Fraud alert?

Can someone pls tell me more info regarding fraud alerts? And do these harm your credit report and score? Thanks.

Fraud alerts do not affect your score-

They do prevent instant credit approvals and the creditor is required to verify your identity before extending credit to you.

With some CRA's a FA is the only way a INQ can be removed.
