I can confirm this. I really want to use the trading platform Gemini but will never cave to Plaid.

Any organization that asks for your personal password is nefariously normalizing this behavior and building complacency in consumers to trust anyone with their private information.

I didn't sign up for Gemini for a similar reason - I couldn't add my BofA account. What's wrong with the old school "take a picture of a voided check"?
