How do you "see" a credit freeze?

Dear Bogleheads,
For those of you who have frozen your credit, is there some way that's evident when you look at your credit report?
Thanks.

Mine have indicated a freeze. At least some of them.

Also when I log onto the credit agencies’ website, where I manage the freeze, it gives the current status.

Which unfortunately does not apply to Experian...

(As they don't have a credit free account like equifax or transunion)
