Re: Authorized Users and Credit Scoring?
Yes ~ AUs are still factored into your FICO score. There was talk at one point about FICO changing that, but they backed away.

Adding someone as an AU to your CC will add it on to their Credit report, including the balance, CL, payment history, etc. so obviously you want to make sure that you add them to a card in good standing.....
