Review the best credit report services

Overview

Privacy Guard is a credit monitoring service tailored to prevent fraud, help consumers understand their credit report and score, and help them recover if they have been a victim of identity theft. In addition to providing all 3 bureau credit reports and scores, Privacy Guard offers daily credit monitoring, monthly credit score tracking, and a toll free 24/7 support hotline. 

Sign Up and Pricing

Signing up with Privacy Guard is a simple, fast process. Fill out your personal details and credit card information all on one page and get started.

Currently, Privacy Guard is offering a 14-day trial of their services for $1 which you can cancel at any time within that two-week period in order to avoid paying the monthly fee.

Privacy Guard only offers one package which costs $15 per month and offers a few different services. They provide your credit report and credit score from all 3 bureaus (Experian, Equifax, TransUnion), and will give you your additional CreditXpert® credit score, which reflects the strength of your overall credit. Though lenders do not use CreditXpert® scores for considering you for a loan, having an additional aspect of understanding is beneficial.

Credit Monitoring and Fraud Protection

Privacy guard offers 3 bureau credit monitoring, and score tracking and alerts, allowing you to track the movement of your credit score, alerting you to any possible security threats. Privacy guard also allows you to set alerts for milestones in your credit such as an increase in your credit score by tracking your Experian ScoreX Plus score on a monthly basis. As an added security feature, Privacy Guard offers Identity Fraud Scanning which alerts you to any credit inquiries placed on your account. 

Customer Support

Privacy guard’s customer support is comprised of a toll-free 24/7 hotline and email support service. They also offer a detailed FAQ page through their website that will answer many of your questions or concerns and save you time.
