I have a client that has some problems with their listings being hijacked (it is an addiction center that gets hijacked by lead gen companies).

Is there any software that would track the GMB profile, and alert us to any changes (like phone number, website, etc.)?

Or is there anyway I can put the profiles on lockdown, so that Google will not make any changes?

We built a scraper with python to verify the data we put into the listing is appearing on the SERP. When it doesn't match, those accounts are output into a CSV for our local team to address. Might be something to investigate for your use.
