Q: You mention freezing your credit through the three credit reporting agencies. Exactly how does that work? Does that only freeze new credit lines or does that also freeze established credit lines such as a credit card and/or established home equity lines? – W.M.

A: A credit freeze limits third-party access to your credit report. That means that lenders can’t see your credit report. This prevents thieves from opening a line of credit or taking out a loan in your name. But it also means you can’t do those things. If you’re applying for a job or trying to rent a home, remember that employers and landlords can’t access your credit report.

A credit freeze doesn’t stop activity on lines of credit you already have open. So you can keep using your credit cards as you normally would. But if you’re looking for a new place to live, hunting for a new job, or trying to get a loan, you’ll need to temporarily lift the freeze.
