Hi! I’m Erin, an automated IDShield representative here to assist you with any questions you may have.

Can I place a fraud alert or credit freeze for my child when they turn 18?

  • No. These tasks can’t be completed unless the individual requesting the alert or freeze has a credit file. Consumers don’t automatically have credit files at age 18. Credit files are created when credit is established with a creditor that reports to a credit bureau.
