Credit Sesame Review

What is Credit Sesame?

Credit Sesame is based in Mountain View, CA and was founded in 2010. Credit monitoring is the process of reviewing your credit reports for accuracy and changes that may be caused by fraudulent activity.

How accurate is Credit Sesame?

Credit Sesame is as accurate as the information on your credit bureau reports. Only you can tell if the information is incorrect or incomplete.

Your credit reports can differ significantly depending on which credit bureau's data you use. So, it is a good practice to check all three credit reports. However, Credit Sesame only offers access to TransUnion's credit report.

Credit scores also vary depending on the model used, such as Vantage or FICO 8. Credit Sesame does not give you access to your FICO score. Other score models, such as VantageScore, are useful but they don't show you the score most lenders are looking at.

How often does Credit Sesame update?
