How to Prevent Unwanted Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Report

It's important to be wary of who you give permission to access your credit report, as this can result in unwanted inquiries. When you're shopping for something like a car, only allow the dealership you plan to purchase from to check your credit – avoid applying with multiple lenders in quick succession as this can make you appear desperate and put off potential lenders.

Additionally, it's worth using a credit monitoring service which can keep track of any unauthorized activities occurring on your credit report and alert you if necessary. This will help you take action quickly and dispute any incorrect inquiries as swiftly as possible.
