Now to preface I'm in no way great with google sheets but i have been using it for years to keep basic bookkeeping and management of my finances. Although I could keep doing this would it honestly be easier to use a finance app or accountant? I wouldn't know where to start and I see no point wasting money to try and manage my money. What would people suggest I do? If you think id be best with an app though, what one is even best for my situation?

If you want your finances to be visible to anyone and accessible to anyone who wants to see them, be sure to put them somewhere on the public Internet.
I wouldn't do that.
And of course, I would never use Google's public services for that. But if you really have so much money that you should use an accountant, you will definitely find money to pay for secure accounting.
It is worth remembering that nothing that happens over the Internet is completely secret and secure. Everything is exactly as secret as the human mind can understand. But in real life, most people don't understand it and thought that everything is as everywhere told - very secret.

I still use Google Sheets for anything financially related. It is a god-send. Automating conditions and formulas are so easy and it is 100% customizable depending on how you want to do it. When I was starting my own social media agency (from scratch using several guides), I had to create an elaborate accounting system for all the investments, income, and expenditures. Took me a month to get everything settled.

tl;dr–yes, Google sheets is amazing.
