Who can see my expenses and balances? How do I keep certain expenses and balances private?

Splitwise tries to keep this pretty simple (in order to save people from getting confused and making mistakes). In short:
  • If you're involved in an expense, you can see that expense.
  • If you're in the same group as an expense, you can see that expense.
That's it! The same goes for balances: you can see any balance that involves you, as well as any balances that are in your groups.

If you'd like to keep certain debts more private, then you should consider making a separate group for them, or adding those transactions without assigning them to any group. Expenses without a group are only visible to the people directly involved, so no one else will be able to see your private information.
