Keeping your financials in check and manageable is an important part of being an adult, and thanks to technology and the internet there are tons of ways to do so, including a number of banking apps. One service, called BillGuard, offers up both a web app version of their service as well as mobile apps for users on the go, only starting in February BillGuard will be going completely mobile and offering their service through the apps only. The decision to shut down the web interface for BillGuard likely didn’t come as an easy one to make, but BillGuard has stated that their mobile apps are by far the strongest between them and the web offering.
This has led them to decide that focusing their efforts on building up their app presence and experience would be the right path, although they do state that they hope to be able to build a better web app at some point in the future. That of course, does not mean that BillGuard will do so, and it’s entirely possible that they will be offer just the app from here on out. If you’ve never used BillGuard before, it’s a free service that has various extra features available for a monthly fee of $9.99, like credit monitoring and other features.
BillGuard notes that come February 1st, users will no longer be able to sign into their accounts through the web app, and instead will need to do so through the Android or iOS apps that are available. While this might not bother most users, there are sure to be some who may not have a smartphone or simply don’t wish to access this kind of information on a mobile device, for those users, looking into an alternative service may be something they need to do in the near future. BillGuard is sending these notices about the changes out to users through email, so if you actually use BillGuard there is a good chance that you may have already seen these changes. If you’re new to BillGuard and have been looking for an app that can help you track your spending and keep an eye on your finances, BillGuard is available in the Play Store.
