:: What is an inquiry?

An "inquiry" is a listing of the name of a credit grantor, or authorized user who has accessed your credit file. Each inquiry is posted to the credit file so you know who has obtained a copy of it. No inquiry is posted on consumer's credit file when the consumer checks own credit report.

Credit grantors post an inquiry before offering you a pre-approval credit card application. These are listed as "promotional" inquiries on your credit file because only your name and address were accessed, not your credit history information. They are NOT sent to credit grantors or businesses for reasons of credit reporting. They are listed for your informational purposes only.

Credit Factor conducted its own research and found that 21.7% of respondents use credit monitoring service
