What are some reasons people cancel Equifax?

Despite being one of the largest companies in the world, Equifax has gone through its fair share of troubles and breaches in recent years, which has led to some serious damage to its reputation. This alone is one of the reasons many people have chosen to leave Equifax and cancel their accounts.

More reasons to cancel include that their service is simply no longer needed. No non-essential service is needed for a lifetime, and when the lifetime of that service starts winding down, it’s better to cut the cord and cancel before you waste any more money on it.

On top of that, sometimes the cost of an Equifax subscription is too high to justify the value. And when a customer doesn’t feel like they’re getting their money’s worth, that customer usually leaves. In this case, leaving would mean simply cancelling their account and closing down their membership.
