Why was this so hard to find?
A few months back EquiFax had a big data breech, and almost everyone in the country was affected. When I first heard the story they advertised a link for those affected and would give them a free 12 months of free credit report / identity protection. I didn’t write the URL down at the time because I thought it would be everywhere. That didn’t happen.
At first I did go on the Equifax site and saw there was a free email dark web scan, and then they offered a free trial but nothing about the free 12 months of identity theft protection. I didn’t want to sign-up and get a 30-day free trial and then pay for it. You are the company that got hacked! (hello!). Sneaky huh?
So, how did I find out
AT&T’s developer program sent me a link for the free 12 month identity protection from Equifax. They wanted developers in their program to know they were working with Equifax to protect information from further breeches.
How does it work
You click the link, verify your information has been breached and then they sign you up for FREE, no credit card, no sales calls. It was really easy, so to check and sign-up for yours Click this link
