Equifax, Reputation.com to help consumers protect online information

Friday 25 January 2013 | 10:24 AM CET

US information services provider Equifax and Reputation.com, a provider of consumer data protection, have joined forces to help consumers protect their online information.

Under the terms of the agreement, Equifax will include Reputation.com's online personal data monitoring and removal technology within its subscription-based credit monitoring and identity theft protection products for consumers. Thus, Equifax customers will be able to monitor and remove sensitive personal information from online people search directory websites that sell it or give it away.

Equifax ID Patrol and Equifax Complete Advantage subscribers will receive monitoring of personally identifiable information including addresses, phone numbers, date of birth, email addresses and more, when found online. Additionally, for Equifax Complete Premier and Family Plan members, Reputation.com can remove this sensitive information from the web at the customers' request.

In recent news, Equifax has rolled out Equifax Complete, a new suite of credit monitoring and identity theft prevention tools to help Canadians better protect their personal financial data.
