Account Alerts

Updated 6 months ago by Hoai Phong TRAN

Lydia helps its users to have better control over their money, by allowing them to be notified when something happens on one of their accounts.

These alerts can be received:

  • by email;
  • by push notification (on phone).

Alerts are enabled by default but it is possible to disable or configure these alerts to personalize them. Users decide which ones they want to receive, under what conditions, and how to be alerted, account by account.

Account alerts can work on Lydia accounts, Lydia pools, but also on connected bank accounts.

Modify or create an alert 🚨

To access the alerts for an account, go to the account to follow, from the home page of the application, then go to the “Alerts” section.


👉 To add one, click on “Add an alert”.


👉 To deactivate or delete one, you have to uncheck the box next to it.

The different types of alerts

  • Transaction made over...

When an operation impacts the account, the user will be warned. The transaction can be an expense or a receipt. If it's an expense, it can be done by the user or by a member of the shared account who has the right to spend money.

  • Balance too low or too high

When the account balance reaches a defined threshold or limit, the user will be warned.

  • Weekly balance

This alert simply provides regularly on the status of the account. It is sent every Sunday morning.

Alert criteria
