Starling Bank: award-winning banking on your mobile
Designed primarily for existing Lloyds Bank customers, Lloyds’ mobile banking app is designed to be an easy way to view pending transactions, make payments and securely manage your money, all while on the move.
Once you’ve downloaded the app from the Google Play or App Store and installed it, you can enter your Lloyds Bank Internet banking details to link your account with the app. You’ll be sent a security code to input to the app to confirm your identity, and once you’ve confirmed it you’ll be good to go. You can use Lloyds’ app to:
The easiest way to apply to open a new account with Lloyds Bank is online. Go to its website to open an account, open a second account or switch your existing account to Barclays. You’ll also be able to do so in any of Lloyds’ high street branches.
One downside of the Lloyds app is that there’s little in the way of budgeting features. While Barclays Bank’s app allows the user to see a categorised breakdown of their spending in a given time period, and digital banking heavyweights such as Starling are well-known for their budgeting features, you can’t use the Lloyds Bank app to see a breakdown of where your money is going. You can’t see, for example, how much you normally spend on eating out or on train fares. If you’re looking for an app that does help you to focus your budgeting, it may be worth having a look at our reviews and guides.
Lloyds Bank prides itself on the security of its banking app. It uses leading security technology, such as advanced systems to control and monitor access to your accounts, remote control of access to the app (so if you lose your phone Lloyds can block it from accessing your accounts) and a fraud guarantee, refunding any money as long as you’ve been as diligent as possible. The app uses encryption to keep your details secure and there is also a time-out feature.
