You know when you click agree to a privacy policy without reading it? Well, sometimes they're allowed to share your information, though very anonymously. WalletHub lets you check your credit score for free, and they've come to some very fun conclusions about credit score and devices used.




These are more of a correlation at the moment and don't at all indicate anything other than mere observations of the customers that use their website. But they did notice that iPhone users tend to have excellent credit, with 56% holding that score range. Only 19% have bad credit and 15% have good credit. BlackBerry users seem to have the worst ratings with 46% of those users being put into that category. Windows Phone users tend to have excellent or good credit scores as well. Perhaps because of the proliferation of devices, nearly 44% of people on Android-based phones have bad credit.


In their survey they have a lot of other fun facts that really mean absolutely nothing, but are pretty interesting observations in their own right. More data and a proper study would need to be conducted to actually conclude anything, but these are "fun facts" anyway. Take a look at their full infographic below and see if you follow the same trends.
