How to Find Out If You Are Affected By Equifax Data Breach
San Diego’s Fox5 News has reported that Equifax has a “check potential impact” tool on their website where users can check to see if their information was compromised. However, the tool is not correctly displaying whether personal information was included in the data breach and is only providing users information about the TrustedID program and their “enrollment” date.
