Continue to Check Your Free Credit Report after a Data Breach

UW-Extension recommends that you view one credit report every four months so you can be sure that the information is up-to-date and accurate year round.

Reviewing your own report every four months is especially important given the number of data breaches occurring these past few years. Read the press release for more details and resources.

The University of Wisconsin-Extension “Check Your Free Credit Report: 2/2, 6/6, 10/10” campaign makes the process of ordering and reviewing a free credit report as easy as possible. Anyone can sign up to receive an email reminder from UW-Extension three times a year—on 2/2, 6/6, and 10/10—on the campaign’s website: fyi.uwex.edu/creditreport.
