If you can’t find your account, email us email@example.com and we’ll try to add it!
Q: How do I get started?
1. Download the BillGuard app.
2. Securely connect all your accounts to track and get alerts.
3. Swipe your new charges.
✔ All Clear! That’s what in control feels like.
Q: My card issuer already warns me to fraud. Why do I need an app also?
A: Banks and card issuers only catch about ⅓ of credit card fraud - the rest is up to us! If you find a bad charge on your bills, you'll get your money back - but you need to find it first. That's where we come in.
Try signing up. If you're like most people, you'll immediately find charges you weren't aware of!
Q: How does BillGuard keep you secure?
A: BillGuard establishes a read-only secure connection to scan your transaction history.
1) Bank-level security to ensure your data is kept private and secure.
2) No one - not even you - can move money with BillGuard.
3) Passcode so that only you can open the app
✔ You're even more secure when using BillGuard to uncover suspicious charges and data breaches at places where you have shopped.
