Fingerprint technology and Digital Securekey Launched

Would you ever have thought that your fingertips will do you banking for you?

Now they do!

Logging onto BOV's Mobile Banking no longer requires inputting your user number and your PIN, a tap of your fingertip and you are in. Authorising transactions effected through BOV Mobile Banking are also a fingerprint away.

Bank of Valletta is also doing away with the BOV Securekey for Internet Banking through 'BOV Signatures' - a digital replacement for the BOV Securekey through BOV Mobile. The one time passwords for logging in and authorising transactions generated by the BOV Securekey can now be generated through the latest addition to the BOV Mobile services, also through the use of your fingerprint. Moreover, users operating their BOV Internet Banking services through the Digital Securekey on BOV Mobile will get the service for free.

Speaking about the new services, Franco Xuereb, Executive, Electronic Banking Unit at Bank of Valletta said 'We are working to bring your entire digital banking ecosystem into your smartphone while making it easier and faster to log on and effect your transactions. The Bank will continue to develop the Bank's digital platforms so that you can plan your banking transactions to fit your lifestyle giving you the flexibility to conduct banking activities anytime you want to.'

The BOV Mobile Banking app is simple and convenient and customers can:

  • Check their balances
  • View transactions
  • Pay bills and BOV Mobile Pay users
  • Transfer money between own accounts
  • Top up anyone's mobile phone

The BOV Mobile App can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the App Store.  Full details at https://www.bov.com/content/bov-mobile-banking
