Target Credit Monitoring Offered

Target is offering its customers free credit monitoring for 12 months. 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 free credit 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 this 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. And after sign up, Target customers will receive activation codes that must be redeemed by April 30, 2014.

Target asked its customers to "request an activation code before April 23, 2014 and then register for the offer through ProtectMyID before April 30, 2014." And after the completion of 1 year, those who register for free credit monitoring have the option to continue their memberships at their own expense.

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.
