who joins JUMBO, we will increase your coverage by $25,000. Invite 3 friends? You’re covered up to $100,000 in damages. 10 friends? That’s $275,000! There is no limit on the number of friends you can invite and you can reach a maximum of $1,000,000 in identity theft insurance.
In the end, you get better coverage, your friends get $25,000 insurance for free, and we spread the word about JUMBO. It’s a win-win-win.
Security is a social affair. If your loved ones have unchecked leaks, they could get hacked. If a hacker gets access to your family member’s accounts, that’s an entry point to steal your information, access your accounts and possibly steal your money.
Use JUMBO to invite those closest to you to join your JUMBO Family, and make sure they are protected for free. By helping your loved ones resolve their leaks, you and your family are that much safer.
JUMBO 4 also features a completely re-designed app, which is simpler than ever. The app now has 4 different categories: My Identity, My Money, My Phone, and My Family. Within each of these categories, you can find our most powerful features to protect you online. Learn more here.
Instead of charging consumers directly, we will be offering JUMBO for businesses to protect their teams without having direct access to their employees’ personal data. If you are interested in this for your company, please let us know at [email protected]
Just like before, JUMBO will never sell ads or monetize user data.
Our vision here at JUMBO is to make everyone safer online. We want to thank JUMBO users, both new and old, for being on this journey with us as we grow and improve our product. With the year-over-year rise in data breaches and identity fraud, the internet is becoming a scarier place. We’re committed to making the internet safer with the launch of JUMBO 4.
