The news means Revolut customers will now be able to access their accounts online through their desktops or laptops as well as their smartphones.
We’re big fans of Revolut here at bonkers.ie given the great value it offers as well as all the novel payment features it provides. From disposable virtual cards to make shopping online safer to fee-free foreign exchange purchases, there’s so much to recommend.
However one thing that was bugging us was the inability to access your account online through a web version of its app - similar to the online banking facilities most traditional banks offer.
While the Revolut app on your smartphone is almost perfect, sometimes it's just handier to carry out your banking from the comfort of your desktop or laptop. And only being able to access your account through your phone also meant things got complicated if you ever lost it!
Well, ask and you shall receive it seems, as from today Revolut has launched its online 'Web App' for its over one million customers in Ireland.
How do I access my account?
To access the Web App, just visit Revolut’s secure online login page at https://app.revolut.com/start, enter your mobile phone number, and follow the instructions on the screen.
When you log in you’ll see a complete overview of your account, your transaction history and cards.
What can I do?
As well as the above, you'll also be able to:
- freeze and unfreeze your cards
- block and unblock your PIN
- toggle all other card security settings on or off in a few clicks
- top up your account via bank transfer, debit or credit card, or Apple Pay
- contact customer support
Nik Storonsky, CEO and Founder at Revolut said:
“Account access through a browser is highly requested by our customers, so we’re delighted to have built a safe and convenient web app that everyone can use when they need it. Our customers can now access their money anywhere and at any time, even if they don’t have their phone or card, or if they simply prefer checking their account from a computer. It’s great to have the extra convenience and flexibility of an online option.”
Helping to revolutionise banking
Current account fees are very much back in fashion unfortunately. Both BOI and AIB have introduced new fees in recent weeks. However Revolut and N26 continue to innovate and push the boundaries of what we thought was possible with banking, while also offering great value.
And while they may previously have been regarded as niche products they are now both worthy alternatives to a traditional current account.
If you’ve yet to sign up with either of these accounts, you can see how they both compare right here.
