TransUnion, the national credit reporting company that provides solutions to more than 45,000 businesses and 500 million consumers worldwide, announced today the launch of their new mobile credit monitoring application for consumers to help members manage their credit anywhere, anytime from their smartphone.
The new mobile app allows consumers to review their credit information and get alerts to help better protect them against identity theft -- at home, on the train, in the bank -- wherever and whenever they need to access their credit information.
A study* conducted by COUNTRY Financial finds that 53 percent of U.S. adults say they use online banking and investment applications regularly, and 70 percent of those users say these tools make them more diligent about tracking finances.
"People are more mobile than ever before; with TransUnion's credit monitoring App, they are connected to their credit information whenever and wherever they want it," said Julie Springer, vice president at TransUnion. "With our App, members can review their information frequently -- and a key to financial success is to stay informed and monitor progress on achieving those financial goals."
The new TransUnion Credit Monitoring mobile application is available to iPhone users who have a current TransUnion credit monitoring membership. To download the application, members should search "TransUnion" in the Apple App Store. An Android version will launch soon.
