Starling launches online banking
Starling Bank said the online offering is in response to customer demand, allowing current account customers to manage their money via desktop or laptop.
Customers will also be able to view their balance and transactions, see the spending insights feature, view, set-up and edit standing orders, manage card controls as well as view and export statements straight onto desktops.
Starling added that as with its mobile app, the online portal has built-in security features such as data encryption and multi-layer user authentication to complete certain tasks.
To access their account online, customers can visit Starling’s Online Banking secure login page, enter both their account and mobile numbers and then tap the notification sent to their mobile.
Starling Bank founder and CEO, Anne Boden, said: “Many customers told us they wanted to do their banking online as well as on their smartphones. By making accounts accessible on laptops and desktops, we’re giving them even more flexibility to bank the way that best suits them.
“As we’re all spending more time at home than usual, it’s important that our customers can manage their money from anywhere they wish at any time.”
In September it launched a £2 a month debit card for kids linked to parents’ accounts in a bid to introduce them to money management skills as they return to school.
