Equifax Cybersecurity Incident

09/08/2017

Equifax announced a cybersecurity incident (breach) involving consumer information. You can check your personal information for potential impact at https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/potential-impact/ and enroll in complimentary identity theft protection and credit file monitoring services at https:////www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/enroll/.

Additionally, you may want to consider freezing your credit at Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. Freezing your credit costs $10 for each agency and helps prevent people who have acquired your info from fraudulently getting credit in your name. Once you freeze your credit, no one can check it or apply for credit in your name until you unlock it again. Here are the direct links to freeze your credit for each credit agency.
