Actively working towards a better credit score can be a lot of work. There are so many variables we need to keep our eyes on: keeping track of bills and balances, getting a good look at our spending, balancing budgets while making sure we’re making all of the payments we are obligated to. It’s a lot to be aware of all at once.

It’s fortunate we live in the day and age we do, though, because there is more help out there than ever. Aside from companies like Refresh Financial, who set you down on a direct path to better credit, there is also tons of tech geared towards building your financial security.

Here are five apps you can find in the Canadian App Store that will help you build your credit:

Mint - This app is the top rated money management app available in the Canadian app store. It’s free, and labelled an essential app by Apple itself. You can download Mint for your Apple watch as well, where you can get bill reminders, set a household budget, track your spending and more. This app has received many high profile accolades from financial professionals across the globe. We agree with Apple. This is a must-have app.

Debt Payoff Assistant - Keep track of all your debts, while you create a personalized plan to pay them off.

This way, paying off your debts becomes faster, the further along you get. Get beautiful and easy to understand visuals of your personal debt with this app, and watch as it shrinks.
