Connect your financial account using Plaid

When you choose to connect one of your financial accounts with Plaid, you will be prompted to enter the username and password associated with the account. Plaid then links your account to the app you want to use.

Plaid works behind the scenes to keep you safe

To help keep you safe, we never share your bank username and password with your apps. Once you give your permission, your apps get the data they need from our application programming interface (API), which uses end-to-end encryption.

Security screen

The combination of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) help keep your personal information safe end-to-end.


Plaid uses secure cloud infrastructure technologies to enable you to connect quickly and safely.


Security researchers and financial institutions regularly audit Plaid’s API and security controls.
