If you are referring to the recent hack disclosed by Equifax last week, only they can tell you if your information has been compromised 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.

As many as 8 out of 10 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.
