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 !!!

    ILIDIO CARDOSO at 4:48 pm on March 10, 2013
  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.

  8. Not compatible with Nexus 7 and KitKat 4.4.2

    Al at 10:34 am on January 8, 2014

  11. Need Credit Karma app for my Samsung Android. Help please.

    Ann Forrest at 4:49 pm on July 17, 2014
  12. Mike

    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:


    Mike at 9:13 am on July 18, 2014
  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?

    Trey at 10:40 pm on August 15, 2014
  14. Charmaine

    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.

    Charmaine at 9:30 am on August 18, 2014
  15. I was hoping to see this in app form. Unfortunately, its not compatible with the Samsung tablets or LG phones.

    Don at 10:45 pm on September 6, 2014
  16. It also doesn’t work with Nexus 6 and/or Android 5…

    Alex at 3:24 pm on December 4, 2014
  17. Would love to use it but not compatible with android 4.4.2 tablet appearantly. Very disappointing!

    Shane at 5:23 am on January 3, 2015
  18. Does any one know when the app will be compatible with Nexus 10 tablet?

    Thank you.

    Mike at 8:38 am on January 8, 2015
  20. Any idea when your app will become available for the nexus 6? I’d love to have it.

    Nicholas at 1:26 pm on January 19, 2015

  22. So what’s up with the app?
    Used to work fine, then said my score was 641 and the site said 524..
    Now after the update it won’t let me log in and says there are no recommendations at this time.. ????

    roy at 8:51 pm on January 23, 2015
  23. when will nexus 6 be compatible with it? it’s been 3 months now.

    Mike at 9:03 am on January 26, 2015
  26. Love the app, but I’m disappointed there is not an android tablet version yet. Isn’t there one for iPad? Couldn’t you guys just let us use the phone version until an “optimized” tablet version is available?

    matt moore at 3:18 am on February 4, 2015
  27. Mike

    Hey Matt – Thanks for your question. We actually don’t have an iPad app at the moment, though the iPhone app is available for use on iPads. The good news it that we’re working hard on Android tablet support now, and should have that up and running soon. Thanks for your patience in the meanwhile!

    Mike at 9:46 am on February 4, 2015
  28. Does your app not support Android Lollipop, or is it my device? (Nexus 6)

    Kevin at 5:11 am on February 5, 2015
  29. Mike

    Hi Kevin – We’re currently working on expanding our Android tablet support. Stay tuned for new offerings! Thanks!

    Mike at 8:53 am on February 5, 2015
  30. When will the nexus 6 be supported and the nexus 6 is a phone by google by the way..

    Brandon at 1:42 pm on February 8, 2015
  31. Mike

    Hi Brandon – Thanks for pointing that out. While Android tablet support is definitely on the way, I’m not 100% sure about the Nexus 6. I’ll pass your interest along to our engineering team. Thanks!

    Mike at 10:31 am on February 9, 2015
  32. Nexus 6 is not supported yet!!! when will it be ?

    Said at 9:10 am on February 17, 2015
  33. Mike

    Thanks for the question, Said! We have no concrete timeframe, but I’ll pass along your interest. Thanks!

    Mike at 9:17 am on February 17, 2015
  34. So the app works on my nexus 7 tablet. But not my nexus 6 phone. Have you asked your support team for information yet,so you can pass it on to us?

    mike at 6:25 am on February 23, 2015
  35. Mike

    Thanks for your comment, Mike. We’re currently working on Nexus 6 support, so look out for new developments in the future. Thanks!

    Mike at 10:11 am on February 23, 2015
  36. App not compatible with my phone, only one year old, Samsung Galaxy Mega. Can you tell me when it might be? Phone was expensive. I’m not intending to replace it any time soon.

    carolyn at 7:14 pm on February 23, 2015
  37. Mike

    Thanks for your comment, Carolyn. We’re working on Android tablet/phablet support right now, so hopefully that should be coming soon! Thanks for your patience in the meanwhile.

    Mike at 9:05 am on February 24, 2015
  38. I have been using the app on my android phone for years. I just got an Android tablet. When can I expect to have the app for it.

  39. Mike

    Thanks for your question, Donald. We’re actively working on Android tablet support. While I can’t promise any specific release date, I’d recommend keeping an eye out for it because it’s coming soon. Thanks!

  40. Any update for support on the Google Nexus 6 by Motorola?

    Shane Turner at 1:46 pm on April 6, 2015
  41. Mike

    Hey Shane – Thanks for your comment. This is something we’re still working on, though I’ve definitely noticed it’s a pretty big priority for a lot of our members. As always, I’ll pass along your interest, and I’d recommend keeping an eye out in the future. Thanks for all your patience, I know it’s been a long process!

    Mike at 2:40 pm on April 7, 2015
  42. Why is the Credit Karrma app not compatible with my Samsung Tab? Kind of crazy that it wouldn’t be by now :(

    Mark M. at 8:35 am on April 12, 2015
  43. Mike

    Hey Mark – Thanks for your feedback! Android tablet support is on our current to-do list, though I can’t promise a specific time frame. We do appreciate your patience in the meanwhile!

    Mike at 10:05 am on April 13, 2015
  44. Is phablet support coming soon? I have the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which is a big phablet like the Nexus 6 (except even bigger). App says my phone is not compatible. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Abe S. at 7:22 pm on April 26, 2015

  46. Curious on any kind of update/timeline for Android 4.4.2 system.. my phone (Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3) shows not compatible but the Mega i had prior to this one operated a version of CreditKarma, is there any kind of prior application version support?


    Shane at 10:29 pm on May 18, 2015
  47. Enola Guerrero

    Hi Shane – Thanks for your interest in the app. At this time, we do not have an estimated time to when it will be available on your device. Please check back as it may be available in the future. Feel free to use the browser version on your phone and desktop! Thank you!

    Enola Guerrero at 10:25 am on May 19, 2015
  48. When do you expect support for android based tablet? Samsung Tablet user here and very disappointed that my phoneis only supported. Do you need beta testers? Love your product just looking to expand device compatibilty. Thank you.
