Who is Finny?
Finny is our super friendly, approachable, and smart resident personal finance expert. Whether you’re learning or using our tools, personal finance doesn’t have to be daunting or intimidating because Finny’s here to help you at every step of your learning journey.
Now the question is this: is Finny a button-nose dolphin, a shark, a species of the robotic-kind, or entirely something else?
What are Dibs and how do I earn them?
The virtual currency in Finny’s underwater world is the Dib. It looks like a shiny gold coin – just the kind you’d expect to see underwater!
You earn Dibs by answering Learn questions correctly and referring friends to Finny.
And you can redeem Dibs within the Rewards marketplace for cash, giveaways, new skins for Finny, and more!

Does learning on Finny ever end?
Learning about personal finance is technically endless in this dynamic world we live in! Within Finny, each Level has four bubbles (or lessons). As you get more skilled, you move to the next Level.
When you’ve completed Level 20, you’ve mastered personal finance fundamentals!
But, your learning path won't just end at Level 20 because we will be adding additional Levels very soon.
At Finny, we build our content in-house and are working hard to deliver more relevant and bite-sized bubbles or lessons to you. Stay tuned for what's to come after Level 20! And if you have any ideas for topics, please share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I change my username?
Of course you can! You can edit your auto-generated username within your Profile as long as it’s 6 characters long and not already taken.
Your username is used as your identity on Finny when:
• you post discussion topics
• reply to posts within discussions

Is there a Finny mobile app?
We don’t have a mobile app right now, but we do plan to build a mobile app in the future. In the meantime, our website is mobile-friendly and works on all devices.
