Customer Review

Skwad is the only app that solves my problem. Other apps don't have support for my older bank, but I do get email alerts and Skwad parses them well.

Cecilia B.

Customer Review

I stopped using other apps because I was forced to re-sync my accounts EVERY SINGLE TIME I logged in. I've never had this issue with Skwad, and my transactions appear instantly.

Derek Z.

Customer Review

I use Skwad to track my personal and business transactions. I uploaded over 6000 transactions and they were processed instantly.

Tammy C.

Customer Review

I was never comfortable with sharing my bank passwords, so I used spreadsheets. Before Skwad I spent hours manually adding each transaction into my tracker. Skwad saves me hours every month.

Sonya O.

Customer Review

Before Skwad, the apps I tried all had the same connection problems with my bank. Skwad is the only app that never has issues pulling my transactions.

As a Canadian looking for a Mint alternative, Skwad is the best option I've found.

Security & privacy concerns? We've got you covered

Read the fine print. Your money may not be insured if your bank password is leaked through a third-party app.

Spend TrackingSpend Tracking

Your password isn't the only thing at risk. Finance apps and their data providers have access to more information than you think.

With third-party providers

  • Full account number
  • Routing numbers
  • Legal name and address
  • Full transaction history
  • And more...

With Skwad, you're in control

  • Transaction and balance alerts you forward to Skwad

Why Skwad?

No passwords. No ads. No compromises.

Our goal is to help you maintain your privacy and security while making better financial decisions. Sadly, the finance industry has become too comfortable with requiring you to provide your bank passwords to various apps and their third-party partners. Unlike other services, Skwad never knows your bank passwords, account and routing numbers, or private information like your address or legal name β€” just simple transaction tracking and analysis.

Skwad doesn't require your bank login, so there's no need to re-link accounts. Skwad's approach is also faster because your bank sends alerts immediately, and we process them instantly. Other apps typically refresh only after you login, or on a schedule, which can be hours or days after your purchase.

We are here to assist you on your financial journey, and we promise never to sell you any unnecessary loans or credit cards. Additionally, we will never sell your data.

Frequently asked questions

What is a Skwad scan email address?

After signing up, you'll receive a unique email address from Skwad. You can forward email receipts, spending alerts from your bank, or send attachments to this address to have them processed. See how it works.

Yes. At Skwad, we're not fans of sharing bank logins. But you can still automate your expense tracking by setting up spending alerts from your bank to Skwad.
