VANCOUVER, July 16, 2019
VANCOUVER, July 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Mogo Inc. (TSX:MOGO) (NASDAQ:MOGO) ("Mogo" or the "Company"), a financial health app, today announced a new partnership with League, a leading digital employee health benefits platform, under which Mogo's identity fraud protection solution, MogoProtect, has been added to the League member marketplace.
League's cloud-based infrastructure connects forward-thinking businesses and their employees with health insurance, flexible spending accounts, health content, curated health journeys and on-demand, live health support.
"We are excited to be working with League to make MogoProtect available on their fast-growing digital platform," said David Feller, Mogo's Founder and CEO. "League is empowering employees to take control of their health – a goal that lines up very well with our focus on helping Canadians improve their financial health through digital solutions such as MogoProtect. Financial stress continues to be the number one stress factor across all demographics, and identity theft is increasingly a key concern. This relationship allows us to get our mobile-first solution in the hands of more and more Canadians to reduce the risk and consequences of identity fraud. We continue to pursue new channels to expand the distribution of this product."
MogoProtect monitors a consumer's Equifax Canada credit bureau, sends alerts directly through the Mogo app and email after an inquiry, and guides consumers through the next steps to help prevent identity fraud. MogoProtect is seamlessly integrated into the Mogo app, where users also have the ability to monitor and track their Equifax credit score for free.
"Given how intertwined our financial health is with our overall health and well-being, we are pleased to bring Mogo's best-in-class identity fraud solution to members," said Jessica Gale, AVP Member Engagement and Marketplace at League.
MogoProtect was launched in November 2017 and was created to address a gap in today's protection offerings that are costly and do not offer daily monitoring and alerts through a mobile-first digital experience and to educate consumers about the need to protect their identity. Identity fraud can impact the ability to buy a home, retire and can take months and potentially years to correct. In a recent Gallup Poll, 66% of respondents were concerned about identity fraud because of the potential impact on their financial life. Approximately 80% of Canadians do not have this kind of identity fraud solution currently. MogoProtect is available for a monthly subscription fee.
League members can find more information about MogoProtect by visiting the marketplace in the League app.
