Federal Government Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) fund performance data at your fingertips. You have immediate access to the closing share price data along with the price change and percent change for all the active TSP funds. Select a fund to see its 45-day fund performance graph. Not all TSP funds track synonymous with the stock market so this gives you direct fund performance where your investments lie. Login into your TSP account and view account balance and fund distribution.
Stop freaking out, people!
First of all, I want people to understand that this app is useful even if you never, ever log in to it. Without ever putting any information into it, this app shows you the gain/loss of each fund by the end of the day. Also, it shows a graph of the past 45 days of each fund. Being able to do that by opening an app on your iPhone is a lot more convenient than what TSP gives us.
And you know what? I've seen the warnings directly from TSP and I've seen it echoed over the course of a couple months through a dozen news organizations about how potentially dangerous this is. I agree that logging in is potentially dangerous (I've never logged into it). But where are the reports that anyone's account has actually been breached? Has anyone ever heard of someone getting screwed by this?
Not required to put account info
I don't understand you idiots giving this a 1-star because it is not "authorized". This is true, but this app does not require you to put in your account information to get a quick look at the daily fund data. If someone isn't smart enough to look into this app (or any app asking for personal information for that matter) before putting in their private information, so be it. This app is convenient for checking the daily rates with one click.
Why log in?
Why do I have to provide login info to track my account? A more secure option would be to allow me to enter the number of shares I have in each fund, then track on those shares. Periodically I could update the number of shares I have by checking my actual TSP account, but the difference would be relatively small.
This would allow me to get a very close approximation of my account balance, varying with share prices from day to day, without having to provide account login data. If the app provided this option for personalizing account tracking instead of actually logging into the account there would be no problem.
