Credit Sesame, known for providing free credit reports to consumers, has launched a free credit-monitoring service to help consumers keep an eye on their credit. Typically, credit-monitoring programs come with a monthly fee.
Through the service, users can receive alerts by email or text message when certain changes happen to their credit profiles (based on their Experian credit reports).
Additionally, Credit Sesame updated its mobile applications with access to the credit-monitoring program.
With this new service, Credit Sesame enters in a battle with Credit Karma, another company that offers free credit-monitoring.
