Credit Sesame Offers Target Data Breach Victims Free Identity Protection and Credit Monitoring as Retailer Provided Protection Ends

Victims of Target Data Breach Can Continue to Monitor and Protect Their Credit and Identity Even After Free Service Expires

Mountain View, Calif. – January 20, 2015 – Credit Sesame, a leading consumer credit and personal finance company, today extends its free credit and identity protection service to Target® data breach victims, reminding consumers to remain diligent and on alert for potential signs of fraud and identity theft as the retailer’s year of free credit monitoring sets to expire. With Credit Sesame’s free service, victims of the Target data breach can continue to monitor their credit and protect their identity without ever having to worry about expiration dates or deadlines.

In response to the data breach that exposed the personal information of more than 70 million Americans, Target offered one year of free credit monitoring to all shoppers who shopped in their U.S. stores during the breach over the 2013 holiday shopping season. The free credit monitoring offered by Target was made available to the public just over a year ago. As the free credit monitoring begins to expire, Credit Sesame reminds breach victims that it’s now more important than ever to remain diligent and alert to potential signs of fraud or identity theft.

“Target data breach victims have now lost their protection, but their identities are no less vulnerable,” said Adrian Nazari, CEO of Credit Sesame. “A consumer’s personal information does not disappear from cybercriminals’ view after one year. That data is still out there and it’s still accessible to criminals and identity thieves. It’s necessary for Americans to continue to monitor their credit and protect themselves long after a data breach occurs.”

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.
