Bank Of Ireland

Bank of Ireland has introduced a range of new features designed to give more control to how customers manage their debit and credit cards through online banking channels, including the mobile banking app and 365 desktop.  The new card management and control features will make a range of everyday transactions easier than ever for Bank of Ireland customers by adding self-service card management features.

Available now through smartphone or desktop, the features will enable customers to:

  • Activate a new debit or credit card for online transactions
  • Freeze/unfreeze card – in the event of a misplaced card
  • View card PIN instantly – in case you forget it
  • Order replacement debit or credit cards without having to call the bank
  • Set up credit or debit card for Apple Pay
  • Set up debit card for Google Pay

Discussing the introduction of the new features, Director of Digital Centre of Excellence at Bank of Ireland, Christine Hamill said:

“The financial wellbeing of our customers is a top priority for us, meaning we are committed to giving customers more control over their money.  These new capabilities do exactly that, by enabling our customers to manage even more aspects of their day to day finances in a safe and secure way, using our mobile app or desktop, and without having to call us or visit a branch, if they chose to do this. We look forward to bringing more new features to customers over the coming months.”
