What is Safer Credit Building?

Safer Credit Building is an autopay feature. It uses the money you have in your secured account to pay off your Credit Builder monthly balance in full. This can help you build your credit history.

      1. Go to Settings.
      2. Tap Account management.
      3. Under Credit Builder card, tap Safer Credit Building.

It's important to keep enough money in your secured account to cover your monthly payment. For more information, read How do I add money to my Credit Builder account?
