Finder App Security
How we keep your information secure
Finder takes security seriously. All of your information, which includes everything from your name and address to your financial information, is kept safe using best-practice security standards and procedures.
Finder has its own credit licence and financial services licence. The Finder app has end-to-end encryption using AES256-CBC which keeps your data secure as soon as you decide to share it with us.
We will never sell your information or use it in a way that you don't give us permission to.
We use the same security technology as the big banks. A variety of methods are used to secure our data and servers, from the bare metal servers to the application in your browser.
All communications are encrypted as soon as you land on our site using a 2048bit TLS certificate. Cookies are TLS only and all details are stored in a cryptographically strong manner.
We've gone one step further and partnered with Auth0 – provide extra layer of security to the Finder app by enabling shields that protect against different types of attacks and user access anomalies.

The Finder app is a read-only service. You can only organise and analyse your finances, with no money moved in or out of any account.
Our servers and data are located across different data centres. Manned 24/7/365 onsite security and surveillance. Biometric security access, locked cages, motion detection and light sensors.
Take control of your data
If for any reason you would like to purge all your data and details – we don't make it hard. We give you the control to remove everything yourself.
