This only applies to myFICO subscription plans that include identity monitoring.
Even if your alert only mentions one small piece of information, identity thieves may have more of it. We recommend contacting our trained identity resolution specialists at 1-888-213-1459 as soon as possible. You can also submit an online help request for assistance.
Other steps to take:
- Review the alert details for the information that you can quickly change—items like passwords, usernames and credit card PINs. Update them immediately.
- Consider reviewing your credit reports for fraudulent activity or requesting a credit freeze with one of the bureaus.
- Review any other accounts that might be affected such as your bank, cell phone provider or medical benefits provider. Notify them about the exposure and ask what steps to take next.
- For the next several months, keep an eye on your financial accounts and closely review any future identity alerts.
