There's an error on the second page of the freeze site. There is no place to check freeze credit report. The three options deal with temporary lifting a freeze by time or party and to permanently remove a freeze. There is NO option to initiate a freeze. After trying several different numbers and trying to send an email, I had to google to find a place to leave a comment. Don't you beta test your site? I still can't sign up for a credit freeze by phone ( on hold for 10+ minutes) or by an email address. Your rating in my book is
.0000 out of a possible 10. Never called back for a survey either.

Very Difficult To Avoid Using Profanity - Because Equifax Certainly Deserves To Be Addressed In Profane Terms - But - I Shall Be As Nice As Possible. Here's My Issue: To React To The Recent Massive Hack Of Equifax Data - I Did The Preliminary Sign Up For Both Myself And My Wife For The Credit, Etc., Protection That Equifax Purports To Offer. It Happens That My Wife And I Share The Same Email Address. When We Rcvd Follow-up Emails - One To Me - And One To My Wife - That Contained Links To Set Up Credit Monitoring Accounts - I Proceeded To Set Up My Account - Following The Instructions In The Email Addressed To Me - Which Process Appears To Have Been Completed Successfully. When I Then Attempted To Follow The Same Procedures To Set Up An Account For My Wife - In Her Name - Using Her Birth Date, Etc. - I Got A Msg That Told Me That Account Had Already Been Set Up. After I Dug Into This A Bit Further - I Arrived At The Conclusion That Equifax System That Processes This Input Is Unable To Discriminate Between Two Different Individuals - With Different Names/birth Dates/ssns, Etc. - If These Individuals Happen To Share Same Email Address. I Then Called Several Different Equifax Customer Service (as Applied To Equifax - An Oxymoron) Reps - Who Indicated That Folks Who Share Same Email Address Cannot Be Registered For This Credit Monitoring Service Using Same Email Address - I.e., It's Necessary To Create An Additional Email Address (or Addresses) For Each Individual To Be Registered Because Equifax System Can Only Handle One Person/registration Per Email Address. There Was No Explanation Offered For This Bizarre Situation - Other Than "that Is The Way The Equifax System Works." In All Of The Widespread Criticism Of Equifax's Handling Of Fallout From This Hack - I Have Not Seen This Particular "only One Person Per Email Address" Issue Discussed. But - As Far As I Am Concerned - This Is Just Another Indication Of Equifax's Ineptitude & Lack Of Sophistication In Dealing With Even The Simplest Cyber Issues - And Probably Another Indicator Of Why Equifax Was Ripe For Hacking In The First Place. I Have Never Dealt With Any Entity Online That Had A System Incapable Of Discriminating Between Individuals Who Share Same Email Address. As You Surely Understand - This Is A Substantial Inconvenience For The Untold Numbers Of Folks Who Share The Same Email Address. Therefore - Strongly Suggest That Equifax Take Whatever Steps Are Necessary To Allow Folks Who Share An Email Address To Register Under That Common Email Address - Using As Discriminator Their Personal Information - For Credit Protection Offered By Equifax.

first tried to submit request for credit freeze and fraud alert on your website. completed form, read terms + conditions, agreed to tc, clicked submit: was immediately told you could not process the request at this time.
proceeded to try calling
long wait to speak to an agent; told call needed to be transfered to another agent, then a long interview about credit cards and credit limits, and who might have requested a report. I was surprised and sad

I called each of the telephone numbers listed on this website. Each one had a recorded message that the department was not open and that I could enter a dispute online. I tried to enter an online dispute and received a message that I could not do so but would have to handle the dispute by phone. Customer service is non-existent either online or by phone.
