Hey PH! I’m really excited to share this with the community! It’s been a feature we’ve wanted to release for awhile - since our launch in fact. We believe that data portability and an open ecosystem will be table stakes for all fintech companies. You should have granular, differential control of your data. You should be able to grant access to specific functions or aspects of your financial account without wholesale sharing your account login information. You should be able to verify your identity without sharing other personal information. We ultimately intend for this API to be both read / write capable, including the ability to read transaction data, set rules programmatically, verify identity, create & manage virtual numbers, and transfer funds. That said, security is core to what we do at Privacy.com and this extends to our API. We want to empower developers to build applications on top of our API that delight users, without compromising their privacy or security. We’d greatly value your feedback as a user, developer, or information security professional. Cheers, Bo

@bolingj Very cool! I'm an avid user of the app so it's great to see you release an API. How does this compare with www.marqeta.com ?

@jaspercurry Thanks for being an early supporter Jasper! We're free to use and more focused on empowering the end user and building an open ecosystem for our users - although we envision you'll be able to do similar things. I think Marqeta is more focused on enterprises and their business model / pricing reflects that.

@bolingj This is pretty cool. Would QA and testing of cards be considered a valid use case? I remember early on this wasn't something supported, but its seems like an API could be used for just that. Thanks!
Is this available on Europe?
