Frequently asked questions
No. The FICO® Score and other credit information we provide will never hurt your credit score. In fact, you can check as often as you like – it will never affect your score. Check back every 30 days to see a refreshed score.
We want you to check your Credit Scorecard without worry, which is why we offer it for free – even if you're not a Discover customer.
Nearly all lenders in the US, including Discover, use a FICO® Score among other information when they make their credit decisions, and they have for more than 20 years. We think that everyone should be informed about their credit so that they can avoid surprises.
We monitor thousands of sites on the Dark Web–a hidden area of the Internet where stolen Social Security numbers can be traded or sold for the purposes of identity theft and fraud. If we find your Social Security number, we’ll send you an alert so you can take action.
We also monitor your Experian credit report and notify you whenever any new credit inquiry or new account is reported. In most cases, you will probably recognize it as an account you opened. However, if you don’t recognize the account, you can contact Experian for assistance.
Credit scores are three-digit numbers that summarize the positive and negative information on your Experian credit report. They help lenders quickly assess your credit risk, and can influence everything from car loans, to mortgages to credit cards. Scores change over time, so make sure to check back every 30 days to see an updated FICO® Score. All with no harm to your credit.
Discover is serious about security. We'll never sell your information to third parties and we take steps to protect your privacy. To understand how we handle your data, please review our privacy notice.
Staying on top of your credit can be very helpful if you're concerned about a data breach. Every 30 days, you can get an updated FICO® Credit Score, which includes total number of accounts, number of inquiries and more insight on what's helping and hurting your credit.
Yes. If you place a Credit Freeze on your credit file, we can only show your Discover Credit Scorecard from the last time you accessed it before the freeze. If you decide to take the freeze off your file, you'll be able to update your Credit Scorecard again.
It’s never been easier to check your credit score, and there are numerous places to get it. It’s also never been more imperative to do this regularly, given a lighting-fast digital society where, unfortunately, mistakes happen and identity theft has become increasingly common.
Try Credit Scorecard:
Credit Scorecard is a simple and free way to check your FICO® Score—and you don't have to be a Discover customer. Better still, this isn't just another “educational” score that many companies offer, because FICO® is the score that’s used by 90% of top lenders.
Credit scores aren't impacted by checking your own scores. And checking regularly can help you catch mistakes on your credit file, or the first signs of identity theft. As far as security, you should only give your personal information to reputable companies that employ the latest security and encryption technology to protect customer data.
