Connect your financial account using Plaid

When you choose to connect your financial accounts to an app using Plaid, you will be prompted to enter the username and password associated with those accounts. Plaid then links your accounts to the app you want to use so you can share your data.

Plaid’s technology helps keep your data safe

To help keep your data safe, we don’t share the username and password for your financial institution with your apps. Once you give us permission to share your financial data, we securely transfer it from your financial institution to the app through our application programming interface (API).

Security screen

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


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.

05

Continue building your financial life with apps powered by Plaid

Money is one of the biggest sources of stress in people’s lives. We want to make it easier for you to share your financial data with the apps you want to use. Whether you have an account at a national bank, a local bank, a credit union, an investment bank, or a digital bank, Plaid helps you get connected.

Plaid can help you manage your connections

When you connect using Plaid, you have control over who you’re sharing data with. You can create an account on my.plaid.com to manage the connections between your financial institution and apps, or delete your data from Plaid’s systems.

If you prefer, you can always contact our Consumer Support team, who can help you manage your connections or delete your data.

Manage your connections anytime

Plaid doesn’t charge you for our services

When you connect your financial accounts to an app like Venmo or Digit, the app pays us a fee to enable that connection. We don’t charge you for connecting your accounts.
