Cozy responds to the problems have this dispersion of personal information by letting you access your digital documents (invoices, pay stubs, healthcare reimbursements, etc.), even passwords, automatically. Once centralized in your personal cloud, you become the master of your own data, and can access them at any moment and organize them as you see fit.

Services adapted to your daily life

No more need to log in to your online services (like your bank, insurance, mobile service provider, etc.). Thanks to “connected services” and applications, Cozy provides you with a single access point to your data and allows you to check and manage them more easily. Goodbye manual downloads!

Here’s a list of the apps currently available:

  • Drive: save files, synch with different devices (Mac, PC, Linux, Android, and iOS) and share files
  • Banks: lets you have a single dashboard of all your different bank accounts (more than 50 banks are already available). Cozy links in one click to invoices or informs you of reimbursements by a colleague, employer, or employee. Administrative follow-up is simplified
  • Notes: lets you create notes, save them, and find them in your Cozy in the blink of an eye. Share your ideas with whomever you want in a secure space
