There are over 10,000 financial institutions in the US. Each one has a different way of structuring and managing their data.

For an app (e.g. Venmo) that needs to connect to their users’ bank accounts, building a digital connection to a single bank can take a lot of engineering time. Now imagine doing that 10,000 times. For most companies, it’s not feasible.

At Plaid, we work around the clock to build and maintain secure connections to the more than 10,000 US financial institutions.

Plaid lets you connect your bank account to apps and services (e.g. Venmo) to help them provide products and services to you. These apps can help you manage your money and make progress toward your goals.

Why some connections fail

Sometimes you may not be able to connect your account. The problem could be happening on our end or the bank’s end. No matter what, our goal is to restore the connection so you can use the apps and services you rely on.

Your data access

When it comes to data access, we believe that the best approach is collaboration. We’re committed to working together with banks, apps—and you!—to make connecting your bank account safe and easy.
