Also, once it's setup, you can pay $4.95 to add additional EX scores, including EX2 for mortgages. (Looks like a one-time payment for one-time scores, but it's good to have another way to get EX2 on-demand.)

Damn, I may simply purchase that to encourage the behavior.  Going to have to go try the IOS app after I dismissed it seeing who the developer in particular was.

 

Hrm, that effectively excludes every other 3rd party score service; yo FICO Consumer, you need to renegotiate =/.

Re: Experian free monthly credit report app

Just downloaded the IOS app....how are you signing in?    I'm not figuring out how to sign up online without purchasing a product?

Not sure that there is an IOS version of this particular app at the moment... (@Rev?)

 

I used the Android "Experian - Free Credit Report" beta app from Experian.  (This is not the same as the "Credit Tracker" app from Experian.)

 

Looking at the IOS App Store, all I see is "Credit Tracker"...

Re: Experian free monthly credit report app

The IOS app is in the Apple store as "Experian:  Free Credit Report"    Just saw how to sign in will report back!

 

OK, signed in!  Sign up is at the beginning of the app when you open it.  Lots of verifications and PIN.   Free credit report, no score.  I like it!

Re: Experian free monthly credit report app

Thanks! I located it and have downloaded it.

Upon registering, after entering in name, SSN and so forth, I received a message stating that that there was an error processing my request. With a phone number to call. Anyone else run into this? Possibly because I already have a Credit Check Total account??

Yup, had that problem.

 

Go login with the username/password that you created in the app on https://usa.experian.com/ and finish the enrollment there. (And then ignore all the attempts to upsell you to a paid product... the "No, Show Me Only My Experian Credit Report" button DOES still get you to the full score/report product.)
