And then it all falls apart when Plaid gets hacked and millions of people's _actual bank account usernames and password_ get stolen. That is not a safe premise to start a business (or to acquire one).

And because most companies that use plaid don't even show the Plaid logo, you don't know who is directly integrated with a bank and who is using Plaid

Some companies[1] indicate their Plaid dependency in their Privacy Policy, just like it is common to do when they use Google Analytics. But yeah, it's unfortunately not a standard.
