FinTech or Financial Technology is a new financial industry that applies web and phone technology to improve financial activities. How do you use these tools to make your financial world better while still protecting yourself and your personal data? This class will spur your thinking by introducing some of the current online tools and discussing some of the benefits, like better financial outcomes for you, and pitfalls, like potential data security breaches. Together, we will consider tools in categories like budgeting (mint, YNAB), investing (Acorns, Betterment), credit monitoring (WalletHub, Credit Karma) and online payments (Venmo, Paypal). This class will give you new insights into what is currently available while keeping an eye on the vulnerabilities of these products.
