What is CRED?

It is an app that allows you to earn points which are called ‘CRED Points’ on paying bills through your credit card or debit card. You can redeem these points for various kinds of premium products and services provided. It also allows you to identify your spending limits, alerts on due dates, and more.

This is created to reward the most creditworthy customers of India, said Kunal Shah. It also provides you with your Experian/Crif score along with your credit score.

Is CRED App SAFE?

It is created by a person who has large experience in dealing with lots of customers on Freecharge. So it is assured that the app is completely safe. If you are concerned about your security, you can register in this via another mail as well. You can easily make bill payments, but if in case some issue happens stay in touch with their customer support executive.
