lol i wouldnt use this and you shouldnt either. they are transmitting highly sensitive personal data out in the open with no regard for security in their app. theyve been ousted and it will probably be fixed soon if it isnt already, but they made this exact same mistake with the iOS app. not sure you can trust these jokers. maybe thats the whole reason its called 'credit karma', doesnt say if its good karma or bad karma
Developers of two popular smartphone apps—Fandango and Credit Karma—have been caught transmitting passwords, social security numbers, birth dates, and other highly sensitive user data over the Internet without properly encrypting it first, officials with the Federal Trade Commission said.
Both apps failed to perform a crucial verification before encrypting data and sending it from a smartphone to Internet servers. The authentication failure meant that anyone with the ability to monitor the connection—say, someone on the same public Wi-Fi network, a rogue employee of a telecom or Internet service provider, or even a state-sponsored agency—could present a self-generated imposter certificate. Because the apps didn't check for counterfeit credentials—a standard step that's not technically demanding to carry out—attackers could use the imposter certificate to encrypt, decrypt, and even modify traffic transmitted by the apps.
In the case of Credit Karma, developers disabled certificate validation during the testing of its iOS app and then failed to remove the override function when releasing it into Apple's App Store, an FTC complaint alleged. Even after catching and fixing the vulnerability six months later, developers made the same override error when releasing the Android version of Credit Karma in February 2013, officials said.

Folks, better uninstall that app from your phone. Android and even iOS.

It seems CK doesnt update daily anymore.. the "Update" button doesn't show. Found the thread on their forums and it's been like this for a month or two?
Edit: Yeah, it seems as a "feature" they will only update once a week or once a month.. haven't confirmed the frequency.. oh well.. good things don't always last.

When you say it showed 700 and 750, was the 750 your transunion score? Or was it your FICO score the issuer received when they approved you? It could be the score from another agency. I know my 3 scores vary by 40-50 points at times. Also, the CreditKarma/TransUnion score is not your FICO, but a similar type number.

I recently open a new credit card and the score was different from the score shown on credit karma.
For example karma shows 700 points. When I received my new credit card somewhere near the bottom of the page it say 750 points.
How often do they update my credit score? It has been over 1 month now.

|joke888||nice app. thanks|

Awesome looking application, but I keep getting the "Unable to verify information" when trying to sign up.
I've yet to get a credit card (only use bank cards/atm cards) but I'm still able to do other "credit checking" things like my cell phone bill with Verizon, etc.

they would be exposed by now
|03-10-2013 02:02 PM|
They would need your personal credit info to be able to provide this service...I would feel pretty uncomfortable providing any of that to an app provider.
