Organize with favorites and tags

Learn how to use favorites and tags to organize your items and find them easily.

You can add frequently used items to Favorites to quickly access them later, and use tags to keep everything organized. There’s no limit the number of tags you can create:

  • a finance tag for your bank accounts and credit cards
  • a health tag for your health insurance, gym memberships, and fitness apps
  • an insurance tag for all your insurance policies
  • anything that will help find related items when you need them

You can use multiple tags on a single item, like health and insurance, to help narrow down your search later.
