If you think you may be one of the 143 million plus Americans who were affected by the Equifax breach, keep reading as you will find 2 ways you can safeguard your credit starting today.
Freeze Your Credit Immediately
Whether you were affected by the breach or not, putting a freeze on your credit is a smart and easy way to protect yourself. When there is a freeze on your credit no one can use it without your permission. Not even YOU!
The only way your credit can be used is if you call in and “unfreeze” it using a secure PIN you create when you freeze your credit.
This is one of the best ways to protect yourself from scammers as no creditor is going to issue credit if they are unable to see your credit history.
Get Free Credit Monitoring and Protection
After some twisting of the arm Equifax finally decided to offer one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection for anyone you may have been affected by the breach. To sign up for free credit monitoring and protection visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usPKMwbCCPU
You only have until November 21, 2017 to sign up so make sure you do it today. The site is secure and you can find out if you were affected there as well.
