It does not update your score, but it does update your stats and gives you an idea what to expect once it is reported. For example, if you paid $400 on your credit card, you will have to wait about 2 weeks after your next statement posts before the information will be reported to the credit bureaus so if you log-in and update the 2 or 3 times after the payment but before it is reported your utilization rate will be the same. If you connect your accounts, they are updated daily and CK allows you to view your current balances and utilization rates, and you will be able to know what drop in utilization rate to expect once everything is reported.
