Everything You Need to Know About the Equifax Breach

Equifax, one of the nation‚??s three major credit reporting agencies, reported in September a massive data breach lasting several months, in which 143 million Americans may have had their personal information exposed. Here at Market USA, we‚??re ready to help by providing you with clear instructions on some steps you can take to protect your identity.

Equifax, one of the nation's three major credit reporting agencies, reported in September a massive data breach lasting several months, in which 143 million Americans may have had their personal information exposed. Here at Market USA, we're ready to help by providing you with clear instructions on some steps you can take to protect your identity.

1) Find out if your information was exposed.

Visit equifaxsecurity2017.com and click the "Am I Impacted" tab. Enter your last name along with the last six digits of your Social Security number to find out if you've been affected. You'll also find easy access to frequently asked questions about the breach on the Equifax site.

2) Sign up for free protective services.

Whether your information was exposed or not, U.S. consumers are being offered a full year of complimentary credit monitoring and other services through Equifax's TrustedID product. The site will provide you with a date to return and sign up for these services. Be sure to follow up on the designated date because the last day for enrollment is Nov. 21, 2017.

The protective program includes the following features: Equifax credit report copies; three-bureau credit file monitoring, providing automated alerts of any major changes in your credit reports; Equifax credit report lock, preventing third parties from accessing your Equifax report; Social Security number monitoring, which performs online searches of suspicious websites that may list your Social Security number; and $1 million identity theft insurance, which covers some expenses in the event of a stolen identity

3) Place a credit freeze and/or a fraud alert on your files.

If your information has been exposed, consider placing a credit freeze on your record at the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion). This will make it more difficult for someone to open a new account in your name, though it won't stop a thief from making charges to your existing accounts. Or, instead of a freeze, you can place a fraud alert on your files, warning creditors that you may have been victimized by identity theft. This alerts them to verify if someone seeking credit in your name is really you. A fraud alert expires after 90 days; you have the option to place another fraud alert at expiration.

Even if your information was not exposed by the breach, it's always a good idea to monitor your credit card and financial accounts for charges you don't recognize. Visit annualcreditreport.com and follow instructions to obtain free credit reports.

4) File your taxes early.

If your Social Security number was accessed in the Equifax breach, it's best to file your taxes as soon as you possibly can to avoid refund theft come tax time.
