What is Experian?

Experian is one of the three major credit reporting agencies in the United States, along with Equifax and TransUnion. These agencies collect and maintain financial and personal information on individuals, including credit history, and make this information available to lenders, landlords, and other organizations for the purpose of evaluating creditworthiness. Experian also provides credit score and other credit information products to consumers, which can be helpful for people who want to understand their credit situation better.
