Credit Sesame’s main focus is credit monitoring. The Platinum Protection plan offers some identity theft protection, covering up to $1 million in fees to restore your identity if you’re ever a victim of identity theft. But Credit Sesame is less comprehensive in terms of protecting your identity before its stolen.
ASecureLife’s recommendation: If you want a service that helps you take proactive steps to protect both your identity and your credit, we recommend these more thorough identity theft protection services.
Signing up for an account with Credit Sesame is super easy. You enter a bit about yourself—name, address, the last four digits of your Social Security number—choose a password, and instantly get access to your credit standing.
We also like that all three paid Credit Sesame subscriptions give you a monthly credit score and credit reports from all three bureaus: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.
Plus, the Pro Credit and Platinum Protection plans include daily credit monitoring from all three credit bureaus. Both these perks make checking your credit and keeping an eye on your finances relatively easy.
