Free Credit Freeze

One piece of protecting your identity is preventing scammers from opening accounts in your name without your knowledge. One way to do that is to “freeze” your accounts with the credit reporting agencies, Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax, Naturally, you don’t want the accounts to be frozen when you yourself are applying for anything that involves a credit check, but when you aren’t, it’s a safe practice. 

A new law goes into effect after September 21 that requires the agencies to freeze and unfreeze your accounts without charge.
