Usage

Why does the app open Safari for certain actions?

In accordance with rules and regulations imposed by the AppStore App Review Guidelines, donations cannot be processed directly in the app. As such, we took parts of the application, such as “Triggers” and “Donation Confirmation”, and open secured browsing¬†sessions to comply with the rules and ensure the experience is safe and delightful to our users.

Where do I go to learn how to use the app?

What do you use to monitor my transactions?

What do you use to process my payments?

SpareChange uses Stripe to process donations. For more information, please visit their site.

Security

How secure is this?

SpareChange doesn’t store credentials and other sensitive data that would put your information at risk should we get compromised. Here’s how:

Transaction Monitoring

Transactions are sent to us by Plaid. You can learn more about their security practices on their security page, but in short, they tokenize and encrypt sensitive data and advocate for the broader use of these protocols throughout the industry. They have passed a SOC 2 audit and regularly undergo compliance and pen testing.

Donation Payments

When you make a donation, we use Stripe to process the payment. They are fully PCI-DSS compliant for all payments with client-side tokenization in Stripe Elements or iOS and Android bindings. No sensitive data hits our servers, so it’s more secure across all ends.

Login

Using facebook authentication enables us to bypass the need of storing credentials on our servers, which provides an additional layer of security across the application.
