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 seperatly 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 anonimized using IP Anonymization in Analytics.

Along that we use Sentry to log errors when they occur. These only include fatal errors from within bunqDesktop and not any API errors received from bunq. We ensure that both in the client and within sentry that extra filters are in place to ensure no private data is sent or stored.

You can choose to disable Google Analytics on the settings page whenever you want. Since Sentry is important for us to find out about errors this can not be opted out of as of now.


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 git@github.com:bunqCommunity/bunqDesktop.git && cd bunqDesktop
$ yarn 

Run these commands in 2 seperate 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 


We have a public Telegram chat group and a topic on bunq together.

If you just want a notification when a new version is released you can also join the Telegram updates chanel.

Feel free to create a new issue for any suggestions, bugs or general ideas you have on Github or contact us through one of the above.


Thanks goes to these wonderful people (emoji key):
