- It cost money to use
- Awesome app. I like how it combines a few credit report sources into one place. YES, you may have to pay after your free trial ends but that's what happens after free trials expire, you pay! I will mention a few glitches. Doesn't save info very well and I had to make a few signups before it would actually work but other than that, nice job on this.
- I ha ve enter my Email and password more than 10 times why haven been connected ?
- Seems to be working pretty fine but the interface doesn't look too professional .
- I would like to reestablish my credit

What is your credit score and what is a good credit score?Read More
Your credit score uses data on how you’ve handled debt in the past to predict your likelihood of repaying a future loan or credit card balance. The higher your score, the better you look to potential creditors. Your score affects whether you get approved for credit and sometimes the interest rate or other charges you’ll pay.

The most commonly used credit scoring models range from 300 to 850. Each lender sets its own standards for what constitutes a good credit score. But, in general, scores fall along the following lines:
1. 300-629: Bad credit
2. 630-689: Fair or “average” credit
3. 690-719: Good credit
4. 720 and up: Excellent credit
What goes into your credit score and what doesn’t?
Two companies dominate credit scoring in the U.S.: FICO and VantageScore. They calculate scores from information in your credit reports, which list your credit activity as compiled by the three major credit reporting agencies: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. If you have a good VantageScore, you’re likely to have a good FICO Score, because both consider the same factors:
1. Payment history: your record of on-time payments and any “derogatory” marks, such as late payments, accounts sent to collections or judgments against you.
2. Credit utilization: balances you owe and how much of your available credit you’re using.
3. Age of credit history: how long you’ve been borrowing money.
4. Applications: whether you’ve applied for a lot of credit recently.
Type of credit: how many and what kinds of credit accounts you have, such as credit cards, installment debt (such as mortgage and car loans) or a mix. A credit score doesn’t consider your income, savings or job security. That’s why lenders also may consider what you owe alongside what you earn and assets you have accumulated.
Why does your credit score matter?
With a low score, you may still be able to get credit, but it will come with higher interest rates or with specific conditions, such as depositing money to get a secured credit card. You also may have to pay more for car insurance or put down deposits on utilities. Landlords might use your score to decide whether they want you as a tenant. But as you add points to your score, you’ll have access to more credit products — and pay less to use them. And borrowers with scores above 750 or so have many options, including the ability to qualify for 0% financing on cars and 0% interest credit cards.
How can you build your credit score?
The two biggest factors in your score are payment history and credit utilization (how much of your available credit you’re using). That’s why they come first in this list of ways to boost your credit:
1. Pay all your bills, not just credit cards, on time. You don’t want late payments or worse, a debt collection or legal judgment against you, on your credit reports.
2. Keep the balance on each credit card at 30% of your available credit or lower.
3. Keep accounts open and active if possible; that will help your length of payment history and credit utilization.
4. Avoid opening too many new accounts at once; new accounts lower your average account age._
5. Check your credit report and dispute any errors you find.
It pays to monitor your score over time. Always check the same score — otherwise, it’s like trying to monitor your weight on different scales — and use the methods outlined above to build whichever score you track.And like weight, your score may fluctuate. As long as you keep it in a healthy range, those variations won’t have a major impact on your financial well-being.
What if I don’t have a credit score?
If you’ve never had a credit card or loan, you probably won’t have a score. And people who haven’t used credit in years can become “credit invisible.”
