BillGuard was a personal finance company that developed a mobile app enabling users to better control and secure their money. Available on both iOS and Android platforms, the application enabled users to access detailed spend analytics, credit scores, charge details, transaction maps, and data breach alerts in one smart box. The app also drew upon a combination of crowdsourced feedback from its users, data from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, complaints posted across the internet, and its own algorithms to determine what charges to bring to users’ attention via email and smartphone push alerts. Founded in April 2010 by serial entrepreneur Yaron Samid and Raphael Ouzan, the company was based in New York and Tel Aviv and was acquired by Prosper Marketplace in Oct 2015 for $45M.
