In the event you cancel any subscription that includes Credit Lock as a benefit you will also cease receiving Credit Lock upon cancellation.

 

Locking your TransUnion Credit Report blocks certain third parties such as potential creditors from looking at it, which may serve as a critical step in preventing an identity theft from applying for credit in your name. Credit Lock feature is free and comes with your membership account registration.

 

You acknowledge that Credit Lock will only prevent delivery of your TransUnion credit report. It will not apply to any other credit reports furnished by other credit reference agencies. Remember that while a credit lock prevents most third party access to your credit report, a third party may still access a locked credit report in certain instances that are considered a low risk for identity theft, such as official government investigations, collection activities, insurance underwriting and claims administration or when your credit report is subject to a search warrant by courts of competent jurisdiction or other relevant government agencies with such similar power.

 

Dark Web Monitoring

If your Product or Service selection includes Dark Web Monitoring which is a type of identity theft monitoring, you understand and agree that TransUnion may have to exchange certain information about you with third parties in order to monitor potential criminal selling and trading of personal information on the Internet to detect and alert you if your identity is found to be exposed or compromised.

TransUnion is not a credit repair organization, or similarly regulated organization under other applicable laws, and do not provide credit repair advice. All tips, suggestions and score calculator on the Site or TransUnion Mobile are for reference only and do not form as any professional advice from TransUnion to you. The Content or our Products/Services are provided for informational purposes only and is not intended to provide financial advice to you and you should not rely upon the Content or our Products/Services to provide  any such advice.

Credit score, score factors and score calculator do not draw conclusion or provide credit decisions for credit providers, as credit score is only one piece of information used by credit providers in their credit assessment process. Other than the credit score, credit providers shall make own judgment of their own risk acceptance level , their own internal credit score and the applicant’s demographic and financial information upon lending. A credit score is a fluid number and is calculated based upon the latest information  contained in a credit file at the time the score is requested. Since the credit information of a consumer may change from time to time, a score generated previously may not be the same  as the current one. The score factors and score calculator are analyzed based on the information currently contributed by TransUnion members (which are credit providers) at the time when the credit report was generated with certain assumptions. It serves as a reference only. It is not advisory information for your credit management and will be updated from time to time. Moreover, the  same credit applicant with the same score may be accepted by one credit provider, but rejected by another. Such decisions depend on the credit policy of the credit providers and/or other available information. We are not involved in any of such credit decision process.
