I’m so excited to announce another of our most requested features has been implemented in the latest version of the Bankwest App for iOS users – available very VERY soon. The v2.8.0 update is only available on iOS 8 or later and Android 4.0 and above. The latest enhancements include the following:

 

For Bankwest Online Banking (BOB) customers using an iPhone:

Access your accounts faster with Fingerprint Login.

 

Fingerprint Login uses Touch ID technology to enable secure sign in to the Bankwest App. You must have Touch ID and PIN Login enabled on your device, and SMS code set up on your Bankwest account.

 

Fingerprint Login is only available on iPhone devices running iOS 9 or later, with Touch ID technology. Fingerprint Login is not available on tablets, Android and Windows devices. Terms of use apply.

 

Follow these simple steps to get set up today:

  1. Log in to the Bankwest App.
  2. Open the menu and tap ‘Settings’.
  3. Select ‘Fingerprint Login with Touch ID’ and follow the steps.

For Bankwest Online Banking (BOB) customers using an iOS or Android tablet:

Login to the Bankwest App with a 4 digit PIN Login.

 

For Bankwest Online Banking (BOB) customers using an iOS or Android smartphone device:

  • Security enhancements mean SMS Code is no longer required when using PIN Login or Fingerprint Login.
  • Forgot your PAN? You can now find it in the app settings (also on tablets).

As always we welcome your feedback so we can continually improve the features available to you on the Bankwest App.

I've downloaded the new version of the app, which should allow me to log on with fingerprint sensor on my iPhone 6s+ but everything is the same as before. Any suggestions please??
