Rather than them acting proactively on protecting you and your information, you have to go to a website and then wait for days for them to protect you. I guess the stock sale took a bit out of their energy levels, so please check at https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/potential-impact/ and then register. BTW their asses are 3.44 billion dollars and that divided by 143,000, should cover the damages but you and I will get bupkis and their management already sold much of their stock. You might want to look up the the term BOHICA
The “check site” is guiding you to sign up to their premium package.
I already checked this morning and I have been impacted. There needs to be some kind of retribution against these companies that cannot protect personal information.
“”BTW their asses are 3.44 billion dollars””
Really - a new formula for measuring a company’s worth?
You think it’s safe to go to the link?
I know, I’d rather their asses went to prison.
To top it off, the big whig’s sold their stock off immediately after it was uncovered internally and before it became public knowledge.
The site says “To determine if your personal information may have been impacted by this incident, please follow the below steps.” Instead of saying ‘compromised’ they try to soften the blow by using the euphemism ‘impacted’. Even after this massive breech, they are still trying to manage perceptions.
Instead of ‘incident’ I’m surprised they didn’t call it a ‘matter’ like Loretta Lynch did.
Yup, me too.
Look like it is going to take DAYS before one can enroll. And they don’t tell you if they are doing it for free.
Your enrollment date for TrustedID Premier is:
Please be sure to mark your calendar as you will not receive additional reminders. On or after your enrollment date, please return to faq.trustedidpremier.com and click the link to continue through the enrollment process.

Its a fake site.
how do we know this is a true site?
I wouldn’t do anything until I knew that this was real.
It isn’t even Equifax.com
Put that kind of penalty in place and we’d be amazed at how quickly data security would improve.
I am impacted and got the same date/message.
“The Atlanta-based company said Thursday that criminals exploited a US website application ...”
The CRIMINALS are the Equifax executives that sold their stock before the breach was made public. If this isn’t insider trading...then Hillary Clinton is an honest person.
Lets see... I provide my last name and 6 of 9 digits to my SSAN. Another 1000 guesses at most and bingo... I have a match.
Where does that link go?
Nice way to acquire that kind of info...
I checked other sources and I believe the link is legit. I signed up : name and last 6 of SSN. Site tells you if you were impacted, or not impacted.
