A security freeze is designed to prevent others from opening checking, savings, credit accounts, loans, or other services in your name without your consent. It prohibits a consumer reporting agency from releasing any information in your consumer file without your express authorization. Taking advantage of this right may delay or prevent timely approval from any user of the consumer report. You may request a temporary “lift” to the security freeze to conduct business with entities that require access to your ChexSystems consumer report.
