Don’t Panic! What You Can Do To Protect Your Credit From The Dark Web

If you haven’t been affected by fraud yet, you likely will be soon.

Fraud found a new home, when in the 1990s the U.S. military created a network now known as the dark web to allow their agents to communicate anonymously. Today, it’s become host to the largest infestation of hackers and credit scammers on the internet.

Bolstered by this anonymous network, fraud is at an all-time high, with 171 million records exposed in 2017 alone, costing Americans more than $900 million. Even Equifax was breached in 2017, posing a true threat to your credit score.

What can you do?

There would only be one reason to panic — if you could do nothing to protect your credit. Fortunately, you can. The tried and true method for mitigating fraud damage is enrolling in a credit monitoring service before fraud finds you.

For that exact purpose, LendingTree provides a financial intelligence platform that monitors your credit, alerting you to changes in your score and breaking down the immediate response needed to save your credit score —such as shutting off cards, calling creditors, disputing errors and more.

Safety. Confidence. Free.

Getting all this data in one place can be difficult. That is why nearly 8 million Americans have trusted LendingTree to monitor their accounts for them. Better yet, each account is vetted through top-notch security measures including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Technology and a minimum 128-bit encryption to protect your data, giving you the confidence to live life worry free. It’s like the CIA, but for your credit.

The best part: Some credit monitoring services can cost hundreds of dollars a year, but credit monitoring using LendingTree is ABSOLUTELY FREE!
