    • By Pin Number:

    You received a PIN number when you initiated the freeze. If you forgot your number, you can request a reminder from Experian. You need the PIN to both temporarily and permanently remove the freeze.

    You need to state to Experian that you wish to either permanently or temporarily remove the freeze. If it will be a temporary freeze, you must tell Experian who is going to receive your credit report or during what time period the report is to be made available.
