What to do with Unfrozen Credit
Use it! Unfrozen credit means you are free to apply for new credit cards, get approved for a mortgage, or apply for other credit products. If you found Snowcap.Me helpful or want to support our mission, shop our latest offers by clicking the button below.
Important note: With your TransUnion account, how to unfreeze your credit at TransUnion is pretty straightforward. However, unfreezing your credit only at TransUnion may cause a new credit application to fail if your Experian or Equifax credit files are still frozen. If you haven’t already done so, unfreeze your credit at Experian and Equifax to be certain a company can check your creditworthiness.
After you use your unfrozen credit, be sure to re-freeze your files so you are once again protected against major identity theft. You can use our freeze guides to re-freeze your credit.
