Equifax is no longer requiring the use of 10-digit PINs to manage a security freeze on your Equifax credit report. Instead, you can manage your security freeze:
- Online with your username and password after creating a myEquifax account. You can also check the status of your security freeze through myEquifax.
- By phone: Call us at (888) 298-0045. You'll have the option to verify your identity by providing certain personal information, and receiving a one-time PIN by text message (data charges may apply) or answering questions based on information in your Equifax credit report.
- By mail: You can download this form and follow the instructions to manage a security freeze by mail.
