It is a good policy to be familiar with your credit score when buying or renting real estate or other major purchases.  Please be careful where you request it.

A lot of companies say their service is free but then ask you for a credit card. As always be very careful of where you ask and provide personal information.

While I believe in new technology, one always has to be careful placing and requesting personal information.
