Introducing Finder's chance of approval for credit cards! 💳
At Finder, we're committed to our mission of helping the world make better decisions. Part of this mission is about helping you make decisions with more confidence and less uncertainty.
A few months ago, we took the uncertainty out of the application process for personal loans and launched the ability for you to check your likelihood of approval before applying.
Now we're bringing this feature to credit cards.
You can now check how likely you are to get approved for a credit card before you apply (and without affecting your credit score). The best bit is that Finder is the first and only place in Australia where you can get this right now.
Neat right? See how it works in detail here.
Getting started is easy – just get your credit score, then compare credit cards in the Finder app and voila – that's it! We'll do the rest and show you a list of credit cards you can apply for and an indication of your likelihood of getting approved.
6 October 2020
This release is all about starting fresh. 🌻 Our newest Finder members will get a glimpse of our slick new onboarding look. We also tidied up a few rough edges in our Savings Insights and squashed a few more bugs across the app.
28 September 2020
iOS 14 is here, and we're celebrating with our very own Finder app widgets for iPhone! 🎉 Add the new Finder graphs widget to your home screen to see your cash balance or your investments at a glance. (We're also working on Android widgets.)
We've launched our very first Siri integration. 💬 Just say "Hey Siri, what are my Finder account balances?", and we'll show you a quick view of all your accounts. This is just the beginning so watch this space! 😎
Make sure you're on iOS 14 and v3.4.0 of the Finder app to start using these new iPhone widgets and chatting to Siri. Check out our full guide to updating to iOS 14 and then head to the App Store to update your app.
You might have noticed that we recently moved our search bar to the top of the dashboard to make it faster for you to compare virtually anything you want. We've also added even more product categories (we have over 100 now!) for you to compare from inside the Finder app.
Plus, we've made searching for banks when connecting a new account smarter so that you don't need to type the bank's exact name to find it and connect to it. 🤓

We'll do all the hard work and search through our product database to see if you can get a better deal. 🔍

This release is all about revamping the Dashboard and a shiny new savings insight! 😎
Now that you can connect your super and investments to the Finder app, we've built the investments graph to only display information from these connected accounts. Choose between the cash position and the investments graphs so you can keep an eye on all your finances. 👀 📈
We've also moved the search bar to the very top, so you can find the best deals even faster. Just another way to search and compare the thousands of products in Finder's database to find exactly what you need. 👌
We also have a brand new savings insight for mobile plans.📱 If you are currently on a SIM-only mobile plan, this one's for you. We'll search through our product database to see if we can find you a similar plan, only cheaper! ✨ Make sure you have a mobile plan bill under the Products and Bills tab. If it isn't there, you can manually add your bill by selecting the correct transaction from your account. 👌 All you need to do next is answer a few simple questions about your plan and we'll do the rest.

Our credit card savings have also gone through a revamp, with a completely new look and feel. ✨ Last time we released a nifty feature to choose which credit card you own.

We're getting ready for public launch with some key improvements 🎉
We made some core infrastructure upgrades so we're ready when we open up the doors to our beloved waitlist members.
No more bad pin codes! Your security is one of our highest priorities so we're saying "no" to bad pin codes and making it harder for unwanted access to your account.
Our data scientists worked some magic on our automatic bill detection! With the improved logic, the app can do a much better job at identifying your bills from your transactions. And then finding where you can save 🙂.
- Our credit score bands needed some tweaking, and that's exactly what we did.
28 February 2020
Looking for something new? We've got you sorted.
You can now start comparing right from the app without ever going to Google.
The new "Find a new product" feature allows you to search and compare across Finder's extensive database of thousands of products.

We've built them from scratch to make the experience smoother. Get swiping and read up on all of your personalised content.
