What is Schufa?
This is a private company which collects information about users and their financial life as a credit rating agency. The information is also shared in cases such as applying for a phone subscription or setting up direct debits with certain German businesses.
Schufa gives every person a certain score based on information shared by all the banks and companies that learn this from payment history.
