Data Privacy at Mono
As an Open Finance infrastructure company, data privacy is deeply important to us, and we are committed to providing you and your customers with more ways to stay in control of your data.
To show you how we optimize for the safety and protection of your data on Mono, we have created some useful resources on this. You can share this with your users to educate and assure them about the security of our financial data-sharing process.
Building finance management apps with Open Banking technology
Last year, we started a 7-part video series on Open Banking and practical ways it can benefit businesses and individual users.
We recently published the sixth video in the Mono Open Banking series, where we shared how Open Banking technology can be applied to digital finance management tools to build personalized money experiences for users or businesses.
Mono Ghana Network Mixer
In January, we hosted our first network mixer in Accra, Ghana. This event gave our whole team the opportunity to meet the businesses and developers who use Mono, and the tech community in the city. We had such a great time connecting with everyone and learning more about the innovative solutions they are building. We can’t wait to do this again. Here are a few photos from the event.
