    No company is immune to hacking. It's up to us to protect our personal information.

    True, but one can’t help but notice the irony here. Equifax is one of the first places people turn to for help when their identity has been compromised. We blindly trust the credit bureaus.

    Looks like I'll be enrolling for the free credit monitoring even though their site says my info wasn't compromised. How am I to trust that they know better than me about my info??

    When I checked for my wife and I it didn’t say that we’ve been compromised, but it also didn’t say that we haven’t been. Are you all getting the same message or something different?

    Oh I definitely get the irony. I just don’t put it past any organization these days to fall victim to data breaches.

    This is the screen I got right before I hit the enroll button.

    Well dang it. I just tried again and my wife and I both got this message:



    What’s super irritating about this is that they’re still making my wife and I wait until the 13th and 14th to enroll. I’m sure it’s to prevent TrustedID’s systems from being overloaded but I feel like people who may have been compromised should get some sort of priority.

    I totally agree with you that people who were compromised should get first priority for immediate enrollment. That's crazy that I have the same exact date as you to enroll and mine supposedly wasn't compromised. If anyone should have to wait that should be me not you. Sorry you're having to deal with this

    I believe you'll want to check the terms of service you agree to with trusted ID. I've heard equifax is including an agreement to essentially not sue them which would be one way to cover their *** for not protecting our data in the first place.

    No problem. If they had invested in a good firewall none of this would have happened. Here's a link discussing the terms of service.

    Don't enroll just yet. I'm posting this so people will do more research before they enroll. If you feel your info was compromised then contact an attorney. Never believe everything you read online.
