Going into 2018, we wanted to take a look back at the product launches and improvements of last year in our final Changelog of 2017.

Bank coverage

As you can tell from our announcementsaboutimprovedcoverage, we made a lot of progress adding new banks and products in 2017.

All told, you can find Plaid working with:

  • 9,700+ banks for Transactions

  • 2,300+ banks for Auth

  • 1,200+ banks for Identity

...with more to come soon. If you’re interested in coverage, we also published a full analysis of the number of banks in the US. You can find a full list of financial institutions via our docs.


We fully redesigned Link in 2017, with a focus on increasing consumer trust, improving security, and optimizing user conversions. We also added a set of customization features, including:

In the coming months, we'll be releasing our React Native SDK.

Redesigned Plaid Link. Read more about its design evolution here.


In March, we released significant improvements to our core API with new client libraries and cloneable sample code. We also redesigned our API docs and added a stateful sandbox (Note that we will be deprecating our legacy API on September 30, 2018.)

...with lots more to come in 2018! Stay tuned.
