Should You Be Getting More Protection in the Wake of the Equifax Breach?

This is a great article outlining some key points and actions you can take to protect yourself from identity theft.  For links to services to help protect yourself see my page “ID Theft Help”

From the article:  Equifax offered a free one-year subscription to their identity protection services program as well as a credit freeze service free-of-charge. The deadline to sign up for that was recently extended to June 30, 2018. But if you are like most people affected by the breach, that deadline is meaningless. Three weeks after the breach was disclosed less than 1 percent of people eligible had signed up for the service, and the adoption rate is still anemic.

Practicing safe cyber hygiene on a daily basis is key. Here are some options to consider in the wake of the Equifax breach.
