“Travis Mills, President of identity theft recovery service LibertyID, told Digital Trends that those who’ve suffered stolen data shouldn’t count on the service as the sole means of protection. ‘Their credit monitoring is not going to make a difference or provide a solution,’ he told us. ‘You can’t be protected against data breaches, as yesterday proved.’

Further, he pointed out that ‘credit card fraud is just a fraction of the effect that ID theft can have on your life. The information that was lost in this Equifax breach is far and beyond just credit fraud.’”
