Barclays bank has taken its online banking the inevitable step further with the introduction of a free service to enable customers to connect to online banking via a web-enabled mobile phone.
The Barclays.mobi web link will connect customers to pages designed specifically to be viewed on mobile phones. It is being offered to the bank’s 1.9 million online customers.
The service will initially enable customers to check their account balances and statements but more services will be added.
Sean Gilchrist, director for electronic banking at Barclays, said, “Barclays is constantly working to make the most of new technology and the opportunities it offers for accessing banking services.
“These days most of us are never far from our mobile phones and this new service means that we are now never far from our bank account either.”
