About a month ago I launched MoneyPhone.app, a personal finance application for monitoring your spending habits (powered by Plaid). However, I’ve been having the hardest time trying to convince users to trust my app enough to link their bank accounts. Everyone seems to think my site is some sort of Russian phishing site.
So per the advice of my friends, family, coworkers, and strangers on the internet, I’m working on redesigning my site so that it is very clear that the mechanism for linking your bank account to my application is securely enabled by Plaid, the startup behind household names Venmo, Coinbase, and Robinhood.
I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to do this yet, but I just wanted to start bookmarking links to articles about Plaid here on the blog. So without further ado, here is my collection of links/stories on Plaid:
