The deadline to sign up Equifax’s free credit monitoring is Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018.

Today is the deadline to sign up for Equifax’s free credit monitoring service after the credit reporting agency exposed personal information of 143 million U.S. customers.

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr said he is “strongly encouraging customers to take advantage of this service to help protect against identity theft” before the Wednesday deadline.

The free credit monitoring, which lasts one year, sends an alert if any suspicious activity appears on your credit report and includes a copy of your Equifax credit report. Sign up is available at

While the credit monitoring offer is ending, Equifax’s free credit freeze has been extended to June 30. Equifax is based in Atlanta.
