    so developers can develop an app that can log in and merge all the data from your accounts into one convenient place. than you can consolidate the balances from your chequing accounts, savings accounts, visa card, etc...and manage them from one interface like ClearCheckbook


    amirite?

    have something like what?

    my bank doesnt have read only accounts, and only an idiot would provide any other site/app with that information. and without having access to the account, the info in whatever site you're saying is "like that" would not be current.

    It's still very possible that a startup company could get hacked. I trust my bank more than I trust some relatively new web 2.0 website.

    I agree with the original post... having read-only accounts would be awesome.

    that's why ClearCheckbook.com doesn't fuck with any bank stuff. I don't want to get blamed if something goes wrong and a hundred bucks goes missing from their account or some shit.

    This is a good idea.

    My mom is afraid to log into her bank account unless she's at home with a wired connection (plugs in her laptop). With a read-only account, that wouldn't be as much of an issue.

    What would also be nice would be the ability to drop the old one and create a new read-only from your full-access account.

    we would DEF need the support of the bank on this one. there's nothing any 3rd party place could do to make it secure enough
