Security Summit: Check your Credit Report Annually - YouTube video text script

[ music ]

So, you can get a free report every year and people should take advantage of that.

And, if you are suspicious at all, what you can do is, you can put on alert on your account or you can actually put a freeze which is an even tighter restriction on your account.

So, an alert means that the credit bureau is going to have to get more information from somebody who's trying to obtain your credit report.

The freeze actually means that they will not give out a credit, somebody can't open an account in your name, until you lift that freeze.
