Is TrueIdentity legit?

https://www.transunion.com/product/trueidentity-free-identity-protection

 

Looks like it's free and lets you freeze TU on/off free. Is this true? Does it require a card to signup?

 

Thanks!

Yes it is legit and completely free. Yes, you can freeze your TU account on and off. No card required to sign up. You get access to your TU report as well.

Re: Is TrueIdentity legit?

DaBadBoy does it lock it up just like a real freeze? Or is there a difference between the two?

Re: Is TrueIdentity legit?

There is a difference. "Credit Lock" appears to be a service offered by TU. This is seperate from the normal credit freeze you would put on your credit reports.

The lock feature doesn't seem to work for me at this moment :/ Though, it seems to have free ID Theft Insurance for up to $25,000, which is nice, I guess.

If lock is not working, you may have a split file, I'd call TU to fix it.

I signed up and appears to be working. To lock your TU; on the Dashboard page, scroll down to the Membership Benefits area and click "GO" next to Credit Lock and lock from there. You will receive notifications from other services you may use that it has been locked (wallet hub, credit karma) so that you know it worked.

Re: Is TrueIdentity legit?

i signed up about three days ago. Seems to be working. My Creditwise app from Cap1 alerted me that there is a security freeze on my Transunion report after I set it to locked. And yes it is free.

If you build it, they will come.

The freeze works for me as well. I was alerted there was a freeze on my TU account via one of my credit monitoring services as well.
