Identity Protection

Your identity is one of the most frustrating compromises one can experience. There is no great way of preventing this from occurring once your information is leaked. There are, however, steps you can take to mitigate the chance of a successful use of your identity and quick remediation to an event. 

1. Freeze Your Credit

The first step to take when freezing your credit is to tackle the top three credit bureaus. The major three credit bureaus are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. There are other credit bureaus, but by freezing your credit with these three first, you will prevent the majority of fraudulent attacks. Each bureau provides an option for you to freeze your credit. A credit freeze is simply a hold on your credit that will not allow for new accounts to be opened when queried by an institution. A credit freeze is not permanent and can easily be removed if you wish to open a new account. Freezes can be submitted online, over the phone, or postal mail.
