As Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world, nothing is certain, except death and taxes.” It’s a great quote, but you can add bills to that list.
Every month, without fail, your bills come due. There is electricity, gas, water, cable, Internet, cars and credit cards. Paying them all can be a real hassle.
But that doesn’t mean keeping them organized has to be hard. The app FileThis is a paperless way to store and organize your bills, bank statements, medical records and other financial documents in one place.
You can still keep copies of your paper bills or online statements for emergencies, but the app is a great tool you can access anytime and anywhere. Whether you receive paper bills or just pay your bills online, FileThis has you covered. The app automatically collects and organizes the documents you need from your online accounts.
FileThis connects with lots of popular accounts like AT&T, Verizon, American Express and hundreds more. You can add in bills, too.
Of course, FileThis is taking your most sensitive financial information and storing it where you can’t see it. But it’s secure.
It uses 256-bit SSL encryption, which is the same level of online security that many banks use. Plus, if you ever suspect that one of your financial accounts has been hacked, just delete it. FileThis will automatically delete all your log-in credentials for that account.
Note: FileThis’ Forever Free plan has 500 MB of cloud storage, or the option to save it on your computer or your preferred cloud storage provider. You can link to six of your financial accounts.
There are more robust plans: Premium is $2 a month, or $20 per year or $50 for three years, with 1 GB of storage for up to 12 accounts. Ultimate is $5 a month, or $50 per year or $125 for three years, with 10 GB of storage for up to 30 accounts.
