The old one will still be available for a time
The Bank Of The Philippine Islands has officially launched their brand-spanking new mobile app today. The new app is meant to be the companion of BPI’s new online banking portal that was released last April, sporting the same aesthetic and minimalist design that you see when you log into the desktop version.
BPI’s integrated additional security features in the app, including one time PINs as well as biometric log-ins. OTPs are sent via text message to confirm money transfers, bill payments and account changes to make sure it’s really you doing it, and biometric log-ins via fingerprints and facial recognition (if your phone supports it) make it easier to log into the app.
