You only need to file with one,  

They will notify the other 2 about the Freeze,  it will last for 6 months. 

After 6 months repeat the process.

I have posted something last year about how to do this will get the post and links and then place that in my profile.

when you do a freeze you creditcard offers will almost stop,  I was getting about 2 a week,  that became about 1 every 2 months.

Credit Freeze

Helpful to 0 out of 1 people

Yes.   You file with each of the bureaus individually.  Just do a search for "Credit security freeze."  There's no cost involved.

If I post the links, CreditKarma has to approve it before it posts.
