Experian Account Temporary Security Freeze Removal
Security Freeze is important to prevent your credit, loans and other services being approved in your name without your consent. But sometimes you need to remove the freeze for the approval of your request or application for your new loans and credits.
If you have placed a security freeze on your personal credit report you have to allow a third party (i.e. creditors, banks) to access your credit report to apply for credit or some other transaction. In that case, you need to lift or remove that security freeze and you can do it online at Experian Freeze Centre.
