Consumer Identity is a discontinued corrupt anti-spyware program. Its official web site www.consumeridentity.com currently is active, but was recently acquired by other company and is no longer associated with the product. We couldn’t find any working installation package of Consumer Identity and therefore didn’t test the application. However, it definitely is a rogue spyware remover. We received numerous user reports stating that Consumer Identity produces false positives detecting harmless legitimate programs as dangerous parasites.
Users also informed us that the last available free version of Consumer Identity refuses to remove any critical objects it finds and asks to purchase full commercial version. It fails to update itself and uses outdated spyware definitions database.
According to reputable spyware experts such as Eric L. Howes, the application is a clone of other corrupt spyware removers such as TheSpywareKiller, Protect Your Identity, SpywareKilla, Spyware C.O.P. and others. The screenshots tell the same. However, we cannot be absolutely sure, as the program was not tested.
Although in the case with Consumer Identity we cannot provide our own incontrovertible evidence, we DO NOT recommend using this product.
