There are more than 12,000 financial institutions in the US, but they structure and manage their data in many different ways.

For an app that wants to enable users to connect their financial accounts, building a digital connection to a single financial institution can take a lot of engineering time and expertise. Now imagine doing that thousands of times. For many companies, it’s not feasible.

At Plaid, we work around the clock to build and maintain secure connections to more than 12,000 US financial institutions.

Plaid lets you connect your financial accounts to apps and services to help them provide products and services to you. These apps can help you do things like manage your money and make progress toward your financial goals.

Our goal is to restore the connection so you can use the apps and services you rely on.
