credit karma mobile iphone app

Today we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our long-awaited app for iPhone®: Credit Karma Mobile. It’s the first and only app to provide truly free credit scores and free credit monitoring. This new app:

  • Provides your truly free updated credit score whenever you log in.
  • Shows your Credit Report Card, which will help you understand the factors influencing your credit score.
  • Displays how your credit score has changed over time.
  • Lists your individual credit accounts, including your reported account balances.
  • Gives you on-the-go credit monitoring, which will send an alert to your phone when something important changes in your credit report, like a new account or new hard inquiry.

And best of all, it’s absolutely free, just like the rest of Credit Karma. Now you can get your credit score for free, from anywhere. Credit Karma Mobile is available now in the App Store. For you Android users, never fear! We have an Android app as well.

  10. I would love to try the beta version.

  11. People…this is a FREE service that we’re getting a premium service. Sure they get advertising $ but that’s so they fan keep an awesome service free. If their taking time to make an android app better than all the others, that’s to be respected and not pushed. With analytics on a web site says most are iOS users, that’s the market that gets attention first….simple business practice. It will come and I’m almost sure be great. Perfection doesn’t happen over night.

  12. I think Credit Karma is fooling people by telling them the Android app is on the way while in reality they are just gauging interest for the app. What they fail to realize is most people are too lazy to express interest and will just search for it on Google Play and of they don’t find it, will never search for it again or find a competitive service.

    I work in the mobile world and I can tell you guys a 100% that an application such as this would take no more than 6 months in dev/qa time.

  13. @ Luke – the reason why the Android app is taking longer is probably not because most users are iOS users. In fact, Android has a much bigger market share overall. Apple apps come quicker because developers only have to test apps for one family of devices. With Android, developers must test on a multitude of varied devices, which makes the testing period much much longer. You’re right that users should respect that longer time, but I don’t think you’re right about web analytics here. iOS market doesn’t get more attention or even primacy; it’s just a closed environment which is simpler and faster for developers to navigate.

  14. Need beta testers?
    You have my email!

    Hey Todd, I can assure you that we’re working hard on our Android app- we’ve even posted a sneak-peek photo of the app on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Thanks for your patience as we take the time to make the app as amazing as possible.

    Jenna at 12:31 pm on January 28, 2013
  16. Its been almost a year since credit karma promised to make an android version which in my thoughts its a scam to keep everyone thinking of such thing to be made for android user’s.

  17. I used to love this app until it stopped working about a month ago it shows the same balance for three months and one of my accounts don’t even show up at all oh well back to the drawing board

    Hi Kimbet – Thanks for the comment. We currently don’t offer a Windows Phone app, but you can always access the full site with your mobile browser. Look out for new additions in the future as well!

  29. Is your credit monitoring still active? I am not seeing any alerts any more.

    Jay at 12:44 pm on March 26, 2015
  30. Jenna

    Hi Jay,

    Yes, we’re still offering credit monitoring. Have you checked your communications and monitoring preferences here? https://www.creditkarma.com/myprofile/preferences

    If everything looks fine there and you’re still not receiving any alerts, please email support@creditkarma.com and we’d love to look at your account for you. Thanks!

    Jenna at 8:19 am on March 27, 2015
  31. Thanks. Where can I see my alerts? I can’t find them anywhere on the site or mobile app.

    Jay at 3:16 pm on March 27, 2015
  32. Jenna

    Hi Jay,

    My mistake, it looks like we’ve removed alerts, although you can find more information about score changes here (https://www.creditkarma.com/myfinances/scores/transunion) and here (https://www.creditkarma.com/myfinances/scores/equifax). Sorry for the confusion. If you’d like us to bring back alerts, please email comments@creditkarma.com and we’d love to pass your feedback along to our product team. Thanks!
