To display your account details, PocketGuard needs to view the transactions on your financial statements. That's why when you connect your account to PocketGuard, we establish a secure connection with your financial institution.
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. This means that PocketGuard can only "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.
