One of Nigeria’s foremost financial institutions, Firstbank yesterday announced it has upgraded its mobile banking application, FirstMobile with new and improved features to promote safe and convenient Mobile Banking experience for customers.
Some of the key features in the upgraded application are the improved security and self-service features to ease the navigation capability and proficiency of customers. It comes with a unique cool blue colour background that gives it a more appealing interface for customers to enjoy a unified and streamlined banking experience whilst going about their day to day activities.
FirstMobile is now embedded with a card protection service for customers to enable and disable cards on channels, account switch off as well as second-factor authentication and device registration. With the upgraded FirstMobile, customers can remotely initiate the request for a new debit card as well as the replacement of a lost or damaged one, whilst managing activities on their card and account, thus balance inquiry and statement, amongst others.
The biometrics for transactions is another innovative security upgrade on the application to validate transactions. This feature includes fingerprint for transactions, allowing the customer to use his or her fingerprint to consummate all transactions.
Other added features include frequent transaction; dashboard flexibility and personalisation; smoother transaction experience and improved beneficiary management.
With the frequent transaction feature, the user is able to easily access his or her frequently completed transactions – airtime, transfers and bill payments – and reinitiate such with the clicks of a button. This is an additional menu that can easily be accessed from the dashboard. Airtime top-up and data purchases have also been improved, as customers are able to select phone numbers directly from their phone contacts.
The application has been upgraded with a smoother experience on funds transfer, bill payments and airtime transactions as customers can add and delete beneficiary without having to repeatedly enter the recipients’ details over and over again. Users can also take a photo or select from the Avatar (available icons) to personalize their dashboard and beneficiaries for Transfers, Bills Payment & Airtime Transactions by uploading a picture to associate with their beneficiary, especially the more frequent ones.
The dashboard has been designed to reflect the lifestyle and social pattern of the user as it can be customized by adding any profile picture of choice. The dashboard also enables users to monitor their spending patterns over a period. It shows the inflow and outflow of funds on their account.
In need of a loan to meet that pressing need, FirstMobile has you covered and puts you at an advantage with the FirstAdvance and Nano Loan features.
