Top 3 Questions
Why is it important to monitor my credit?Monitoring your credit allows you to look for errors that may appear on your report, as well as unauthorized changes that may indicate fraud. With the growing threat of identity fraud, it's important to make sure that your credit is closely watched.
What will my report look like?Your credit report will contain your personal information, account history and an account summary, inquiry information, public record information, and creditor information.
What is a credit score?A credit score is a number used by lenders as an indicator of how likely you are to repay your loans. Your credit score is generated by a mathematical formula utilizing the data from your credit report. Lenders have been using credit scores as part of the lending decision for more than 30 years.

What is Identity Verification?
The Identity Verification process is an essential part of the TransUnion Interactive website because it protects your privacy by ensuring that your credit report can only be viewed by YOU.
Identity Verification confirms your identity through a series of questions based on accounts and personal information contained in your credit report. Here's how it works:
- The system presents you with a question based upon information contained in your credit report.
- You select the answer from a list of possible choices and click NEXT to continue.
- As you submit your answers, that information is compared with the information in your credit report.
- You will answer as many questions as necessary to successfully confirm your identity.
- When enough correct information about you has been confirmed, you will have access to your online credit report.
- If you need to leave the site to look up some information, you can safely log off and come back later within three days from when you began to continue your identity verification.
- If your identity cannot be confirmed online, you will be given instructions on how to continue.
Is the Identity Verification process really necessary?The protection of your security and privacy are of utmost importance to us. Identity Verification is a powerful fraud protection tool because it asks questions that can only be answered by the person who is the subject of the credit report - without it, an unauthorized party could obtain your most private credit information.
I'm selecting the correct answer(s). Why won't Identity Verification confirm my identity?Identity Verification used specific information contained in your credit report, and sometimes this information has not been recently updated or the information is inaccurate. For example, you may have recently paid off a loan that has not yet been reported to the credit reporting agency. If you are unable to pass Identity Verification, please follow the instructions provided.
What if Identity Verification asks for outdated information that I no longer have?The system may ask for information about accounts that you may have closed within the past three years. It may be necessary to review your files or contact your previous creditors to request the information. Feel free to contact the Customer Service Team - they will do their best to help confirm your identity.
What if I've tried everything, and Identity Verification still cannot confirm my identity?
Please contact the Customer Service Team. Sometimes they are able to view additional details in the data that the online Identity Verification system cannot.
A Customer Service Team member will attempt to confirm your identity by asking you questions about your credit history. Once your identity has been confirmed, the representative will immediately make your credit report available for you to view online.
What is a Security Code?
A Security Code is a unique series of letters or numbers linked to the display of your online credit report. When Identity Verification cannot confirm your identity online, it assumes that someone else is attempting to view your credit information without your authorization. To protect your security and privacy, your credit report cannot be immediately displayed.
A Security Code will be mailed to you in a security envelope to the address listed on your credit report. A Security Code is mailed only when Identity Verification cannot confirm your identity and you have made no attempt to contact the Customer Service Team for assistance.
If you do not want a Security Code mailed to you, it is important that you contact the Customer Service Team. They may be able to confirm your identity and make your credit report available for you to view online right away.
How do I use my Security Code to access my credit report online?Your credit report will be displayed after you enter your Security Code. Here are the steps:
- Return to TransUnion.com
- Log in with your username and password
- When asked, enter the Security Code that is printed in the lower right-hand corner of the letter contained in the security envelope.
Why does the Security Code have to be mailed to me?
Our security policy requires that the owner of the credit report be notified by mail when the online Identity Verification determines that there may have been an unauthorized attempt to view your credit report. Remember, when Identity Verification cannot confirm your identity online, it assumes that someone else is attempting to view your credit information without your authorization.
A partial view of the address the notification will be mailed to is displayed to you online when you receive notice that the mailing of a Security Code is scheduled.
How do I change my credit card information?After you have logged in, click the link to your Profile at the top of the screen, then select the 'Payments & Orders' tab. Select the 'Update/Change Credit Card' link to the right of the 'Product Billing Information' section. Enter the new information and select Save. The updated credit card information will now be used for all future transactions on the TransUnion Interactive Web site.
The system does not ask for a credit card type (MasterCard, Visa). Why not?The credit card number indicates the type of card that you are using.
Can I use dashes when entering my credit card number?Yes. You have the option of entering one continuous number, or using dashes/spaces to separate the number as it appears on your credit card.
How do I update my mailing address or email address?The 'My Information' tab under your Profile allows you to easily update your street address and email address. To get there, click the link to your Profile at the top of the screen, then select the 'My Information' tab.
Why would I need to change my mailing address or email address?The collection of this information occurs if you move or change your email address, you should update your information with TransUnion Interactive. Having your current information in the system allows us to contact you, if necessary, regarding your order.
Do you sell my information to companies who send me junk mail?No. TransUnion Interactive does not sell your personal information to any third party for any reason.
Why can't I change my Social Security Number?Theoretically, you shouldn't need to change your Social Security Number. If you mistyped your Social Security Number on the order form, you should start the process over from the beginning.
TransUnion Interactive, Inc. understands the confidentiality of information contained in credit reports, and we safeguard the privacy of all information you provide to this Website.
Identity Verification System (IV)
TransUnion Interactive has designed an Identity Verification System in order to protect your security and privacy. IV seeks to confirm that your personal credit report is being viewed by YOU.
When a customer requests a credit report, IV is intended to confirm the customer's identity. If the customer cannot provide the correct information, the system does not allow that person to view the report.
(Please Note: If you are currently in the identity verification process and you need help, please contact our Customer Service Team.)
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Encryption
To ensure that your credit information remains secure and confidential, TransUnion Interactive uses programs that encrypt the data you provide on the order form before transmission to TransUnion Interactive. Encryption is a way of coding the information in a file so that if it is intercepted by a third party as it travels over a network, it cannot be read. Only the person or persons that have the right type of decoding software can unscramble the message. Thus, your encrypted information can only be read by TransUnion Interactive.
