Certain businesses check your credit report when you make an application for services with them. Credit card companies, lenders, utility companies, and insurance companies are just a few of the businesses that routinely check credit reports as part of their application process.
The credit bureaus keep a record of all the businesses that request your credit report. This record is listed in a section of your credit report called “inquiries.”
