Security
We keep your data protected

gini was designed with advanced technologies that work together to constantly monitor, encrypt and update. In order to protect privacy, we do not require users to disclose their names to use the app.

It's all about you

gini only gives you the ability to see where your money is going. It’s entirely up to you how much information you want gini to track and process for you.

From the gini interface, neither you nor anyone can move or withdraw money from your gini account.

We take care of it

We take the security of your information very seriously. To protect your identity, we collect the minimum amount of personal information possible in order to create an anonymous private experience.

Security FAQs
Q
Is it safe to connect my banks?
A

We take security as top priority and understand that financial data is highly private. When you sign up to the app we don’t ask for a name, address, HKID or anything personally identifying. Where possible, we keep all sensitive data on the users device as opposed to our server – and key information like bank log-in credentials never are stored on our service. In addition to this, gini is a read-only service so nobody can move money in or out of your account (including you)

Q
Why does gini need my banking login information?
A

Our business model relies on anonymised and aggregated user data, including transactions, to deliver personalised services. This transaction information does not include any personally identifiable information.

When you provide your bank username and password, this simply establishes a secure one-way read-only connection with your bank allowing gini to download your transactions, balances, and bill due dates on your behalf, securely and automatically. This connection is between your bank and your phone, and at no point do your username or password leave your device. This connection also does not allow for any transfers as it is read-only.

Q
Where does gini store the data?
A

We are fully compliant with all data protection guidelines in Hong Kong, and this will be outlined in detail in our privacy policy which we encourage all users to read closely. All personally identifiable information collected, including your username and password, are stored on your own device only and at no point touch our server. Storing the data on your own device rather than a service is a key component of our service being able to guarantee anonymity and security.
