Is Plaid really safe? I can’t manually add my bank account, I’m asked to provide my bank log in info which I don’t want to do. Does Coinbase use it too?

I don’t have a problem trusting Plaid. They’re widely used


Thank you. I understand they are widely used and also backed by major companies, but providing your bank log in user name and password to any platforms is a cyber security no no (especially since they store the password and read past transactions). Data breaches can happen to anyone, I would hate to lose all my crypto at once and also my bank account funds. There has to be alternative ways to add bank accounts manually with acct # and routing.

On my current project we are working directly for the ceo and coo. I tend to think that whenever you present something to someone at this level, it needs to look good. Even if it’s an early draft things need to be professional. I don’t want to lose their attention or our credibility by showing bad stuff. My teammates on the other hand think it’s ok to show rough work because we are “co-creating” and they are normal people too.... who do you side with
