I am old school and keep everything in a spreadsheet on an encrypted laptop. Aren't people worried about security with something link Mint or Learnvest having all the information about every account you have? I get that my bank has to know some things but I use different banks checking, savings and my mortgage on purpose to keep them apart. Are people really comfortable with some app knowing everything?
Honestly, I've gotten more security breach notifications from Bank of America than I have from Mint
Bringing back an old post because it's pretty relevant!
I can only speak for Mint (I would assume Learnvest and other apps are the same or similar), but I feel very secure using it. The security is at the same level as bank websites (or better, given all of the hacks on banks lately). Whatmore, it's view only. You can't transfer money around based from Mint directly... you have to go to your bank's website. Mint also doesn't have any account numbers, just your usernames and passwords. If you change one password somewhere, you'll have to update it at Mint to be able to view things there. Basically, I find Mint secure... to my knowledge it hasn't been hacked while I've been a member (wasn't affected by Heartbleed I don't think), and even if it was, there's not a lot of information they can pull from there.
