Advertised by its parent company Intuit as the No. 1 most downloaded personal finance app, Mint is an excellent budgeting app choice for the everyday consumer.

The app provides several features to monitor and analyze your personal finances, including personalized insights, customizable budgets and subscription monitoring. These features are helpful, since tracking multiple credit cards, paying monthly bills, managing debt and growing your net worth can be overwhelming. With the Mint app, all of your banking activity is easily integrated through your bank login. Simply plug your bank login information into the app, and your financial activity will import to Mint.

The standout features of Mint are the customizable budgets and alerts.

In the app, you are easily able to create a budget for yourself, and all of your purchases will automatically categorize. On top of that, the app creates personalized insights into your spending to help you spend smarter, save more and pay down debt.

Additionally, Mint provides alerts for bank fees or upcoming bills due. This is a great feature, as Americans pay billions of dollars a year in overdraft and late fees. With Mint, you can avoid these mistakes. Whether it be a late fee, overdraft fee, missed payment or reminder to pay a bill, the app will alert users prior to these situations’ happening.

One thing to keep in mind with any budgeting app is the increased risk for your data becoming compromised. Mint scored extremely well in our rankings for its security features. Mint has multi-factor authentication, multi-layered hardware and software encryption to help ensure the data customers input is protected.
