WalletHub will immediately notify you about important changes to your credit report via email. If you're worried about missing notifications, you can also enable text message alerts in the Settings section of your WalletHub account.
Learning about credit report changes as soon as possible is extremely important because it allows you to take action, if necessary, before any problems can get out of hand. For example, you might respond to one credit monitoring alert by simply confirming that you recognize the change. But another alert might warrant notifying creditors about potential fraud or putting a freeze on your credit reports.
For more information about credit monitoring and its benefits, check out this WalletHub guide.
