Privacy and Security Focused Money Management

ClearCheckbook is committed to keeping your financial data safe and secure. Since we don't directly interface with financial institutions we never ask you for bank logins or account numbers. Added security features such as 2 Factor Authentication help give an extra layer of protection to your data as well.

Since our founding, we made the choice not to connect to financial institutions to obtain your transactions. This decision was two-fold. First, it eliminates the need for you to ever give out your bank logins, account numbers or other sensitive information. Additionally, it puts you in more control of your finances when you don't rely on a service to pull them for you. This helps prevent any double charges, fraudulent purchases or incorrect amounts from slipping through the cracks.
Our commitment to your security and privacy includes the following:
  • 2 Factor Authentication available
  • No direct interfacing with financial institutions
  • We don't ask for or collect your bank logins
  • We don't ask for or collect your financial account numbers
  • 256-bit SSL Encryption always enabled

The Bill Tracker can also easily be hooked into our Reminders and Recurring Transactions system so you can be notified whenever you have upcoming bills or you can have our system automatically post the transaction to your register.
