Experian Launches Experian Go Credit Knowledge Base

Experian has launched a new program designed to help the credit invisible establish a credit history. The program, dubbed Experian Go, has already helped 15,000 consumers establish a credit history since October’s pilot.

How Experian Go Works

The Experian Go program is designed with the credit invisible in mind. Experian Go lets users build their credit history on their terms, using Experian’s industry-leading knowledge base and credit experts.

New users receive a free Experian membership upon signing up for the program, including FICO credit score access, their Experian credit report, and more. Joining the program requires a government-issued ID, a Social Security Number, and a photograph (a selfie will do).

Once registered, Experian Go provides users with personalized recommendations to set them on the best path for their credit goals. These recommendations include adding current utility, phone, and streaming accounts through the Experian Boost program. Experian Go may also provide information about becoming an authorized user on someone else’s credit card or credit card recommendations for those entirely new to credit.

Successful Pilot

The Experian Go program’s launch followed on from a successful pilot launch late last year. That short pilot saw 15,000 consumers establish credit and become viable to lenders since October 2021. While Experian states the program is not an overnight fix for establishing a credit history, it does provide the resources, expertise, and advice consumers need to take their first steps up the credit ladder.
