PrivacyGuard is a truly straightforward and comprehensive credit monitoring service. For a monthly fee, you’ll receive your credit reports and credit scores from each of the three major credit bureaus: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax.
Since creditors often report to just one or two bureaus, it’s smart to monitor all three. It’s very common for the information on each report (and consequently, each credit score) to differ. You can choose from three separate plans with different services and monthly prices ranging between $9.99 and $24.99. All plans allow for a low-cost trial period of 14 days.
