How long does it take for a security freeze to be lifted?

A credit reporting agency must temporarily lift a security freeze under reasonable circumstances within fifteen (15) minutes if the request is received via the electronic method selected by the agency or by phone during normal business hours. If the request is made by mail, the credit reporting agency has three (3) business days after receiving the consumers request to lift the freeze.
