credit monitoring

Does the MyFico credit monitoring system catch new bank accounts opened as well as credit cards opened?

Re: credit monitoring

Welcome to the forums!

ScoreWatch, among other things, will monitor and catch any added inquiries as well as new accounts on Equifax. Bank accounts won't report to your CRs if current and in good standing. So, SW won't alert you to new bank accounts. However if that bank pulled your Equifax CR in consideration of your credit then you'll get an alert. It will catch new inquiries on EQ if that report was pulled for a new CC. It'll also alert you to any new CC that reports to your EQ CR.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
