How to protect yourself from The Equifax Breach

Up to 143 million Americans were affected by the Equifax breach. That means social security numbers, credit card data and other personal info was exposed to hackers.

If you’re concerned about identity theft or wondering how to protect yourself, you can check your credit report for suspicious activity, review your bank and credit card statements, or consider placing a fraud alert on your credit files. For more on these options, check out the FTC’s website.
