In August of 2021, we announced that we would begin the process of sunsetting Direct Access 1. This is the version of Direct Access used in Banktivity versions 5, 6 and 7.
One of the steps in this process is to stop allowing purchases of Direct Access subscription time in our older versions of Banktivity (specifically versions 5, 6 and 7). We will be stopping all purchases of additional Direct Access v1 effective November 10, 2021.
Please note, we will not be turning off the Direct Access v1 service until customers have used up their existing time.
The future of Direct Access is version 2. It is more reliable, more secure, and contains the necessary infrastructure to support Open Banking in the US, UK and Europe which we anticipate more and more banks supporting in the future. Here is a bit more information on Open Banking in the US: https://www.banktivity.com/support/articles/banktivity-for-mac/open-banking-us/
If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to download and try the new Banktivity which supports Direct Access 2 and has numerous other features and improvements. Catalina or higher is required.
