just looking thru the site (although I didn't sign up) and its not clear if it has auto-login or not.  but it seems that u can pay bills, etc on the site. which means its a step up from mint.com where all u can do is view what's going on.

They do auto-login to external accounts? I didn't know that. If that's the case they better have ironclad security.

They have 256 SSL encrypting.

256 bit SSL doesn't cover everything. Just because the door (for example) is ironclad, doesn't mean you can't get in though the window...

Why is this different than mint.com, which seams like you're all OK with? I know Dan was afraid of the miles equivalent to this - although he did it anyway.

Mint uses Yodlee, whose primary business is banking security. If Manilla uses Yodlee too, I'd definitely give it a try.

Do you mean AwardWallet?  AW has the ability to store your passwords locally (in a browser cookie) and not on AW's servers.

That's for SSL sessions when connecting to the site, IIRC they encrypt stored passwords using 256-bit encryption.

See here:

Quote from: Manilla.com Security Overview
The credentials you provide to us (usernames and passwords) are only used to access your account and your information so we can keep you up to date on all of your accounts. Your credentials are stored in an encrypted format using AES-256 symmetric keys, which is similar to the security protocol used by banks.

I use award wallet and have been pretty happy with it for organizing my points and cards rewards.  I use iBank (equivalent to Quicken) for organizing my finances.  From what I understand, it seems that this site does more than that and also combines finances and things; kinda like a mint and award wallet hybrid.  On top of that it makes bill statements and bill paying available.  That actually is a cool new added feature and might be worth checking out.
