Shop online with confidence

You can trust Phylax to catch mistakes, so you can lead the online life you want to


Phylax tracks orders in real time without requiring any access to financial information like bank statements.


By default, Phylax does not block transactions, it advises. When it is likely you are about to purchase something you cannot afford, already own or do not need, Phylax will let you know and allow you to choose how to proceed.


Phylax can be configured to work only on certain sites, or for purchases above a certain value.

Share control

If necessary, control can be shared with a carer via our carer portal. When advice is not enough, a patient or carer can configure Phylax to prevent certain purchases or require approval.

Report and visualise

Phylax will report on patterns in purchase history to allow you to better understand habits and challenges relating to online shopping.
