Credit Parent takes the headache out of freezing your child's credit report. With our Easy Freeze service, all you have to do is complete one simple form and we'll take care of the rest. Freezing your child's credit is the best way to prevent identity thieves from opening financial accounts in your child's name, and it'll take 15 minutes using our Easy Freeze service.
How it Works
Step 1. Get Access
Purchase one Easy Freeze for each child you want to protect. After checkout, we will send you a confirmation email containing a unique link to our encrypted application form, which securely collects the required information.
Step 2. Prepare your Documents
Collect physical or electronic copies of the following documents:
- Social Security Cards for parent and child
- Child's Birth Certificate
- Parent's Drivers License (or other official Government ID)
- A recent account statement from a bank, insurance, or utility
Step 3. Complete the Online Form
Click on the unique link in your order confirmation email to start your form. If you have physical copies of your documents, it's easiest to do this on your smart phone or tablet so you can use the camera. If you don’t have all the documents on hand, don’t worry, you can save and return later.
When you submit the form, we'll confirm we've received it via email, and send you a follow-up email in 1-2 business days confirming Credit Parent has approved and sent your Freeze applications, and deleted your file from our systems.
CONGRATS! YOU'RE DONE! 🎉🎉🎉
Each credit bureau will mail you a confirmation letter containing a unique PIN code and instructions on how to unfreeze the file within 1-2 weeks. Store these letters/PIN codes in a safe place, such as a safe deposit box or wherever you store important documents.
