    There all sorts of ways people can acquire your personal information without you knowing about it.

    It’s not dangerous, just make sure it’s a legit site. I like to use CreditSecure that is apart of AmericanExpress.

    http://www.truecredit.com allows you to check your credit daily for $ 14.95 a month.

    You need to be more specific…dangerous for identity theft, that depends, do you use a wireless internet connection? People can get your information any number of ways. I personally don’t think it is any more or less dangerous that anything else people do with their personal information.

    It does not affect your credit score when you check your report yourself (it is a “soft hit” so it doesn’t show up as an inquiry).

    use http://www.annualcreditreport.com. It is the only website you can get your credit report from for free, from all 3 bureaus.

    About as dangerous as drinking bottled water.

    Millions of people do it all the time and almost no one ever has a problem.
