I want to add my account numbers to my account information.
I don't want them floating around the internet (for lack of a better way to describe it).
I've got my program password protected on my PC.
I manually enter all my transactions. None of my accounts are connected.
Since all the mobile app will do is view and enter transactions, I'm guessing that the account details are not shared with it.
I just want to verity this.
I know everything is encrypted, but I still worry, so I just want to make sure.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    Assuming you are using Moneydance 2017 or 2019 and as you are syncing to a mobile app then when you set up syncing all your data is synced to a folder in another folder “.moneydancesync” on Dropbox. This data is end to end symmetric AES256 encrypted with the key (encryption passphrase) only being held on your devices, not in the cloud. It’s the syncing encryption passphrase that is used, not your data set password when syncing. As far as I know data such as your account information is not synced on to mobile devices but would be synced on to other synced computers. The encryption system used is as used by banks.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.
    I'd feel better if it weren't, but knowing what's actually going on is good
    to know.
    I knew about the encryption, and I'm sure it's safe, but there's always
    that worry.
    It hadn't occurred to me that data would sync between computers. I have no
    need for that, but that's very cool.

    Thanks for the reply and all the info.
