That depends...

If you want to buy a house with a FHA or VA home mortgage, yeah, 667 is more than sufficient for that. An auto loan or conventional mortgage lender will turn their nose up at it (or charge you a way higher interest rate than usual). Some credit card issuers are okay with it as long as your income is high enough (upper 5-figures to six-figures or higher).

Unless you have a pressing need for something, I'd try and get it higher...

Keep in mind that Random is talking about FICO scores, not the scores you get here.

Yes, it's considered a good score provided it's a true FICO score, and not Vantage score. Your goal should be to increase your score to an excellent range.  Taking the time to read the articles here and other sites will help you to understand credit.
