Chicago, Illinois
I have had no issues with the free services. the lock/unlock feature is easy to use and the process works

Appleton, Wisconsin
I signed up for the free service a couple days ago, checked my report, and saw that a card of which I have been an authorized user for years does not show up. Yet the account has been showing on the other 2 bureaus for years. Other information was incorrect. So I tried to dispute. Got error when trying to dispute online. So I called. The representative asked for information regarding that credit card of which I am an authorized user to verify my identity. Ok. I dispute my birthdate because it is incorrect, but the birthdate showing on my supposed credit report in True Identity is not even the same as the birth date the representative claimed they have on file. Unacceptable! To top it off,... Read More

No way for me to contact anyone at true Identity for support. The login support website is useless. My login in screen is locked and has been since I tried to establish the account. I've never been able to login. The service seems to be a scam to get your information.

Manitowoc, Wisconsin
Signed up for $9.95/ month monitoring yesterday. Had four charges of $9.95 applied to my checking account. Nearly impossible to get a human to resolve. Had to repeat my story three times to three different people. Still no resolve, no email confirmation of case, nothing. Cancelled service and intend on reviewing everywhere possible. Very shady, very poor service. Horrendous customer service.

De Forest, Wisconsin
I signed up for this service that was recommended when running my annual free credit report thru TransUnion. Every time I try to process a request or even sign back in, I keep getting this error "We are experiencing heavy volumes due to the Equifax breach. Please try your request again later." I can't even sign into my account!

I was trying to log into my TrueIdentity account and unlock the TransUnion credit report. TrueIdentity website has been down for existing members. No customer service number, no human contact. Unable to unlock the TransUnion Report, I'm unable to get a mortgage loan. Terrible service.

I have yet to find any customer support, there seems to be no way, phone, chat or email, to contact them to address problems. Unable to do credit lock AND unable to cancel membership. Will be contacting my States Attorney General this week to file a report.

After answering all the questions I was asked on the website, I got note that I have not submitted enough information to match my record! They give you option of _faxing_ information proving your identity...What a doosie!
