How to get your free credit score
The step-by-step guide to getting your free credit score with finder.
Finances can be complicated, but we aim to keep everything simple. This is why we've created this quick, simple guide to show you how to get your free credit score with finder.
Here we go.
Step 1: Create a free account
Click on the green button below to head to our free credit score page. It will open in a new tab so you won't be directed away from this page.
The page will look like this:
After you click Get started, you will need to create an account with finder.com.au. To do this, you will need to enter the following information into the space provided:
- Your email address. We will use this to send you a confirmation email, so make sure it's accurate.
- A password. Create a password that contains the following:
- 8 or more characters
- At least 1 number and 1 letter
After you've done this, click Create account.
Step 2: Confirm your email address
Once you have created your account, we will send you a confirmation email. We need you to click the orange 'Verify my email' button before you get your credit report.
If you can't see an email from us, wait a minute or two and refresh your inbox. You should also check your junk email folder.
Step 3: Verify your identity
Once you click "Verify my email" you will be taken to a screen that asks you whether you wan to use your Australian passport or state driver's licence as documentation. You will then need to enter the following information.
The next screen will prompt you to enter your Passport or Driver's Licence number. You will then be asked for information about your residential address. If you've lived there less than three years, you will be prompted to enter a previous address as well. Your address details are sent to a secure government registry, the Document Verification Service (DVS), which will match you to your official online identity. Experian will then match its details against the DVS to make sure they have the right person.
We'll then ask you why you want to know your credit score and have you confirm your details.
Step 4: Your result
After you have entered all of your information correctly, you will be taken to the results page to receive your credit score and your full credit report. You will be told what your credit score is and in which category your score sits.
