Your credit score is a very valuable asset and something you should always protect, guard and monitor regularly. I highly recommend monitoring your credit scores monthly. One of my favorite truly free programs is Credit Sesame. I use it all the time. You can join for free (no credit card ever) and you will receive updates & alerts about activity on your account regularly. Also below I recommend a few other programs where you can buy more detailed copies of your report for more further reviews.
Many of these services offer free reports as well. Remember to read the details and cancel before the trial period is up if you don’t want to continue to pay for service.
