Safety

Your data.
Our priority.

Akahu’s purpose is to give people control of their data.

We do that by providing the best account connectivity in New Zealand. Akahu makes it simple to access the data that organisations hold about you, and to share that data with trusted third parties.

Below you’ll find information about how we provide account connectivity while keeping security and privacy as priorities.

You control your data

Visibility and control

You choose whether to connect your accounts to other products, and you can disconnect accounts at any time.

If you’ve given ongoing account access to another product via Akahu, you can login to MyAkahu for visibility and control of that connection. You can also delete your data from Akahu at any time.
