myEquifax account holders will breeze through this step-by-step guide of how to unfreeze your credit at Equifax. Don’t have an account yet? Follow this link to create a myEquifax account at Equifax so you can freeze and unfreeze your credit easily.
1. Login to your Account
Equifax uses “myEquifax” as its consumer account system to control credit freezes. The myEquifax logo looks a little different than the other Equifax branding, which is expected. Equifax is a credit bureau, not a design studio. Login to your myEquifax account here: https://my.equifax.com/membercenter/.
myEquifax may show an error when logging in. See our dedicated myEquifax Account Errors page for more information.
2. Manage a Freeze
After you sign into your myEquifax account, you will see your account dashboard. On the upper-right side of the page, there is a “Manage a freeze” link. Click the link to continue.
3. Two Step Flow
That’s it! You just unfroze your credit at Equifax! No PIN was needed. The PDF on the final step page is the only confirmation document that Equifax provides, so be sure to save it if you need it. Equifax does not send a confirmation email.
What to do with Unfrozen Credit
Use it! Unfrozen credit means you are free to apply for new credit cards, get approved for a mortgage, or apply for other credit products. If you found Snowcap.Me helpful or want to support our mission, shop our latest offers by clicking the button below.
Important note: With your myEquifax account, how to unfreeze your credit at Equifax is pretty straightforward. However, unfreezing your credit only at Equifax may cause a new credit application to fail if your Experian or TransUnion credit files are still frozen. If you haven’t already done so, unfreeze your credit at Experian and TransUnion to be certain a company can check your creditworthiness.
After you use your unfrozen credit, be sure to re-freeze your files so you are once again protected against major identity theft. You can use our freeze guides to re-freeze your credit.
