Now on Android: Credit Karma Mobile!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Android app—Credit Karma Mobile! Now you Android users can get your credit score on-the-go and for free. Here’s what you get with the app:

  • Truly free credit scores. The app will automatically update your credit score on a weekly basis. You’ll also see when your next available score update is.
  • On-the-go credit monitoring. You’ll receive an alert straight to your phone whenever something important changes in your credit report. Credit monitoring can alert you to things like new accounts or changes in your personal information on your report. It’ll help you keep track of your credit and catch suspicious errors or fraud as soon as it happens.
  • Your Credit Report Card. Developed especially by our awesome engineers, the Credit Report Card shows you how you’re doing in the most important factors that influence your credit. You’ll get a letter grade for each factor so you know where to focus your credit-building attention.

The app is free to download and, of course, joining Credit Karma is free, too. Now you can get your credit score for free, from anywhere. Credit Karma Mobile is available in the Play Store.

Check out this video, featuring CK engineer Brian, who worked hard on Credit Karma Mobile for Android.

  1. Wow would love to be able to use this….. except it is neither compatible with my phone(Sidekick 4G) or my Toshiba Thrive Tablet. I am hopefully that will be remedied in future updates.

  2. Sounds like a must have !!!

  3. Right, sounds great, except that it does’t work with newer Android operating systems. You would think that with a March 8 release date it would be a little more comprehensive.

    Hi Adam,

    Sorry about that. We’re working very hard to update the app so that it’s compatible with the newer operating systems. Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

  5. the credit karma app is asking for a pin number. I don’t remember setting up a pin number, and I can’t find any place on your website to change it or find it. Please help.

    Hi Ann – You can find our app by searching for “Credit Karma” in the Google Play store. If you’re having trouble locating the app or if it’s not working for you, I’d suggest filing a ticket with our member support team for further assistance. You can do so here:

  13. This app says it’s compatible with my phone (which is a piece of trash and I wouldn’t trust having financial data on it), but not with my Nexus 7 tablet, which is much newer. Why is that?

    Hi Trey, the app isn’t compatible with Android tablets because the experience wouldn’t be optimal. Our team is working away on a tablet-optimized app, so stay tuned.

  15. I was hoping to see this in app form. Unfortunately, its not compatible with the Samsung tablets or LG phones.

  16. It also doesn’t work with Nexus 6 and/or Android 5…
