It is safe to use budget planning apps?

We can certainly understand why you’d want to use the various budgeting apps out there (such as Pocketbook). However, for security reasons, we don’t recommend using any third-party apps that require access to your PAN and secure code (if something happened to your accounts after providing your details to these apps, you could liable for any potential loss).

It’s better to be safe than sorry, but if you’d like a bit of help with your budgeting, a few of our features could help.

  • Our budget planner calculator takes into account your income and expenses to help you find out how much money you have left to spend.
  • You can create a specific savings goal in our app and track your progress as you go – we’ll even let you know how much you need to deposit over specific timeframes.
  • You can bucket your money into different accounts in our app to help you keep track of where your money is going.
