Keep your personal information more secure when applying for a lease

How does using this solution benefit a renter?

Keep personal information private — keep sensitive information such as your Social Security, birth date and bank account numbers private by verifying your identity directly with TransUnion – a trusted source for consumer data online. Your sensitive information never has to be seen by your potential landlord.

Faster application processing — give your consent and your potential landlord will have everything required to complete the screening process within minutes.

“Soft” hit — don’t let your apartment search negatively affect your credit report and credit score. SmartMove lets you be the one to initiate the request, which won’t impact your credit in a negative way.

Take Charge of your Personal Information | Protect your Credit Report, Credit Score & Credit History

Information Enterprises has partnered with TransUnion to give renters the ability to apply for a lease while protecting their personal information private

How the System Protects your Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information

  1. When you use the SmartMove® platform through TenantScreeningUSA.com, you provide your Social Security number directly to TransUnion—not an unknown landlord or leasing agent.  Your identity is then verified.
  2. The system then provides the landlord with a leasing recommendation, credit report and criminal history.
  3. The landlord DOES NOT see sensitive information such as your Social Security number, birth date or bank account numbers.
    1. This way, your sensitive information remains safe with TransUnion, a secure, trusted credit reporting company that safely houses credit data for approximately 500 million people worldwide
    2. Plus, your credit score is not impacted when you use SmartMove®. Unlike when a landlord or lender retrieves your credit report, SmartMove® lets you be the one to initiate the request for your own file to be sent so it’s a ‘soft hit’ on your history, which doesn’t impact your credit negatively.

How it works from a Renter’s Perspective

  • Unlike traditional screening methods, SmartMove® is all online.
    • You’ll receive an email request from the landlord with a link to TSUSA.MySmartMove.com.
    • Simply create a secure account in seconds
      • Then review the landlord’s request and choose whether or not to grant consent.
    • The landlord receives notification instantly, helping to speed up the rental application process while keeping your personally identifiable information more secure.
