Mountain View, Calif. – May 6, 2014 – Credit Sesame, a leading consumer credit and personal finance company, today extends its credit and identity protection services to Target® data breach victims completely free with no sign-up or termination deadline. The free service offering is meant to be a more permanent solution for the 70 million potential consumers whose personal information was compromised and who missed the April 30th deadline to sign up for identity protection offered by Target.

The new free identity protection service offers peace of mind for all consumers without a deadline. By signing up with Credit Sesame, consumers will automatically be covered with $50,000 of identify theft insurance and have immediate access to certified identity restoration specialists in the event that one’s identity is stolen.
In addition to identity protection, consumers also have access to their free credit score and credit monitoring for a complete 360-degree view of their personal credit and debt situation. Now all Target data breach victims can access and monitor their credit, learn about potential identity theft quickly and have access to immediate assistance, all for free. Unlike the credit monitoring offer from Target, Credit Sesame’s free offer gives consumers access to credit monitoring, credit scores and credit score tracking with no coupon codes, no deadlines and no expiration dates. It is completely free, no credit card required.
“Considering the recent security gaps and breaches, Heartbleed and all of the buzz around the NSA scandal, it’s no surprise that consumers are more worried than ever before about their personal information and credit theft,” said Adrian Nazari, CEO of Credit Sesame. “Over 18 percent of online adults have had important personal information stolen this year. Identity theft is becoming inevitable and although no company can stop it, we can provide a completely free and unparalleled service so that you can stay on top of your information and don’t have to go through the arduous process of restoring your identity alone.”
Credit Sesame is the only company that allows millions of consumers to access, monitor and manage their credit, improve their finances and protect their credit and identity, all in one place for free. The service is accessible online via desktop and mobile devices. Consumers can sign up for the service in as little as 90 seconds.
