Frequently Asked Questions
A credit score is a three-digit number that summarizes the information in your credit report. This number is used by lenders other businesses thinking of extending credit to you and reflects the likelihood you will fall behind on a loan or credit obligation in the future. The higher the number, the better your credit looks to potential creditors.
A credit report is a document that has information about your credit activity and current credit situation, such as your loan payment history and the status of your accounts with lenders, credit card issuers, and other creditors. Credit reports are created by credit reporting companies (“credit bureaus”) which collect and store data that is submitted to them by your creditors or publicly available. Credit reports often contain current and past personal information used to apply for credit, including jobs you’ve held and places you’ve lived, as well as details about your credit accounts, public records about you, and lists of inquiries about your credit.
A credit bureau is a company that collects information about your credit history from creditors and public sources. It packages the information in your credit report, which it sells to businesses that are thinking of extending credit to you. The three major U.S. credit bureaus are TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax.
There are five factors used to calculate your credit score: payment history, amounts owed, credit history, credit mix, and new credit. Payment history has the highest impact on your credit score. Always try to pay your credit obligations on time. A great way to do this is to set all accounts to "auto pay" from your bank account. At the very least, set the minimum payment to be paid each month automatically.

More than 60 million consumers in the U.S. have thin files or lack meaningful credit history; however, this doesn’t mean they don’t have inaccuracies on their credit reports. If you are one of these people, Dovly would be a great way for you to check under the hood for the cause of your thin file (e.g., creditors not reporting to all 3 bureaus, tradelines not updating properly, inaccurate personal information, etc.). Since our credit report inquiries will not hurt your scores, it’s worth a shot.
