It is safe to use budget planning apps?

We understand that you might want to track your spending habits through budgeting apps, like Frollo – and that’s okay, as long as you don’t need to provide sensitive information, like your Personal Access Number (PAN), password or bank account details.

Providing personal banking info to a third-party app can be risky, and if something happens to your accounts, you could be liable for any potential loss.​

A safer way to share your Bankwest data is via Open Banking. It’s secure, and accredited third parties have to follow strict guidelines and security standards. Learn more about Open Banking.
