How a Credit Monitor Can Help You

At Identity Guard® we know that you work hard to protect your credit. As an American, you can help to keep an eye on your credit history by reviewing up to three free credit reports every year. TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian's services provide one free credit report to consumers one time each year. Reviewing your credit report can help to keep you aware of how your credit is being used, and whether or not there is any unusual or alarming activity occurring. While using these free credit reports may be helpful, you should have a plan for protecting yourself during the remainder of the year too.

Taking efforts to monitor credit reports throughout the year is only the first line of defense against ID theft. Identity theft can happen at any time, and the sooner you are aware of errors or fraudulent charges on your credit report, the sooner you will be able to take corrective action. For this reason, you may want to consider investing in a credit monitor service.

When certain new activity is detected in your credit files, a credit monitor can help to alert you sooner by sending you notifications. This will aid you in discovering signs of potentially fraudulent credit activity, and help you to be more effective at stopping identity thieves.
