Equifax is a credit bureau and is not itself in the business of credit monitoring or reporting. However, a subsidiary of the company, Trusted ID, is providing free credit reporting and monitoring services for people who were affected by the 2017 theft of millions of people's personal identifying information from Equifax's servers. As far as we can determine, Trusted ID's services are not available to consumers other than those affected by the data breach. Very little information about Trusted ID can be gleaned from its website or Equifax's publications.
