St George Banking App
St George has made lots of noise in the past week about its new MoneyMeter feature. On Android, it creates a widget that allows checking of an account's available balance, once the widget is tapped, without the need to log in to the bigger mobile banking app. On iOS, the action is performed by swiping on the home page.
Colour us shiny tinfoil hat wearers, but we're not sure we trust this feature. When a phone is lost, or left unlocked, does that mean anyone could have open access to the balance?
But that's guaranteed to happen never going to happen, is it?
