CountAbout - Online personal finance | CountAbout | Security

We keep your financial information safe

Your financial information is nobody else's business.
CountAbout uses modern encryption and account safeguards.

Security

CountAbout is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our users. Even though we only store your email address (encrypted), we use secure communications (https) with our users, we employ defense-in-depth to secure our communications with Yodlee® and we use multi-factor authentication for access to our servers.

Privacy

Your CountAbout data are just that — yours. You can export your information anytime, with a single click. And your personal information and financial data are not for sale — we won't sell your information to advertisers or anyone else. We promise.

We could give you a detailed list of all our internal security protocols but that's like leaving a sign for hackers on the front door telling them where the key is. To recap the stuff that you the user want to know:

  • CountAbout uses a widely respected third-party service, Yodlee®, to connect subscribers to their financial institutions. We DO NOT store usernames, passwords, account numbers, phone numbers or addresses associated with users' financial institutions.
  • The only thing CountAbout has that identifies you as you is your email address, which is encrypted. Outside of that we don't want to know anything about you.
  • You can only connect to CountAbout over https (secure), not http (big no-no).
  • We support 2-step authentication (and strongly encourage it) for logging into your CountAbout account.
  • CountAbout is read-only, i.e. you CANNOT pay bills or move money at your banks using CountAbout.
  • Backups. CountAbout does them constantly. When's the last time you backed up your data?
