    Do you believe using a site like this is safe?

    Do you guys add your investment portfolios?

    I am thinking that I will add my individual bank accounts/credit cards to Mint, but leave my UBS account separate. Something about it just seems risky to me?

    It is very beautiful and great though, I love it. Part of me wants to add the investments, and "property" to create an impressive net worth so that I can admire the grand total and abhor further spending.

    I've checked it out, but being a student, I don't really have much use as I don't have a buttload of assets to keep track of.

    I sometimes get them to text my negative net worth to my phone every once in a while, too.

    I started to sign up for Mint, but when it started asking for all my account numbers and the passwords- I freaked and quit it immediately. I read the whole privacy reassurance spiel which sounded legit, but I was still uneasy.

    Maybe it is safe, it just made me nervous.

    I've checked it out, but being a student, I don't really have much use as I don't have a buttload of assets to keep track of.

    One of the the main things I was interested in it for, was to have multiple bank accounts setup/budgeted on one site.

    For example, one checking account that auto pays bills, and only has a bit more then necessary to cover these bills. Another checking account, "my main one", that transfers X dollars a month to the bill bank account and is used for other purchases. Also have a business checking account, to keep my eBay $$ separated from personal cash. Savings accounts, etc. etc.

    I do and definitely seems safe. I find it pretty useful but really only log in a few times a week... wish it was better for setting payment reminders and things like that.

    Never heard of yodlee before - how does it compare to mint?

    how do they compare to just using quicken?

    I was interested in Mint, and my wife was really against it, for the security reasons. I find it encouraging that greg and will are using these sites.

    Imagine your online banking website, but with all your accounts in one place and budgeting tools in one.

    Mint takes all this information to put spending in to their respective categories-- and is surprisingly accurate at it. Only a few have to be changed each month. It let's you see balances in all of your account, and it updates it every day so that having multiple accounts no longer is a huge pain in the ass.

    Reviving an old thread. Want to see if Mint/Yodlee is still a popular choice.

    I love Mint. It's a great service and I have yet to find something that works better. Good iPhone app too.
