I checked earlier and got an enrollment date. When i look at the site https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/enroll/
it has two options Begin Enrollment and Continue Enrollment.

I'm thinking that if I only chose "Begin Enrollment", I have not given up on any potential for a class action suit or anything else. What do you think?
Sadly no, if you checked your rights are compromised. ( that's if thier terms of service don't get ruled invalid - many lawsuits pending )

see fine print ...

If you sign up through the link provided in the OP, you're not only giving up some of the rights to sue...but you're also indicating that you are a likely victim. (i.e. this creates another data pool to future hacks.)

Yep agreed ... it's a full-blown-sh@t-show.
click and they get away with it.

So to put things in perspective - merely checking if you are compromised does not 'waive your right' to arbitration, aka you are not waiving your right to sue or become part of an action.
However, if you continue with the Enroll, you are expressly waiving your right to arbitration as set out in the Terms of Use.

I hope this is how it is set up, as merely checking if you are compromised should not waive your right to arbitration/participate in an action against Equifax.

So in order to figure out if I've been impacted by this, I have to give them information that will then be susceptible to exposure in any potential future breach?

Or does this breach only apply to those who have signed up for Equifax services of some sort?

Just checked equifaxsecurity2017.com and this is their latest update (September 8):
We understand that some consumers are experiencing difficulties getting the answers and support they need through our website and call center. Ramping up the website and call center to handle the anticipated volume is ongoing and we are focused on making improvements as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this process has created.

Thus far today, we’ve made the following adjustments:

1). YOU CAN DETERMINE YOUR STATUS IMMEDIATELY
Some consumers who visited the website soon after its launch failed to receive confirmation clarifying whether or not they were potentially impacted. That issue is now resolved, and we encourage those consumers to revisit the site to receive a response that clarifies their status.

2). NO WAIVER OF RIGHTS FOR THIS CYBER SECURITY INCIDENT
In response to consumer inquiries, we have made it clear that the arbitration clause and class action waiver included in the Equifax and TrustedID Premier terms of use does not apply to this cybersecurity incident.

3). EXPANDED OUR CALL CENTER
We have tripled our call center team to over 2000 agents and continue to add agents.

Our goal is to make this process as convenient and consistent as possible. We will continue to identify steps to improve this process.

And we will continue as well to listen to your comments and suggestions.
According to number 2, you won't waive your rights for class action lawsuit.

i regret using them through the Home Depot promo for free services a few years back.. should have known better to use a shady company with shady executives selling off shares a few days after.
I am not sure shady company. There are only 3 or 4 companies like this in the world. All big corporations, lenders, banks, Telcos use these companies. Yes and there are awlays some bad apples and these executives will be investigated. Remember even Mark CUban

Forgive me if this has already been discussed or if I'm misinformed, but isn't Equifax themselves offering one year free to anyone affected?

Only for the U.S as a majority of the people affected are U.S citizens. I wouldn't touch anything right now in terms of enrolling or checking to see if you have been breached. It wouldn't do any good and just wait for the Canadian side of the news to come to decide on what to do.

Unless you have stock in the company, I would sell it because I would expect the stock to drop a bit more.

I think there is a 70 billion dollar class action lawsuit filed in the USA. That's about $400 ish dollars for each individual if all 143 million individuals were citizens of the USA. Lmao.

In the end it's not even about the 400$ (which is nothing in the grand scheme of things), but the total amount they will have to pay... and that hopefully security will be taken more seriously.
