Kinfo uses Quovo and Tradeit to integrate with brokers.

By using leading 3rd party data aggregators, we add an extra layer of security to kinfo.

When you integrate a brokerage account, the broker provides kinfo with a token that allows very limited access to your account.  This token is separate from your brokerage credentials and is the industry standard for sharing financial data.

When authenticating you will do so in a form provided by Quovo or Tradeit, this means that credentials never pass the kinfo platform and cat ne seen nor stored.

To make sure data is transferred in a secure manner, we use 256-bit encryption for all communication.

Kinfo can only read data from your brokerage account, so we can never make changes or execute trades from your account.

Yes, since kinfo uses tokens and best practice security standards to authenticate and communicate with your broker you can see it as safe.

Noteworthy details are:

  • Credentials never pass kinfo and can´t be seen or stored
  • The connection is read-only and can´t change or execute trades on your account
  • All communication are encrypted with bank-level encryption certificates
