Setting Up Your Account

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) requires you to validate your cell phone number by entering the 6-digit code sent to you via SMS message.

After your email has been verified, you may begin to navigate around your Vida account by logging into the app.

Kickstart Your Vida Account

We encourage you to enroll your credit in the app.  Once enrolled, you may access the following features:

  • Credit Score, Credit Report and Credit Monitoring.
  • A breakdown of the various factors that impact your credit score.
  • Simulate Score - Run "What If?" scenarios against your credit data.

We also encourage you to enroll all of your financial accounts, such as bank accounts, credit cards, personal loans, auto loans, mortgages and utilities.  Once enrolled, you may take advantage of the following features:

  • Single aggregated view of all financial accounts.
  • Create custom budgets and/or savings goals.
  • Analyze spending across all enrolled accounts.
  • Activate your net worth widget.

If you own property, link to that property to track the value and estimated equity (if you have not already enrolled your mortgage, now would be a good time to do so.)
