The evolution from data access to data control

Ben White

At Plaid, we believe that people should have control over their financial information. We built our first API to help people connect their accounts across thousands of financial services providers. Now we’re building new experiences to give people even more control over the financial data they choose to share with their favorite digital finance tools.

This diversity of use cases in digital finance creates an obligation for companies like Plaid to build infrastructure and experiences that keep people and their data safe and secure. Giving people the tools to make more active choices with their data is just one part of this evolution. 

In our latest white paper “Data controls: The next evolution in financial privacy,” we lay out our vision for the next set of technologies that can keep people safe and empowered as they move through the digital financial system.
