Credit monitoring service alert about a new inquiry

Dear Experian,

How do I find out who is checking my credit report? I have not applied for any recent credit, and a credit monitoring service has reported an Experian credit check.

Getting reports from a credit monitoring service won’t hurt your credit scores

Dear Experian,

I’ve heard that subscribing to a credit service that checks my credit daily or weekly can negatively impact my credit score. Can you tell me if having these non-agency credit monitoring agencies can put me in any jeopardy?
