Does adding an authorized user on a credit card affect my credit score?
A family member wants to raise their credit score by being added as an authorized user on my high limit zero balance card. I trust them to not actually use the card but will their low score negatively affect my excellent score?

No, it will not affect your scores in any way, just DO NOT give them a card as that could cause problems.
