After going through with the authentication security code from email, Awardwallet works until the next update then errors out again -- basically it seems the authenticated cookies aren't being saved properly
I no longer use it...when it can't keep 2 of my primary cards info and log me in, what's the point.

Be aware Award Wallet

Maintain your own records on the UA site or app. Despite testimonials on travel web sites, Award Wallet seems dangerous. They wont let you register witrhout giving your Social Security number and the only reason they might do this is to sell itand once you enter it, you have no control of your personal data. A colleague of mine entered her SSN on a similar site some years ago and someone was able to hack her bank account and she lost her life savings. If you use Award Wallet, be prepared for such a hack. I never enter any number of my SSN (not even the last 4 digits() on then web. I will only give my SSN to financial institutions or advisers on the phone.

Probably either awardwallet.com: https://awardwallet.com/blog/track-u...s-awardwallet/

or maybe Wallets Awards? https://www.mileageplusawards.com/wallets

I've been a paid subscriber of Awardwallet for a number of years now and it has never asked me for my SSN.

I too am a long-time subscriber and have NEVER been asked for my SSN.

Is there perhaps a web site with just one or two characters different from awardwallet.com that looks like Award Wallet and is trying to phish for info like SSNs? Just speculation. Have not looked for such a site.

How do people find the ical link? It doesn't seem very reliable for me.

Neither manual entries, nor itins that were emailed (not pulled through their direct link) show up on my ical

(ie I have 22 upcoming trips, but only 4 show up, and all of those are next week)

somehow Awardwallet on my android phone now asks to verify my subscription with... Apple.

I had originally paid for it via the AppStore but have switched to an android years ago.

The problem is that I can only click either cancel - which closes the app, or "verify" -> which leads to the app trying to access the iOS appstore on my android phone and the app crashes....

Still works fine via browser though.

Any solution to this? I've tried deleting and re-installing, same thing...

I have Hyatt points to expire in a months time (no activity for 24 months). Awardwallet has been showing my points to expire as scheduled. However, due to covid-19 Hyatt said it would extend points for people like me until end of December 2020. Does anyone know if (and when) the new expiry date for my Hyatt points will be picked up by Awardwallet? TIA.
