We started Bud to solve a problem: how do we make banking simple, rewarding and perfectly tailored to everyone, no matter who they are.
By making a platform, where any and all financial apps can be used together, people can customise their financial world. We aggregate banks, technology companies and other financial services so you can pick the solutions that are perfectly suited to your financial needs.
We cannot access your data and neither can anybody else. We have engineered the platform to be secure and private.
We have added an extra layer of security as standard to keep all of your valuable data safe and secure from any potential risks.
We secure our site with better than bank security to keep all of your information safe.
We will notify you about your login status. Forget to logout of Bud? No problem. We’ll automatically log you out after five inactive minutes.
If there is some strange activity on your account, we’ll notify you right away. And if it's really suspicious, we’ll freeze your account.
Security, like banking, should be personal. We are working to integrate biometrics which will give you the option to add more levels of security to your Bud account.
Bud is your personal bank manager. A website and app that connects your bank accounts and credit cards in one place which makes managing your money easier. Bud can help you budget by automatically categorising your spend so you can see exactly where your money is going. Bud connects you to additional financial products and services such as pensions, insurance, currency exchange, investments, savings, mortgages and more.
If you use online banking then you can use Bud. It is for anyone looking for a simple way to take control of their finances - all in one place. Currently, Bud is UK only so you need to have a UK bank and a UK mobile number for our authentication.
Bud links banks,credit card accounts and other services together in one place, which makes a lot of sense. Bud has built the technology to connect these services together securely. No third parties are used, so you can be sure your data is safe. Once you log in, Bud uses analytics to help you make sense of your transactional data. By understanding how you spend, you will be able to make informed decisions to help you achieve your financial goals.

Bud is free to it’s users. Bud may offer suggestions for products and services like credit cards, mortgages, pensions, investments etc which may help you save or make money. If you select a product based on our suggestion, Bud may receive a fee from the product provider.

Banks rightly encourage their internet banking customers to be careful to prevent fraud and to protect their full passwords from misuse. There is a difference between the misuse of passwords however, and using them in a secure environment to allow you to better understand your own data. Bud uses military-grade encryption, unique to you, to protect your data. The transactions and balances shown are data belonging to you, managed by the bank on your behalf. Bud empowers you to unlock your own data by helping you to see a holistic view of your financial world.
Bud never sees your credentials when you link your bank accounts, they are sent directly to your bank using bank-level security. We will only ever ask for what you bank asks for, which for most banks is only certain characters of your passwords.
Bud takes security extremely seriously. Every user has their own unique encryption key that is not known to Bud. This key is used to encrypt and decrypt all of their sensitive data. All user keys use military-grade encryption (256-bit+) to ensure the upmost privacy and security for our users.
Go to the Login screen and click on “Forgotten your details?” then click on the "Forgotten your password?" link. You will be sent an email, to your registered email address, with a link back to Bud. Click on the link, supply your email address and change your password.
