Frequently Asked Questions

Does ClearCheckbook sync with any financial institutions?

Our main priority is keeping your data as private and secure as possible. This means we do not sync with any financial institutions or bank accounts since that would require giving us access to that data.

Another added benefit of not simply pulling your data is 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.

Does my data sync between the website and my phone or other devices?
Yes! Simply sign into your account from any computer or device with your username and password and all of your data will sync between them.
Is my data backed up?
The entire ClearCheckbook database is backed up nightly so we can conduct a full restore in the case of any catastrophie. You can manually backup your personal data at any time via our Export Transactions tool or our Automatic Backups.
How much does ClearCheckbook cost?

ClearCheckbook is free to sign up and use. We never require you to pay to continue using the site.

We do offer our ClearCheckbook Premium upgrade which gives you access to many additional tools and features. ClearCheckbook Premium costs $5 USD per month.

Can I download ClearCheckbook to my computer?
ClearCheckbook is a web based application so there is no application to download to your computer. As long as you have access to a browser and internet connection you can log in and manage your finances.
