Credit Sesame, the consumer’s credit and loan expert, launched the first true free credit monitoring service that uses data from the largest U.S. credit bureau, Experian. Available now, the new service will track a consumer’s credit activity and send alerts when important changes occur, allowing consumers to take action to protect and improve their good financial standing and credit score.
Consumers have the option of receiving credit monitoring alerts via their Credit Sesame account, phone or email. Credit monitoring will also be simultaneously released on the company’s iPhone and Android mobile apps, so consumers can benefit from credit monitoring on the go.
The addition of free credit monitoring to Credit Sesame’s existing free credit score, aggregated credit information, peer comparison data, bank-level analytics and market monitoring provides consumers with the most comprehensive free online and mobile resource to track and improve their credit standing, build knowledge and get better loan and savings opportunities. Monitoring your credit can help protect you from fraud, identity theft, and mistakes on your credit report.
One of the great things about Credit Sesame is they don’t require a credit card to sign up for their service. Many free credit monitoring services are actually just free trials and you will end up with a monthly bill if you do not cancel the service in time. You do not have that worry with Credit Sesame since they don’t even take your credit card information. I use the service myself and have been quite happy with it. They will send you offers for credit cards, but I think that is a reasonable trade off for getting free credit scores and free credit monitoring.
