A consumer credit report is a document containing a factual record of an individual's credit payment history. Credit grantors are permitted by law to review credit reports to objectively determine whether to grant a consumer credit. Lenders usually report consumer credit payment information to the credit bureaus. Most of the information in a consumer credit report comes directly from the companies consumers do business with.
Your Experian credit report contains four types of information: identifying information, credit information, public record information, and inquiries.
Identifying information includes:
- Your name
- Your current and previous addresses
- Your Social Security number
- Your year of birth
- Your current and previous employers
- If you're married, your spouse's name
Credit information includes credit accounts or loans you have with:
- Credit card issuers
- Other lenders
Public record information includes any information that's contained in state and county court records, like:
Inquiries indicate to other credit grantors that you have applied for new credit, which could result in additional debt. Potential lenders may view multiple recent inquiries on your credit report as a sign you may be overextending yourself.
- Tax liens
- Monetary judgments
Credit monitoring is the act of monitoring your credit report for key changes like inquiries or the opening of new accounts. Such changes to your credit report could be indications of unauthorized activity like fraud or identity theft.

A credit score is a three-digit number that lenders and creditors use to determine a consumer's credit worthiness. A higher credit score could qualify an applicant for lower interest rates and better terms on a loan or credit card, which could translate into a savings of hundreds or thousands of dollars over the life of a loan or the duration of a credit card account.
Credit scores are calculated based on the data in your credit reports. They can change over time, sometimes on a daily basis, based on activity and changes to your credit reports. That is why it's important to stay on top of your credit reports for key changes that could affect your credit scores, something credit monitoring does automatically. It's the fastest, easiest way to stay on top of your credit, other than pulling your credit report on a daily basis, something you can do as a paid member of CreditCheck Monitoring!
