Freeze your kids credit with a Child Credit Freeze for protection. Protect their identity, their credit and their financial future with a temporary freeze.

Freeze their Credit… not telling you to freeze the kid!

Protect your child’s credit and their identity with a Child Credit Freeze.

Credit freeze for kids is a great move because it prevents any new accounts being opened up under their social security number for as long as the freeze is in place.

In a day where it’s been reported that identity theft hits a record high, it can be even scarier for a child. The reason is that no one in a family is checking on a four years credit in most usual cases. They do not have to worry about credit. This is something that is not worried about till student loans, auto loans, credits cards and usual credit requests that do not occur until 18.

This is part of your personal protection and going through the protection elements that as you are telling your story  online, you are not giving away information that can make your family or child easier targets.

Your kids are all the more vulnerable, so freeze their credit.

Going after kids, using social apps, online quizzes, these are the latest ways identity thieves are targeting you.

While no one is looking, this makes kids the perfect target for those trying to steal credit and identities. Where many people today are checking and getting updates from their Discover Card, Capital One Card, other credit cards that track credit and their banks, most are never checking their kids credit.
