Secured cards report to credit bureaus (if that's what you mean) but prepaid cards do not. If you have a regular prepaid card it won't affect anything to drop it. If it's secured, it could impact your credit history length of time. I wouldn't drop a secured card unless I had already applied for and received each of the unsecured cards it was my goal to obtain. Then my good payment history with those cards would negate the negative impact to my length of credit history, and I wouldn't be applying any more for a while any way.
