Your credit history may show negative remarks after an identity theft event. For example, if you don't pay your credit card bill after a stream of unauthorized charges gets posted to your account, your credit score will take a hit.
We recommend locking or freezing your credit file if you are the victim of identity theft. Securing your credit with a credit freeze will limit access to your credit report and prevent identity thieves from opening new accounts in your name.
Rather than manually checking your annual credit report and trying to decode such an overwhelming amount of information, Aura experts can walk you through it, step by step.
Aura is a trusted credit monitoring service that can help you prevent fraud. We monitor and alert you to any new inquiries on your credit file across all three bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). Aura's mobile app can deliver notifications and updates if we detect suspicious activity.
