One of the three major credit bureaus, Equifax, recently experienced a huge data breach where hackers gained access to people’s names, birth dates, addresses, Social Security numbers, and even some driver’s license numbers. Credit card numbers for around 209,000 people have been stolen along with personal information for about 182,000 different people. To find out if your credit is in jeopardy, go to and click on “Potential Impact” located on the bottom of your screen. You will then be prompted to enter some identifying info, which will allow them to see if your personal data and identity are at risk.
