Protect Yourself! Identity Information Data Breach

Credit Freeze

One option for consumers to protect themselves from identity theft or fraud is to place a "Freeze" or "Security Freeze" at each credit bureau or consumer reporting agency.  Doing so would prevent any new loans or credit accounts being opened, unless you "unfreeze" (release) the credit report in advance.  There may be a fee required both for setting up the Freeze, and, for unfreezing each time.
