TransUnion Credit Protection
Join the fight against fraud. TransUnion will help protect your credit with Instant Alert emails whenever inquiries are made to your report. Internet security has come a long way, but the web is still one of the riskiest places when it comes to credit card security.
Stay safe by looking for:
- Seeing the signs. Before you enter your card number into a site, look for the “https” at the top of the page.
- Skipping storage. Consider storing your card information only in your most trusted and frequently-used sites.
- Avoiding social media add-on apps (Remember: Nothing on the web is ‘free”). Be careful with games, quizzes and other web apps asking for your credit card data. These may link you to locations lacking the security of the social media site they came from.
How Can I Protect My Credit?
When it comes to credit protection, the more layers the better. With Instant Alerts from TransUnion, we’ve added an important new layer: you. When lenders request access to your report, we send you an alert by email to confirm.
If someone tries to open a new credit card or get a car loan in your name, you’ll have the tools and the power to stop the fraud before it goes too far. We alert you, then you alert us. There are no extra fees for alerts, just extra credit protection.
