Connecting my bank/credit cards: Is it safe?

Your bank connection is powered by our partner, a global specialist in bank data integration. Wave's partner uses best-in-class security controls, including multi-factor authentication, to protect your data.

Encryption: Communication between you and Wave is protected by 256-bit TLS encryption1. This is the same level of encryption used by the best online banking and shopping applications.

Password and account protection: Account and password data that you enter to enable automated transaction imports is stored only by Wave's bank data partner. Wave has no access to this data.

Read-only connection: When you connect your bank account, Wave is able to import transaction history via a dedicated API2 service. This API service has no capability to move money or make any withdrawals from your account.
