Exciting to see this great tool for the consumers expanding into other areas!
@y_molodtsov Thanks Yury!
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.
@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!
Brilliant idea - been huge fan of the product from day 1 and excited to see what comes out of the API
@15greenberg 🙏Thanks Daniel!
I've been waiting on this for so long, so excited to see this finally happen!
@hustlinhack Thanks Kyle! :)
this is awesome! congrats :)
@cwrichardkim Thanks Richard!
This seems so interesting! Many possibilities to come from this.
@growwithlogan Thank you Logan!
Is this available on Europe?
@m1guelpf Unfortunately not yet :(
Love this and love Privacy.com!
This is very interesting - congratulations on the launch. I'm assuming the API is relevant only for existing customers, ie I'm a Privacy.com user, I go to App/Site X and auth my individual account, App/Site X can do cool stuff with my account and account data. Is this right?
Can you share some of the kinds of use cases you hope to see developers build?
Hi Boling - I work for a security company that often builds out integrations with tools - have you seen any companies use this as part of their security stack?
