If you would like to release any information in your credit report without your authorization, you can go to the website www.Experian.com/freeze to add a security freeze to your credit file.
What is Experian Security Freeze Service?
The Freeze Service is designed to prevent your credit report being released by a credit reporting company, unless the company has got your consent. After you put a freeze on your file, you will get the identification number or a password as the “key”. No one can see your credit report without your consent. If you want to remove the freeze or give other people the temporary authority to see your credit report, you will need to do the following process. However, the process is a little complex. You have to go to the reporting agency, providing a lot of materials as required verifying your identity and the identification number or the password. Then you have to write a statement of removing the freeze or giving temporary authority to others.
