Plaid provides the technology that enables consumers to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they choose to use. Our mission is to unlock financial freedom for everyone and, one of the ways we believe we can best accomplish this mission is to provide you with control of and access to your own financial data. You can learn more about how plaid works.
When you sign up for a financial app or service, oftentimes the app or service will request access to your financial data in order to provide services to you. For example, if you use a budgeting app, the app may ask you if you want to share data from your bank account to help you track expenses in the app. This is where Plaid comes in. At your direction and with your consent, Plaid will securely share your data with the budgeting app to help you monitor and budget your finances in the app. You can learn more about why Plaid is involved, and how Plaid works.
