What is MogoProtect?

Last Updated: Apr 10, 2018 03:47PM PDT

MogoProtect helps you protect yourself against identity fraud by monitoring your Equifax credit bureau for inquiries. 

Credit inquiries are usually made by organizations like your bank, creditors, landlords, insurance providers, and cellphone companies to decide how creditworthy you are when you apply for a new account.

You’ll get a push notification on your mobile device and an email whenever a company makes an inquiry into your Equifax credit bureau, which happens when your name is submitted to open a new account or complete an application for credit. 

You’ll be guided through the steps to take if you notice an unexpected inquiry into your credit bureau. When you submit a new application for a bank account, loan, rental or mortgage etc. in Canada, you have to consent to a credit check before it is actually done, so unexpected inquiries can be one of the earliest signs that your data’s been compromised. Instead of waiting until fraudsters do lots of damage with your personal information (like getting a loan or a mortgage, opening bank accounts and more), by keeping a close watch on your Equifax credit inquiries, you can stop fraudsters in their tracks. 

Think about how hyperconnected we are in our digital world. Even if you don’t have any online activity, but simply have a credit history, your personal data is already out there and vulnerable. If your data is stolen by fraudsters, it can be used to get a loan or mortgage, open bank accounts and more.
