TEMPE, Ariz., June 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The New York Times recently reported that "millions of consumers have fallen out of favor with the credit scoring gods" leaving many consumers wondering what their credit may look like. LifeLock, an industry leader in identity theft protection, has a solution for consumers that will take the surprise out of wondering about their personal credit identity - LifeLock Credit Score Manager™.
LifeLock Credit Score Manager™ utilizes a tri-bureau credit management approach, helping members maximize control of disposable income and credit reputation by monitoring all three credit bureaus daily and sending alerts when changes are made to the member's credit files. The service also provides members with monthly updates to their TransUnion credit score, and annual updates to credit scores and reports for all three credit bureaus. Members will also have anytime online access to their scores and reports for all three credit bureaus.
"Credit can oftentimes be a complicated system to understand but knowing what is on your credit report and being able to manage your credit will provide you with the ability to make informed financial decisions," said Todd Davis, Chairman and CEO of LifeLock. "With LifeLock, we work relentlessly to provide real, working solutions to consumers that want to improve their credit identity and unlike many other companies, LifeLock does not sell the data of its members."

Because of events like credit bureau errors, high balances, or too many credit inquiries that can have a negative impact on a credit history, consumers can end up paying higher interest rates or be denied employment or credit. LifeLock Credit Score Manager™ alerts members to these problems so that they know what lenders know and can make smart financial decisions.
For more than six years, LifeLock has been leading the way for consumers to help protect their identities from potential identity thieves. LifeLock Credit Score Manager™ is not identity theft protection but a solution for consumers looking to understand their credit history.
