Identity theft safeguarding
No, you cannot place a freeze on your Experian business credit report.
If you're concerned that your business information is being used inappropriately, Experian recommends the following actions:
1) Monitor your business credit report.
Experian's Business Credit Advantage subscription service provides unlimited access to your business credit report for 1-year. Experian will provide daily monitoring of your business credit profile and alert you of any changes, including those changes that may indicate potential fraud. You will also receive a new suite of identity alerts to help monitor your business information across the Internet and dark web. Visit either of our self-service sites www.smartBusinessReports.com
to sign-up instantly to our Business Credit Advantage monitoring program.
2) Place a Fraud Alert statement on your business credit report.
A Fraud Alert statement is most effective for those who believe they are victims of business fraud. A Fraud Alert is different than a Credit Freeze, a Credit Freeze is available for consumer credit only. A Fraud Alert statement can be viewed by lending and financial institutions when evaluating your business credit report. These statements advise the lender to contact the business owner or principal prior to extending new lines of credit or business trade lines. Visit our education page
to learn how to place a Fraud Alert statement on your business credit profile.
