Dear Experian,

I need to update my phone number on my credit report.

Dear MHN,

Personal identification information, such as your telephone number, is typically reported by your creditors when you apply for credit. It does not affect your creditworthiness or your credit scores. If you wish to update this information, you may do so by calling or writing to Experian using the contact information provided on your Experian credit report. You may go online and delete an incorrect number, but we must assist you to add or change a number.

For more information, see How to Dispute Credit Report Information.

Thanks for asking.
The "Ask Experian" team

The purpose of this question submission tool is to provide general education on credit reporting. The Ask Experian team cannot respond to each question individually. However, if your question is of interest to a wide audience of consumers, the Experian team may include it in a future post and may also share responses in its social media outreach. If you have a question, others likely have the same question, too. By sharing your questions and our answers, we can help others as well.

Personal credit report disputes cannot be submitted through Ask Experian. To dispute information in your personal credit report, simply follow the instructions provided with it. Your personal credit report includes appropriate contact information including a website address, toll-free telephone number and mailing address.

To submit a dispute online visit Experian's Dispute Center. If you have a current copy of your personal credit report, simply enter the report number where indicated, and follow the instructions provided. If you do not have a current personal report, Experian will provide a free copy when you submit the information requested.
