Home Your Tech Mobility NAB upgrades mobile banking app

National Australia Bank (NAB) has upgraded its iPhone and Android apps to give customers the option of setting a four digit passcode linked to their device.

The Bank says this is more secure than using an Internet banking password. The new versions also now allow customers to set future-dated bill payments and funds transfers, without having to log-on via a PC.

According to NAB's executive general manager of direct banking, Sam Plowman: "Mobile banking is NAB's fastest growing channel, with 300 percent growth in the last year and one in three NAB Internet banking logins are now done on a mobile device."

He added that the changes had been made based on feedback from more than 4000 customers, collected via social media and user surveys.
