Let the Ice Age Begin


Krebs on Security has posted a new item.

It is now free in every U.S. state to freeze and unfreeze your credit file and
that of your dependents, a process that blocks identity thieves and others
from looking at private details in your consumer credit history. If you’ve
been holding out because you’re not particularly worried about ID theft,
here’s another reason to reconsider: The credit bureaus profit from selling
copies of your file to others, so freezing your file also lets you deny these
dinosaurs a valuable revenue stream.
