Last day to sign up for Target's free credit monitoring

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - If you think your personal information was compromised during the Target security breach, Wednesday is your last day to sign up for free credit monitoring.

Target is offering a year of free credit monitoring to anyone affected by the breach late last year. The personal and financial information from as many as 110 million shoppers was compromised in the security breach during the holiday shopping season.

You'll receive:

-A copy of your credit report
-Daily credit monitoring
-Identity theft insurance where available
-Access to assistance from a fraud resolution agent
The offer applies to all Target guests who shopped in U.S. stores. It's not clear yet how many people have signed up for the service.

According to Fox’s Consumer Reports expert, credit monitoring offered by Target only monitors your credit report from Experian, not the other two major credit reporting agencies. It also only protects you from new accounts that are opened, not accounts you already have that may have been used fraudulently.

3 TIPS


The company offered the following advice regarding personal identification safety:

1. Never share information with anyone over the phone, email or text, even if they claim to be someone you know or do business with. Instead, ask for a call-back number.

2. Delete texts immediately from numbers or names you don’t recognize.


3. Be wary of emails that ask for money or send you to suspicious websites. Don’t click links within emails you don’t recognize.
