FICO Scores:
Get the right score for your credit goals

FICO Scores are the only credit score used by 90% of top lenders. Other credit scores can vary as much as 100 points. Knowing your FICO Scores helps you apply for loans with confidence and avoid surprises.

We provide FICO Scores based on your Experian, TransUnion and Equifax reports. When you apply for credit, lenders may use one or more of these bureaus.

With standard and industry specific versions of the FICO Score, you can get the right score for your goal, including the versions most frequently used when you apply for a mortgage, auto loan or credit card.

Credit Reports:
Check your 3-bureau credit report

We provide full credit reports, with details about your accounts and inquiries along with any collections and public records.

With our 3-bureau reports, you can view a side-by-side comparison of your information from Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. This helps you spot errors and understand score differences. Reviewing and fixing errors in your credit report may have a significant impact on your credit score.

Our regular updates help you keep your credit report accurate.

Credit Monitoring:
Stay on top of changes to your credit

We constantly monitor your credit files at Experian, TransUnion and Equifax and notify you of important changes, such as inquiries, new accounts, address changes, late payments and more.

Monitoring your credit helps you prepare for a loan, understand how credit works and detect early signs of fraud.

Detect threats to your identity

We scan and alert you to potential threats to your identity with advanced identity theft monitoring. We constantly scan thousands of websites, chat rooms and other Internet databases for the buying, selling or trading of your personal information, and alert you if your information is discovered.

We also search public records for other possible signs of identity theft like new names or addresses tied to your Social Security number.
