What is Simplifi by Quicken?
Simplifi by Quicken is a personal finance management app that offers a comprehensive yet simple way to see a consolidated view of all your accounts, track your day-to-day spending, and achieve your savings goals.
We created Simplifi by Quicken to meet the needs of people looking for a fresh approach to managing their finances and developing healthy financial habits. Nobody wants to be inundated by third-party ads or nagging reminders from an app that can’t adjust to your specific needs. Simplifi by Quicken provides an ad-free, customizable experience, with goals that you set up for yourself to help you stay on track.

Today, Simplifi by Quicken builds on those decades of experience. This brand new personal finance app handles many routine tasks using smart automation while still providing a high level of customization. It’s especially helpful for those who are just getting started in their financial journey or who don’t need the level of detailed oversight that Quicken provides.
