Why does Equifax have my data?

Last Updated: Jun 26, 2019 01:57PM PDT

It doesn’t matter if you have or have never signed up personally to Equifax. As a Canadian with access to credit, Equifax would have collected your information from banks and other lenders. Equifax gives you a credit score based on this information, which lenders and other companies use to assess whether or not to lend you money or allow you to open a new account (such as a new cellular account). So it’s better to know what your score is—luckily Mogo can help with that! 

We also offer MogoProtect, the newest product addition to the MogoAccount that helps you protect yourself against identity fraud by monitoring your Equifax credit bureau for inquiries, which happen when your name is submitted to open a new account or complete an application for credit.
