Credit Freeze vs Lifelock

By Terry Savage on September 18, 2017 | Credit/Debt

Hi Terry, Thanks for all of your guidance regarding the credit breach. If I already have LifeLock, is it necessary to also do the credit freeze? Thanks,

Terry Says

Lifelock notifies you if they see your name, address, SS number "in play" (ie being sold on the dark web or being used to open new credit).  By then it may be too late.  Better to do the freeze and have the best chance to prevent this from happening!
