Hi:

Using a budgeting app requires you to feel comfortable with your personal information being out on the web. Always be sure you are using authentic sites and that have https:// meaning the site encrypts your information. Also, check that it shows a closed padlock on the site which also indicates it is a secure site. Another additional option to look for is the use of multiple actions to sign into your account. This increases the security of your information. When there are multiple steps to take to access your information it adds road blocks to someone trying to get to your account.
A feature of an online app can be the option to categorize your expenditures as you make them giving you the ability to see total amounts spend with credit or on food for example. You can go to https://mint.com to look at the features of this app.

BillGuard from the iTunes store is free and even lets you know if there is an unauthorized charge.. Simpleplanning.net is another one to compare. When you are out there looking around you can compare the features and determine if you want to pay for some options or net. You might also check the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been registered. Mike DeWine's office as the Ohio Attorney General at the consumer protection section: http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/About-AG/Service-Divisions/Consumer-Protection can also provide information about any complaints that may have been lodged against the company.
