I've been reading a lot about Mint.com and Yodlee, but I just can't get over the fact that they store a set of credentials which could be used to empty your bank account if they fell into the wrong hands.

These aggregators would be far safer if there was a way to access your banking data using a separate set of credentials that provide read-only access. I've already heard that, in the U.S., Wells Fargo and ING Direct offer this kind of service via guest users and personal finance access codes, respectively.

So, which financial institutions in Canada offer this service?

    Perhaps you should tag this with the country you're specifically interested in? It would make the question more useful to others, too, since banking options are typically region-specific. – Chris W. Rea Oct 29 '11 at 14:27

    Thanks Chris, I've tagged the question to indicate that I'm interested in Canadian institutions. – Nic Oct 29 '11 at 20:22
  • I don't think any Canadian bank offers this capability for online banking. However, there seems to be a fierce push right now at most banks to improve their online banking platform so they may be open to the suggestion of guest accounts. – fideli Dec 8 '11 at 5:07
