Credit Monitoring Service Quizzle To Shut Down On November 16th – To Join Bankrate

Credit monitoring service Quizzle.com has sent out an e-mail to account holders letting them know that on November 16th, 2018 the service will be shut down permanently.

In 2015 Quizzle was acquired by Bankrate and it looks like Quizzle is shutting down to be replaced by a similar service now offered by Bankrate.

This doesn’t really change the landscape for free credit monitoring though as the Bankrate service is still powered by TransUnion. If you want to monitor all three nationwide credit bureaus then we suggest:

Same here. Tried to work with them to fix but it was just too long and unproductive. I get Equifax info from NFCU

I contacted Equifax and apparently, they want documents to see my credit report. Credit Karma cannot help in that case.

What happens to all the data they harvested? I guess it all goes to Bankrate?

They sent an email to members, quoted here last night: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/quizzle-switches-transunion-equifax-without-informing-users/#comment-662880

“all accounts and private information will be erased from existence, never to be seen again”

The email says that they’re deleting the data:

“For your protection, all accounts and private information will be erased from existence, never to be seen again.”

“We have finished harvesting your data and we will delete it permanently. But coincidently Bankrate found all of your contact info”

Not that this applies to credit monitoring, but seeing this reminded me of how often I see other sites most of us probably use as being owned by the same companies. Has there ever been a reliable list made of who owns popular travel blogs and websites (or if they are independent)?

It looks like more number of free credit reports are using data from “TransUnion”. I don’t know why ?
