Heralded by its parent company Intuit as the #1 most downloaded personal finance app, Mint is a great budgeting app choice for the everyday consumer.
The app provides several features to monitor and analyze your personal finances, including personalized insights, customizable budgets, and subscription monitoring. These features are helpful for tracking multiple credit cards, paying monthly bills, managing debt, and growing your net worth. With the Mint app, all your banking activity is easily integrated through your banking login. Simply enter your bank login information into the app and your financial activity will be imported into the Mint.
The standout features of Mint are customizable budgets and alerts. In the app, you can easily create a budget for yourself and all your purchases will be automatically categorized. Plus, the app creates personalized insights about your spending to help you spend smarter, save more, and pay down debt.
Additionally, Mint provides alerts about bank fees or upcoming bills due. This is a great feature, as Americans pay billions of dollars a year in overdraft and late fees. Mint can help you avoid these mistakes. Whether it’s a late payment fee, an overdraft fee, a missed payment, or a reminder to pay a bill, the app will alert you before these situations occur.
One thing to keep in mind with any budgeting app is the increased risk of your data being compromised. Mint scored extremely well in our ranking for its security features. Mint uses multi-factor authentication, multi-layer hardware and software encryption to help ensure that data entered by customers is protected.
