After the Equifax data breach where 148 million people’s personal information was compromised, it’s especially easy to see how vulnerable we are as consumers. So now more than ever is the time to freeze your credit! A new federal law has made it completely free to freeze and thaw your credit, so you don’t have any more excuses. In this episode we talk about why this is so important, we cover what a freeze does (and what it doesn’t do), and then we tell you exactly how to do it. Seriously it’s so incredibly easy that it shouldn’t take you more than about 5 minutes from start to finish!
Here are the links for the three major credit bureaus plus that new one:
- Equifax credit freeze
- Transunion credit freeze
- Experian credit freeze
- National Consumer Telecom and Utilities Exchange credit freeze
- Oh, and don’t forget to beat the freeze
