The site shows everyone as impacted. You can enter a random name and SSN and it will show as impacted. Your 4-year old does not have a credit report, that is unless you committed fraud and used his SSN for something. He has nothing to worry about.

i'm just trying to prevent anybody from opening up a credit line on my 4 year old. I did search for the whole family and 3 out of 7 adults are impacted

I'd recommend Metamucil.

Get your kids actual credit report. Don't bother with equifaxes poorly secured offer.
If there's something on your kids credit that you don't recognize, do something about

They'll all appreciate that, by entering their information, you may have just waived their rights to sue Equifax in the future...

Which is another reason I don't see Equifax getting away with that tactic...anyone can enter anything and opt someone else out.

You only agree to the arbitration terms if you sign up for their unsecure security servic.

Equifax is now claiming that doesn't apply to the security breach, apparently due to the huge backlash on social media. Somehow I'm not sure I want to believe them, I'm just checking Credit Karma regularly.
