This is not an extensive list, and if you have been browsing our offers you may also see soft searches from Lendable, Shawbrook, Zopa, Motonova Finance, Creation Finance Service, Blue Motor Finance Limited and Likely Loans.
The searches are generated when you view the 'Offers' page of your report, they indicate that your eligibility for a credit product has been calculated. They do not indicate that you've made a credit application.
All these searches will drop off your report after one year, and will not affect your credit score in any way.
They can only be seen by you, and won't affect your credit worthiness at all.
If there's a search on your report that you are still unsure about it, you should contact the bank/lender for more information.
Alternatively, you can raise a dispute here so that Equifax can look into this for you.
