LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal
plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and
small businesses, announced today that it is offering a voice-activated
intelligent virtual assistant that can be used with any Amazon hands-free
device that supports its digital assistant Alexa, and Google Home. To
accommodate members’ changing lifestyle and communication habits, LegalShield
for Alexa and LegalShield for Google Home allow users to interact with their
devices and ask questions. Voice-activated engagement leverages a growing

Users can verbally ask questions just like they would talk to a person. The
new voice-activated assistant answers a range of questions addressing legal
needs, and is optimized for voice recognition. It can answer a variety of
LegalShield membership and general knowledge questions, as well as commonly
asked legal questions, with replies drawing from information based on the over
1.6 million legal intakes recorded by the company’s network of provider law
firms annually. The voice-activated assistant is free, but any applicable
costs associated with internet access and wireless service will apply.

“LegalShield prides itself in driving innovation across our product line,
consistently delivering new features and updates to benefit our members,” said
CEO Jeff Bell. “We are confident that our new voice-activated assistant will
enhance our award-winning customer service—and boost sales by providing an
additional platform to get the information you need.”

Amazon account holders can enable LegalShield by Alexa by simply saying,
“Alexa, open LegalShield,” and begin asking questions. Additionally, users can
get started by prefacing their question with, “Alexa, ask LegalShield…”

LegalShield for Google Home requires only that users simply say, “Ok, Google,
talk to LegalShield,” and begin asking questions. Similar to Alexa, Google
Home users can also interact with LegalShield for Google Home without first
opening LegalShield for Google Home by prefacing their question with, “Ok
Google, ask LegalShield…” or “Hey Google, ask LegalShield…”

With a recent study showing that voice-enabled speaker usage is poised to grow
nearly 130 percent in 2017, LegalShield continues to successfully roll out
product features that meet the demands of today’s customer.
