No, credit monitoring does not ensure that. It will just alert you when new accounts are opened. Credit Karma only give you monitoring for Transunion and Equifax, you need to keep an eye on Experian too. What you might want to consider is "freezing your credit reports". Info on how to do this is at the credit bureaus websites. Might also want to consider a product like LifeLock or some other type of protection.
