bunq update #4

November 16, 2016

After working day and night for weeks, we released another major update last night ๐Ÿ˜„! The bunq app is redesigned to be more user-friendly than ever. And we prepared a special surprise for you!

The features you've been asking for!
The revamped bunq app is bursting with new features - all of them free of charge for all personal accounts!

  • Another world’s first: Hand Recognition! This security method scans your hand and works in the dark.
  • Ask your money back from any phonebook contact. Even if they don’t have bunq!
  • No more IBANs: you can now send money to any mobile number, including non-bunqers ๐Ÿ˜Š.
  • Signup is even easier with Video Onboarding. Verify your identity without having to visit an office!

A new app: Slice!
On top of that, we prepared a big surprise! The Slice app makes tracking shared expenses a breeze.

  • Create groups to share expenses with your friends, housemates, or sport club.
  • Paid for groceries, drinks, or new sports equipment? Add it to your group!
  • Settle, and everyone automatically receives a payment request. You can pay with bunq or iDEAL.
