New technologies are changing consumers’ lives and are rapidly shaping what they want from their bank. Consumers expect flexibility and want to be connected and in control of their money. BOV Mobile gives customers the ability to check account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, effect mobile to mobile payments and top up their mobile phones.
The BOV Mobile app also provides access to the Bank’s Internet Banking through ‘BOV Signatures’, the Bank’s digital securekey, and also BOV Mobile to Mobile Payments, a service that has risen considerably in popularity during the current COVID-19 scenario as a very convenient method of payment.
‘Our mobile phones have become an extension of ourselves and we tend to conduct many activities in our lives through our phones,’ said Franco Xuereb, Executive, Electronic Banking Unit at Bank of Valletta. ‘BOV Mobile is an ideal way to manage your finances without going to the Bank and with the full confidence that it is safe and secure.’
