Some background might help you and your readers. Our idea with Credit Sesame was to build a site where consumers could see themselves as banks and lenders see them. It is true that we do not provide real-time balance data at this time but it is the same data that your lender would see if they pulled your credit. Also, this balance data is extremely important to correctly interpret why you credit score is what it is. Up to the minute accurate balance data is also not necessary to generate the advice and offers that we present elsewhere in the site.
In terms of advice, not everyone receives advice from Credit Sesame. If you are in pretty good shape with your finances you may not receive advice. We only provide offers if they save you money. To that extent we are not solely “retail focused” as you describe. We only want to offer you the loans and services that you qualify for and that improve your financial picture or assist you in achieving a goal such as home ownership.
If you’re interested in home ownership you should check out our new purchase goal. It helps you sort through and analyze the best mortgage options tailored to your preferences.
You also mentioned that you doubted the research then went into our recent rent v. own info-graphic. The data that went into that info-graphic came directly a highly regarded firm, Moody’s Analytics. The data itself is not available online but it is referenced here: http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2011/04/14/135380539/should-you-rent-or-buy-contd
Thanks taking a look at Credit Sesame and kicking the tires a bit. If you have further questions or need help navigating the site I can be reached at [email protected].
Thanks for stopping by.
1. Advice is more useful when using latest data, which might include significant changes in situation, if you can fecth up to date information, then probably we are one step ahead of the lenders.
2. I am not particularly worried not to receive an advice
3. I will take look at it while I am just a few months away from purchasing, If satisfied I may write another article on that, may be within next year.
4. Moody’s analytics – thanks for this info

I’ve never used Credit Sesame but I see how it could be dangerous to put your information in on a site. But I think if a hacker wants your info, they’ll take it. Credit Karma is also a good site to use for a free credit score.
Tony Wahl says
Just a comment on Credit Sesame’s security practices. Security is our number one priority. We deploy security practices that are approved by both Verisign and Experian including firewalls and 128 bit SSL encryption (same as banks). Also, in the unlikely event that someone did crack your UID and password and accessed your account they would find nothing to steal because we do not display SSN or account number information on the user areas of the site.
People who hack, don’t go in to user areas of site, they go for the user table where you keep ssn, if ssn is not the primary key for an user record in your tables, still a primary key should have been mapped with our ssn numbers. Not at all hard to steal.

Tell that to the guy that hacked my Yahoo mail… By the way, our co-founder and CTO previously worked at Charles Schwab and knows a thing or two about banking security.
Jeremy Kuehnau says
In light of current hacking issues in 2012, I think you are being overly confidant about the security of your website.
If big names like Sony and Microsoft can have their internal servers hacked and have thousands of people’s information at risk, so can Credit Sesame.
Your nonchalant attitude about people’s concerns about the security of the website is troubling at best.
I wish to talk to credit sesame personal regarding an issue with my account ,but I dnt see any contact number to do so,Can you provide one? I am tired of writing emails and waiting for response.
Never really used credit karma, and yes, no site is safe these days, Google was hacked too!
WELL, LA TE DA,,,,,,BEFORE I EVEN GOT CHECKED IN, THEY ASKED FOR MY CREDIT CARD NR, AFTER SAYING THEY WOULD NEVER ASK FOR IT….BUMMMMMS
I think you have Credit Sesame confused with some other site. We don’t require a credit card to sign up.
William Charles says
I wasn’t a big fan of credit sesame before, but now that they’ve included $50,000 in identity theft protection it’s a different kettle of fish.
Stan HardyVA says
The timeliness of the data on CreditSesame leaves much to be desired. They currently show a balance on my auto loan as it was in September 2013 (it’s Nov 2014 as I post this). And the site shows that same balance for the entire 6 month ‘trend’ graph the site provides. When I sent them an inquiry, their response included this statement – “Today, that information can be up to 2 months old, in the future it won’t be older than 30 days.”. Didn’t fill me with any confidence that they really read my input. I explicitly told them about the 6 month issue and even provided them with a screen shot. CreditKarma on the other hand, appears to be quite accurate and timely.
Wonderful review, looks like it’s very beneficial for me.
