What is the best credit monitoring service?
By: John Kiernan, Personal Finance Editor
WalletHub provides free 24/7 monitoring of your TransUnion credit report and will notify you immediately whenever there is an important change. WalletHub even allows you to set up SMS text alerts for a faster response time, which most credit monitoring services don’t do. Plus, WalletHub is the only site with free credit scores and reports that are updated on a daily basis, so you can make decisions based on the latest info.
It’s important to do your due diligence before choosing a monitoring service, though. And for your convenience, we compared some of the most popular options in a handful of key categories.
