Our Story

This is why we started Wintarsons, what lead us to be interested in Identity Fraud, and more importantly find out what steps we could take to protect our personal information.

Like most of you, we are considerable consumers and users of online content, making online purchases, using social media, gaming and so on. These service providers require you to give sensitive information about yourself. Once we have given this information, we rarely give it another thought.
This changed about a year ago when a well known airline was involved in a Data Breach. Had our information been collected? Were we now at risk of having our information used fraudulently? We quickly realised that despite any fines leveraged against an affected company, the breached data was now out there online and there was no way to just click a button to delete it.
This got us thinking about a way to track and monitor our information on the web so that if it was available, we would have a better chance of knowing about it and would be able to do something about it.
Like all good ideas, the concept was fine, but monitoring the internet for this information is easier said than done. This is when a chance meeting with a company called Collinsons Group happened. They had a tool for searching the internet, including the Dark Web for this type of information. It had been developed for businesses that wanted to check their level of risk. We knew that this was what we had been looking for.
This leads us to where we are today. We are providing a service that allows you to have personal information tracked and, in the event, that anything is found, be alerted to this. Of course, being alerted is one thing, knowing what to do is another. So, in addition, an expert customer service team is also provided to help you.
