I can’t access my account on experian. I don’t remember my password, and I have an updated phone number. My old phone number is not in use any more and it says I need it in order to reset the password.

We understand your situation and we're sorry for the inconvenience. If you have forgotten your password and do not have access to the phone number associated with your Experian account, you would typically have to go through Experian's account recovery process.

My identity was compromised by AT&T. I need to check my credit report. I would like a copy of my free credit report.

You can get a free copy of your credit report from Experian once a year, as well as from the other two major credit bureaus, Equifax and TransUnion, every 12 months through AnnualCreditReport.com. Generally, it's recommended that you review these reports annually to ensure the information is correct and to guard against identity theft. In your case, it's particularly important to monitor these reports closely due to the compromise of your identity. You will need to verify some personal information to access your reports, but it's a simple process that can provide valuable insight into your credit status.
