Starling Bank launches Online Banking: helping personal and joint customers manage their finances

5th October 2020

05 October, London: Starling, the leading UK digital bank, has launched Online Banking for its personal and joint bank account customers. Built in response to customer demand, the new online portal will allow Starling customers to manage their money from their desktop or laptop as well as their smartphone. 

With Starling Online Banking, customers will be able to: 

  • View their actual balance and up-to-date list of transactions
  • See what they’re spending their money on with the spending insights feature
  • View, setup and edit standing orders and any other regular payments they might have
  • Put money aside towards Savings Goals and track progress
  • Manage card controls
  • View and export statements, and save them straight to their desktop

The web version of the app joins a host of new releases that Starling Bank has quickly delivered in response to their customers’ needs during the coronavirus pandemic, including the Business Toolkit, Connected Card and cheque imaging. It follows the launch of Starling Online Banking for business customers last year.

As with the mobile app, the online portal has built-in security features that will keep customers’ money safe, such as data encryption and multi-layer user authentication to complete certain tasks. 

To access their account online, customers simply visit Starling’s Online Banking secure login page, enter both their account and mobile numbers and then tap the notification sent to their mobile.

Starling Bank Founder and CEO Anne Boden said: “Many customers told us they wanted to do their banking online as well as on their smartphones. By making accounts accessible on laptops and desktops, we’re giving them even more flexibility to bank the way that best suits them. As we’re all spending more time at home than usual, it’s important that our customers can manage their money from anywhere they wish at any time.”
