SECURITY FEATURE: Bank Level Security Assurance & Notifications

MyFincheck is protected by advanced security technology trusted on an international level. This promises you the same level of security that banks enjoy all over South Africa.

For the MyFincheck Tool to help you build a better financial future, it logs into your bank daily.

Please note that you have NOTHING to fear, the software is simply checking for transaction updates. This is so that you have relevant and updated information when looking at your Financial Dashboard.

All of this is done with a promise of internationally tested, bank-level security so that you can have PEACE OF MIND :)

Why is this important?

Bank-level security is a crucial part of any finance-based tool, as users need to know they can trust the platform with their private information. This has been part of the Fincheck promise from day one.

You can use the MyFincheck Finance Tool without being worried that your financial or log-in details will be compromised.

How does it work?

When you link one of your bank (or other) accounts, you will need to fill in those log-in details. After your accounts have been linked, the tool checks for transaction updates on your accounts every day.

This ensures that you are working with relevant information when using the MyFincheck Finance Tool to build a better financial future!

Fincheck never stores this information, but simply "hosts" your banking log-in process on its platform.

Think of it like going to fetch mail from the Post Office. Even though the Post Office has your mail, it never actually opens it up to compromise your private information. The Post Office just keeps it for you until you need it.

This is a rough explanation, but in the same way, Fincheck never actually stores and opens your financial account or private log-in information for its own browsing.

Once your account is linked, Fincheck will simply check for updates - or new mail if you think of the example - to give you the best experience in the finance tool. This is why you will receive log-in notifications.

If you have any questions or feel that your information is not protected, we would like to invite you to contact us at Here we can help you further understand the tool or resolve any other questions.

Let's cheers to your better financial future!
