CONTROL

Plaid puts you in control of your data

Your financial information belongs to you — you should control where it lives and how it's used. This belief is key to everything we do at Plaid, and our products are designed to make it a reality.<br><br>

We build tools that let you control how you share your financial information.

SECURITY

We help keep data safe, every step of the way

Our information security program is designed to meet or exceed industry standards, and we use many different controls to keep your personal information safe.

To help ensure a secure account connection, Plaid built its own multi-factor authentication (MFA) in case your financial institution doesn’t offer one. With Plaid’s MFA as a backup, almost all logins feature this extra security step.
