Credit Karma: 10 searches every month

I have recently installed Bank of Scotland app on iPad and noticed there is a random number generator called "your credit score" but then it takes you to something more meaningful: TransUnion credit report. Looking at the full TransUnion report, soft searches section, I noticed that for a reason I don't understand Credit Karma makes a soft search on me about 10 times every month. The search is recorded as "consumer credit file request". In May there were 9 requests, apparently on 3rd, 11th, 13th, 16th, 17th, 19th, 20th, 23rd and  31st of May. The same more or less in April, March, etc.
I am positive I have not requested my credit file during this time at all.
Any clues as to what is going on?
