Tell your U.S. House representative: Help protect against identity theft

It's clear that the companies that hold massive amounts of our personal data aren't doing enough to keep it safe. And we aren't waiting for companies to get their act together.

U.S. PIRG and our national network helped win a federal law to give every citizen access to free credit report freezes in the wake of the Equifax hack. The next step is to make these freezes the default setting.

Tell your U.S. House representative to support this common-sense step to protect consumers.
