As you might have heard, there has recently been a major data breach at one of the nation's three major credit reporting agencies, Equifax. If you have a credit report, there's a good chance that you're one of the 143 million American consumers whose sensitive personal information was exposed.
There are steps to take to help protect your information from being misused. Visit Equifax's website. Find out if your information was exposed. Click on the "Potential Impact" tab and enter your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number. Your Social Security number is sensitive information, so make sure you're on a secure computer and an encrypted network connection any time you enter it. The site will tell you if you've been affected by this breach.
For more information on how to protect yourself, please read this article from the Federal Trade Commission.
