If you’re a NatWest customer and looking for a way to manage your money on the move, you’ll want to consider NatWest’s mobile banking app. The app allows users to securely check on their balance, move money and handle their funds 24/7. It also comes with a feature that is unique to NatWest’s app – the Get Cash feature. Catering for those awkward moments when you find yourself in need of money but without your card, this feature allows the user to withdraw up to £40 from any NatWest or Tesco cash machine using only a unique code which is sent to you through the app. The code expires after one use, which, together with the relatively small withdrawal limit, makes it pretty secure.

The easiest way to apply to open a new account with NatWest is online. Go to the NatWest website to open a sole or joint account, open a second account or switch your existing account.
If you’re looking to stick to a budget, the good news is that the android version of NatWest’s app offers users the option to set up a standing order or transfer from a current account into a savings account. This can be done right after you’ve set up your savings goal. While the app doesn’t offer categorised breakdowns of expenditure like Starling, this feature is still notable as it highlights what the NatWest app can do beyond simple management of finances.
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is an independent statutory fund set up to safeguard consumer finances in the event of a bank being unable to meet its payment demands. NatWest has full FSCS protection which provides compensation for the loss of up to £85,000 – as is the standard for UK bank accounts.
There’s also little cause to worry about the security of your details, as NatWest’s app uses Touch ID, Face ID and Android Fingerprint to ensure they’re protected.
