How old do I need to be to use Credit Karma?

You can sign up for Credit Karma if you’re 18 or older. If you just turned 18 and are having trouble registering, wait until a month after your birthday to give the credit bureaus time to update your information.

If you’re new to credit, read up on how to build your credit history.

If you’re under 18 or looking to protect your child’s identity, you can learn more about identity protection for minors on the Credit Karma blog.
