What is Credit Block?
We at Anyfin want to help our users reach a better financial health and we know that many take expensive loans as a bad habit and often don’t think about the high interest rates and fees. The credit block is for those who want to block themselves from choosing credit options when they shop online.
How do I apply for the Credit Block?
Log in to the Anyfin app and click get started under the Credit Block. Choose the lenders you want to block yourself from and sign the power of attorney. From there, we take over, contact the lender and get back to you as soon as we have received an answer about your block. Note that it can take up to two weeks and that the creditor can refuse the power of attorney.
Which lenders can I block myself from?
Today, Credit Block works for the services Klarna, Collector and Svea Ekonomi but will in the future also include other types of lenders and credit products such as credit cards.
I have blocked myself and now want to lift my block, how do I do it?
If you want to lift your block, you need to contact the lender customer service and they will help you.
