If paychecks were smart, they would arrive when you needed them, not at a fixed date set by your employer. If paychecks were smart, they would monitor your spending and protect you from fees. If paychecks were smart, they would do all of this automatically.
We’ve got great news.
Today, we’re launching Balance Shield, a new feature that will make your paycheck smart. When you turn on Balance Shield, the Activehours app will make sure your paycheck has got you covered by automatically Cashing Out up to $100 whenever your bank balance falls below $100. That means no more worrying about overdraft fees from small purchases.

Balance Shield works best when it can move money to you quickly. So, we suggest setting up Lightning Speed, if you haven’t already. Additionally, Balance Shield can send money to your account only if you have uploaded earnings, you haven’t reached your daily or pay cycle max, and your account is active. If for any reason Balance Shield is not able to send you money, we’ll let you know!
We were able to create this new feature thanks to our supportive community. When you pay what’s fair in the app, you’re helping us create new ways to make money work better for everyone. Thanks a million!
