    Clear score very slow to update 19th Mar 17 at 7:26 PM
    I started using clear score at the beginning of last year, basically because it was free. My wife has always used Experian. I notice that clear score is much slower to update your details after a change. Most of my accounts on there are showing they were last updated on Feb 2nd. I've opened a new joint account and a barclaycard since then. The account has been on Experian for well over a week.
    I came into this world with nothing and I've got most of it left.

    Your Clear Score report is updated from Equifax once a month.

    Therefore, it's possible for there to be a lag of up to two months.

    In reality the lag is sometimes longer than that.

    I guess that's one of the differences between a paid and free service.

    MSE's Credit Club will let you take a gander at your Experian credit report free, but it also updates once a month.
