Because BillHero is bank-agnostic, you can pay any one of your bills with any one of your accounts, or a debit or credit card. Moreover, BillHero’s team of banking security experts have ensured that the company already subscribes to bank-grade measures, so you shouldn’t have to worry about your security.
