You can get your Equifax credit report for free at any time.
Our service scans the dark web and online forums where stolen personal information is traded illegally. If your details are found compromised, you will receive an Identity Watch Alert.
Safeguard against identity theft by receiving alerts when key changes occur on your credit report. This includes new credit enquiries - which could be someone else trying to apply for credit in your name.
If you are the victim of identity theft we can help relieve some of the stress with up to $15,000 to help restore your identity.
*Cancellation can be requested at any time and will take effect at the end of the month in which you can cancel your subscription.
You need to be 18 years of age and over to order a copy of your Equifax Credit Report. If you think you've been a victim of identity theft, you have the right under the Privacy Act to request a ban on your Equifax credit report.
