Dwolla asked for my bank account number and bank password. I've never been asked for this info from other companies I've dealt with. Has anyone else ever dealt with this company?

Not for this particular company (Dwolla) yet...

I did provide that info to Payza.

The part that bothered me at the time is,

Payza's text box for passwords did not
allow enough charactars forcing me to
shorten my bank password...

(I would change the bank password,
Initiate a Payza thransfer,
Change the bank password back)


I also opened a separate bank account just
for online payments (purchases too...).

Look for one that has a low minimum balance
to avoid monthly fees. I found one that has a
minimum requirement of $500 to avoid this
fee.



... Then again I am not as paranoid as many
people on this subject...

True, I opened a separate checking account
however every transaction is date and time
stamped... ... If it gets compromised, go ahead,
It's insured...

I agree with tasman1 I don't think that is normal...never had to provide that for any account anywhere. I was thinking about joining too but after coming across a lot of negative reviews I think I need more time now after reading this I may never join lol. A few people here have actually already received their payouts with no issues ....I wonder if they had to also give out that info.....


I have a Payza account too and all I gave them was my account# and routing# can't remember ever giving them any password....

They offered two options. The option that was the quickest asked for a bank password. Their second option would have taken far longer for the transfer. They claimed they would not be storing that bank password and only needed it one time to confirm the account existed.

We'll see how this goes. I may go back to the check payment and change my bank password.

To be honest,

If reward sites are your hobbie,

You get paid what??

Every 3 or 4 months or more...

You should be changing passwords
atleast as often...

...If you use it a lot.


Me I dont worry, could give my bank
password here, but then this thread
will be locked... ;)


That said, stay within your comfort zone...
Don't feel comfortable, Don't do it...

@ tasman1,

FaceBook keeps that (and ALL other info)
So if FaceBook was breached, one can almost assume so...

FaceBook and Google are accused of key logging. (More info to come, watch the news in the next couple of days.)

If you write a post on FB, then decide to delete it
and not send, They keep what you wrote and store it...

FaceBook and Google have HUGE Data Centers and can afford to keep all of that data...

Most companies can not.


Ever log into FaceBook with an old password?
They tell you - "Woops, Looks like you used an old password, try again."


Now (as far as we are concerned),

These days passwords are encrypted.
And if done right, the general answer is no.

If you trust the site owner/developer.


The way I see it,
If someone means to do harm, they will.

Greed is a powerful emotion...

However, is the outcome worth it?

I can spend weeks/months trying to break
into an account.

But, there better be something in there to be
worth my time...


Simplified:: you are 99.98% safe.

Never change a password from a link in an email...

If I receive an email "Time to maintain your account",
I always log into the account directly.

Don't follow the link in an email when concerning an account.

What concerns me is when I use the wrong password for a site...

Logging into NB with a CS password. (As example)

or;

Logging into FaceBook with a Twitter password...

A site owner can leave an old server online after upgrading/moving data to a new one... ;)

Me to.

Logged in this morning because I thought I accidently liked a page...
Went through history, Last activity was almost a decade ago.

That's how I learned about them using the old password.


I keep it active for CrowdFlower and fear that FB is one day going to be a main tool
for login forms.

Fear FB logins are becoming normal... :shock:

GoDaddy moving AWS. One my main affs did first thing they did dump few billion ips and only keep for 90 days so stopped getting new customers. I only promoted them as lifetime IPs went from three million under me to none. Removed all advertising as not worth it. Bulk in same industry do a year if they done that but slowly I of been ok with it.

Would that have to do with the difference between Bank Wire and Bank Transfer?

If I recall, the password is used by a third party (within the banking community) for verification.

--
Googled "third party bank validation"
First page result : Bank account verification made simple with Plaid and Dwolla

Of course I have Googled Dwolla in the past few days, so a first page result is suspect... ;)
It is to a recent article (if that can be believed, ugh.)

I cashed out using Dwolla. They didn't ask for my bank password. After :clixsense: confirms payment amount dwolla sent me an email. After that you just set up an account with dwolla. Then you just put in bank account and routing numbers. ( I used a prepaid debit card direct deposit method) Mostly cause I would never give out my personal bank info online and if something happened I could always just cancel the debit card. So from receiving email from dwolla and actually having money arrive really was 2 days. It's alot better than check because that would take up to 3 weeks to get by snail mail. They never asked me for my bank password.

Why would they even need your password? To confirm the account does not sound right to me....other companies (like Paypal etc) manage quite well without. Any company asking me for my password would be instantly on my do not use list....even the bank itself would only ask you to tell them your password under the rarest of circumstances. I never provided it for Payza either but then they never asked for it, nor required it in all the years I used them (when they were Payza and before when they were AP). Providing passwords to anyone else is just asking for trouble and not worth the risk

Godaddy was the same group running Webanswers which, without warning, stopped paying its contributors and just died. I'd never use Godaddy for anything.
