Unfortunately, only Equifax can tell you if your information has been compromised in their data breach, and they have made a tool available for consumers to check and see if their information was involved in the hack. A quick internet search should turn up the page for you.

Millions of people have been a victim of this hack, so to check and see if someone has been using your information you should sign up for ID Protector and check this article for helpful tips. Keeping an eye on your credit record has never been more important than it is now.
