Super simple and safe

I was hesitant to use this at first because I was worried about giving out my financial info to another place but really this service does the opposite. Instead of plugging the same credit card info everywhere and potentially having it compromised by the weakest link. You can set a card for every service and delete them as needed.

This is also great because so many subscriptions aren’t good at actually listening to you when you try to cancel. I had a gym keep billing me after I wrote them to cancel my subscription. Wish I had known about this. Now I have a new card for every “free” trial, subscription, and membership. And it’s so easy!

Stellar service, subpar app

Privacy is an absolutely fantastic service that I use religiously to manage my service subscriptions and send anonymous donations. I use its burner card feature to ensure I don't get charged for forgetting about my free trials. Everyone should use it, it's a no-brainer.

Compared to their web interface, I've noticed occasional interface hiccups when trying to change card details in the past - popups not respecting the keyboard, the interface not updating after I change the spend limit on a card, small stuff like that. Part of this is undoubtedly caused by my old SE being a bit of a design edge-case, but the service's design is excellent and these issues are all that's holding it back from being a perfect example of how to bring a service from web to iOS.

I'll continue using Privacy as long as I can either way, it's absolutely fantastic. Hopefully as time goes on, the app's stability will improve and the experience will get even better.

Total Scam, Do Not Recommended. Data Breach

This app is absolutely scam, Horrible customer service. During the sign up they don’t tell you nothing other than they need the email and password but that’s the just beginning of this. Once you verify the email then they ask you to verify phone number and after you do that then they ask you to link your bank account or debit card NO CREDIT CARD, they will then make a charge on your debit card or bank account that you verify the amount but still this is not it. Then they will ask you to take your picture with Government issued id other wise they won’t activate your account and who know what they ask after they this because I gave up after at this point. I am not going to give any random app my pictures and copy of my government id. This is a clear scam because at every step they keep playing some short of game and then their customer service is top notch that they won’t ever reply to you if you ask them the question or if they turn out to be doing illegal activities.
