Announcing Credit Karma Insight: Daily Monitoring of All Your Accounts
24 Comments |
For more than a year, Credit Karma members have used free credit monitoring to help them keep an eye out for credit report errors and fraud. Now, we’re excited to announce the launch of truly free account monitoring at Credit Karma.
Included in our brand-new financial platform Credit Karma Insight, account monitoring sends an email alert when a bill is due, when a large purchase is made on one of your accounts, when you’ve paid an unnecessary fee, and more. Now with Credit Karma, you can rest easy and know that we’ll alert you to important updates to your credit report and financial accounts.
How does it work?
Credit Karma Insight starts monitoring your accounts as soon as you’ve connected a few of your financial accounts, like your bank accounts, credit cards, savings accounts and loans. Here’s how to get started:
1. Connect Your Accounts
Head to the Account Management page and search for your bank or lender. You can also start by connecting the accounts that Credit Karma has already identified are on your credit report.
Simply select one of the individual accounts listed in your dashboard and click on the “Connect Your Account” button on the next page.
2. Manage Your Alerts
Ok, now that you’ve connected a few accounts, tell Credit Karma what kind of alerts you’d like to receive in your Communications and Monitoring preferences. (Tip: This is also where you can double check that you’re opted into credit monitoring alerts. Just make sure the “Credit Monitoring” box is checked.)
3. Sit Back and Relax
That’s it! You’ll start getting email alerts from Credit Karma. Use those alerts to time your bill payments (or make sure that your bill payments are scheduled), double check that your paycheck was deposited, and watch out for suspicious transactions.
Ready to use Credit Karna Insight? Start monitoring your accounts today, and let us know if you have any feedback or questions at all by emailing email@example.com.
