What does this feature help me with?

If you want funds to be protected from card swipes and ACH transactions, you can move them into Protected savings. Similar to a savings account, this is a good place to store funds that aren't needed for immediate expenses. Any funds in Protected savings will earn interest and can be instantly transferred back into Available at any time.

Back story

Protected savings has always felt like a no-brainer for our team. We have this great Move Money screen, and built-in paycheck funding, why not apply that to a savings product? Nearly every financial guru in the book talks about the benefit of "paying yourself first." It is a common accord in personal finance to "set aside money from each paycheck into a savings account." With the launch of Protected savings, we now allow you to completely automate this. You can automate a certain amount from each paycheck or each month to be stored in Protected savings. This is wealth building on cruise control!
