See the same type of information that lenders see when requesting your credit.
Your Credit Report captures financial information that lenders use to determine your creditworthiness. This includes the type of credit accounts, current balances, payment history, and any derogatory items you may have. You will also get a summary of your account totals, total debt, and personal information.

Information in your Credit Report is frequently being added, updated or deleted. Account information is typically updated every month, and each account may be updated on different days. If a public record is filed — a civil judgment, tax lien, or bankruptcy — a record of the filing may take a month or more to appear.

Credit Report basics
What is a Credit Report?
Your personal Credit Report contains details about your identity and displays certain financial behaviors. This set of data is sometimes also referred to as a credit file or a credit history. Experian collects and organizes data from creditors, lenders and public records.
Why is my Credit Report important?
Your Credit Report provides information for lenders and others about how you make payments, your current and past credit mix, and whether your accounts are (or have been) in good standing. This information can help determine the terms you’re offered when you seek out new or more credit.
How often is my Credit Report updated?
In general, creditors send information to the credit reporting agencies on a monthly basis, but the day of the month that the organization sends its updates varies. Different creditors submit information throughout the month, which then shows on your Credit Report.
