Identity Theft

I’ve not kept up with the whole Equifax fiasco/security breach so I am not up to date on everything that happened, however I have been concerned that someone might help themselves to my information which I’ve head is a nightmare to clean up.  I had heard that Equifax was providing a year subscription for theft but I wasn’t sure how to go about signing up for it.  It’s possible that if you sign up for the identity protection, you will not be able to sue Equifax should there be a class action lawsuit in the future.

By most estimates, 1/2 of the population was affected by the security breach.  To determine if you are included in those numbers, go to their website to check:

Weather your information was part of the security breach or not, you can still sign up for a free one-year subscription to their identity protection program called Trusted ID.  The last day to sign up is November 21, 207.
