If you have watched the news lately, you most likely have heard of the EquiFax data breach. Equifax being one of the three major credit bureus had a major breach and from what is being reported, more than likely your personal information was comprimised, including: Name, Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Address, etc.
I will spare you my personal opionion on this issue other that to say that out of the three credit beuraus, EquiFax has been on my radar for the last two years and is not a company that I care for or trust. This breach is an example of why I loath them. Enough said on that.
Down to Business:
You need to know if your information was comprised. Fortunately there is a tool for this and can be access by going to: Equifax’s TrustedID website.
I recommend that you check your information and find out whether or not you are part of the breach. After checking, EquiFax will provide you with further steps to take if needed.
Please share this with everyone you know as it is important to find out if you have been compromised.
