Target now offers its customers free credit monitoring and identity theft protection. After a major breach in security, that left so many credit and debit cards of its clientele vulnerable to hackers, the store is trying to compensate them via certain concessions.
Target is contrite over the huge scandal that erupted after so many of its customers’ vital info ended up in the hands of a bunch of hackers. The credit and debit cards that were now in the wrong hands meant that many financial crimes were about to occur.
In a desperate bid at face-saving, Target has given a year’s worth of monitoring and ID theft protection to its worthy clientele. The platform that Target has chosen is ProtectMyID by Experian. This tool of information service will ensure that customers can keep track of their transactions as well as avoid any future ruptures in security standards.
There is a complicated method of signing in for the free credit monitoring service. But once the preliminaries are covered it is such a solid service that it lends maximum protection to the confidential information of the customers. The deadline for entering the personal information is April 23rd, 2014.
Meanwhile, there are many who see this as a ploy by Target. They contend that it cannot adequately compensate for the massive damage to its reputation as a leading online store after the hacking incident.
The burnt child dreads the fire. And Target’s customers too have been singed by the bad experience that occurred not so long ago. They are wary of any similar hazards in the future.
