All sensitive data is encrypted with the password that is entered on startup. You can choose to skip this step which will encrypt the data with a default password so that you will be logged in without asking you for a password.

The bunqDesktop settings, custom categories and category rules are not stored using encryption. This data is stored separately so it can be synced more easily across multiple devices.

Check out the settings page to see where this information is stored and to change this location if you'd like to move it. You can easily use services like Google Drive, iCloud Drive, Dropbox and other software to sync the settings file to always have the same categories and settings across your devices.


At no point is your API key, session information or other data directly sent to other servers or systems. All requests to the bunq API are done directly from the bunqDesktop client to the bunq servers.

We use Google Analytics with minimal settings (Source code) to check which version of the application is used and other basic information like system language, OS version and country. Your IP address is anonymized using IP Anonymization in Analytics. Google Analytics can be disabled on the settings page whenever you want.


We use yarn for package management and the following global packages:

$ yarn global add cross-env webpack gulp

Clone this project and install its dependencies.

$ git clone && cd bunqDesktop
$ yarn 

Run these commands in 2 separate consoles. One compiles the react app and the second takes care of running an electron instance with hot reloading.

$ yarn webpack:dev
$ yarn start:dev
