Young people now have more protection for identity theft and fraud!
Thanks to a new federal law that went into effect September 21st of 2018 parents, legal guardians, and child welfare representatives of people under 16 can request a security freeze (also called a credit freeze) on their behalf. This freeze will prevent their information from being used to open accounts, take out loans, sign up for credit cards, etc.
Children are one of the most vunurable demographics for identity theft. Because of their age it can be years or even a decade before they are made aware that their credit history has been damaged by an identity thief.
