How do I freeze my credit?
A credit freeze protects you by blocking access to your credit reports.
You’ll need to contact each credit bureau separately: Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. You can call their toll-free numbers or visit their websites.
Although each bureau has different requirements, you’ll generally need to provide your name, date of birth, Social Security number, and address.
And if you complete your freeze on the phone, be prepared to answer some authentication questions based on information from your credit report to verify your identity.
