Two weeks ago, almost half of the US population was affected by the Equifax data breach.Because of severity of the Equifax data breach, I recommend that, anyone with a credit history should assume they were affected. Monitoring your credit is a must. So what should you do? Use these free apps.
1. Mint. Mint is an exceptional free debt management tool that can also be used as a credit monitoring service which is also free. The app interface offers you an easy to use interface that allows you to understand what's going on. The credit score provided is the Equifax Credit Score. 2. Credit Karma. This app offers free credit score tracking and you can sign up in minutes. Your score and list of reports are updated weekly. Credit Karma shows you a Vantage 3.0 credit score, which isn't the same as a FICO credit score. The app allows you to track your credit score from TransUnion and Equifax. 3. Credit.com. This app is another option to access your Experian National Equivalency Score and Vantage 3.0 credit score at no cost.
