I want to temporarily unfreeze my Equifax account as I am applying for a*credit card...

GetHuman-dsnelson's Unfreeze Credit issue with Equifax from January 2021

Help with my Equifax issue
Top Tip from another customer
Without your Freeze PIN you will only be able to lift the freeze by writing in. If you have it, you should be able to do this process online using the link provided https://www.freeze.equifax.com/Freeze/jsp/SFF_PersonalIDInfo.jsp. The link will be a form you will submit to Equifax that will allow you to unfreeze your credit. The process should be short but make sure you fill all the correct information about yourself
The issue in GetHuman-dsnelson's own words
I want to temporarily unfreeze my Equifax account as I am applying for a*credit card. The credit card company wants to check my credit.*Please unfreeze my account for the period January * through January **, *then refreeze it. Thank you.

GetHuman-dsnelson did not yet indicate what Equifax should do to make this right.

How GetHuman-dsnelson fixed the problem
According to the website, a PIN number no longer is needed. Instead, one must establish an account online, which I did. To complete the transaction, however, I had to talk on the telephone with an individual from Consumer Care Team. The issue now seems to be resolved. I placed a temporary lift of the freeze on my account.
