Your Finances — made simple
Actual Budget is a super fast and privacy-focused app for managing your finances. At its heart is the well proven and much loved Envelope Budgeting methodology.
You own your data and can do whatever you want with it. Featuring multi-device sync, optional end-to-end encryption and so much more.
Be involved in your financial decisionsAutomated finance tools are great, except when they aren’t. We provide you with tools that are quick to use, but ultimately you are in control. We help you learn, instead of dictating.
Meticulously designed for speedA beautifully designed interface is fine-tuned to get out of your way and make it as fast as possible to explore your finances.
Unabashedly local-first softwareActual is a local app, plain and simple. Your data is synced in the background so all devices have access, but the app totally works regardless of your network connection. This also allows end-to-end encryption to keep your data private.
