Check your free credit report, monitor your credit history

Your credit report shows information about you and your history with credit. It includes your accounts, payment history and sometimes negative marks such as collections, if you have them. That information has a powerful impact on your finances — and your credit score — so it’s important to be sure the data is correct and up to date. You can dispute errors and ask for them to be removed by the credit bureau or creditor responsible for the data. (And we’ve got you covered if you’re not sure how to read your credit report.)

Checking your credit report also helps you watch for signs of identity theft or fraud. To help you stay on top of things, NerdWallet will alert you to changes on your TransUnion free credit report so you can monitor your credit efficiently.

Get your free credit score too

NerdWallet also provides your free credit score, so you can track how your actions help you build credit. Your credit dashboard explains how you’re doing on the factors that make up your credit score and personalized tips suggest ways to keep building.

Best of all: Checking your own credit score or report does not hurt your credit score.
