What Is a Security Freeze?

In this Credit 101 video from Maxine Sweet, “Max” in Experian’s Ask Experian credit advice column, you will learn what a security freeze is and important things to keep in mind when placing or lifting a freeze.

A security freeze on your credit report is designed to prevent new services or loans from being granted in your name. It’s important to understand that if you place a security freeze, it may delay the timely approval of credit applications that you initiate. It is your responsibility to unfreeze your credit report, and you will need to do this with all three credit reporting agencies.

Experian® offers the chance for you to “unfreeze” your credit report online when you know your credit is going to be checked.
