Your data and finances are safe & secure


PocketGuard is increasingly trusted for financial management with millions of transactions processed and hundreds of thousands satisfied users.


PocketGuard pulls in transactions from the trusted data aggregation providers, Finicity (MasterCard company) and Plaid.


PocketGuard uses PIN codes and biometrics as an additional security layer. It means that even if your gadget is lost/stolen, we will still have access to it, being able to defend your information.

PocketGuard security measures

We protect PocketGuard with your own 4-digit code so that only you can view your account. That means you can keep the app open without logging out. You can also enable Touch ID if you want. The best thing is that your data is always safe even in emergencies when you can’t access your device. If you need to, you can erase your information remotely using our tool.

Double layer of protection

We use trusted data aggregation partners that establish a secure connection with your card issuer. Some financial institutions even send a multi-factor authentication (MFA), such as a password or code, so that they can verify a real person. All of that makes any bank connection protected and secured.

For improved safety, we purposefully do not store any of your credit/debit card account credentials. Once your credentials are confirmed, PocketGuard is granted "read-only" access to your transaction history. It means that PocketGuard can only see descriptions and amounts of your purchases. We cannot move money to or out of your accounts, nor can we change any aspect of your accounts.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use PocketGuard without linking an account?

Sure! Feel free to start using our smart financial solution by creating your cash account manually. We won’t ask for bank credentials at that stage. You can connect bank accounts anytime later and open more automated features such as anti-fraud detection, financial data in real-time, and more

What is "read-only" access?

By connecting to PocketGuard, you're granting us permission to view your card activity through what we call "read-only" access. In other words, you're allowing us to "look" but not "touch." We cannot change your personal information in any way, and we certainly can't move money around.

It's as if we were looking at your card statement through a plexiglass box. We can see it, and that's it. If you have any concerns or questions about PocketGuard's security, please contact us at [email protected]
