Now, you can freeze and unfreeze your credit at the three major credit bureaus for free, thanks to a new federal law that took effect on September 21, 2018.
In addition, the law extends the length of time a fraud alert remains on your credit report to one year, from the previous period of 90 days.
You will need to contact all three credit bureaus to place a freeze on your credit report:
- For Equifax: www.equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services/
- For Experian: www.experian.com/freeze
- For TransUnion: www.transunion.com/credit-freeze
