“Are popular budgeting apps like Mint actually safe to use?” by Karoun Chahinian, Chatelaine

Chatelaine quotes Toronto lawyer, Alex Cameron, in an article about the potential risks of using third-party budgeting apps that require access to your banking information.

In the case that someone with malicious intent gains access to an account, it’s often due to a mistake made by the user, according to Alex Cameron, a privacy and cybersecurity lawyer at the Toronto-based law firm Fasken.

“The user having a weak password, using the same password across multiple services, clicking on phishing emails and giving up their password that way — those are more common types of risks,” says Cameron, adding that consumers should be doing their due diligence to ensure their information remains secure.
