Starling Bank to integrate Android Pay
Written by Chris Lemmon
Starling Bank has announced that it has introduced Android Pay to its app, offering Android users a fast and free way to pay securely using their mobile phone.
The Android Pay function has been integrated with the Starling Bank app ensuring minimal setup time. Using Android Pay, customer card numbers are not shared with the store, rather a virtual account number is individually assigned, keeping customer information safe in the user’s hands.
Customers also have the freedom to lock their Starling Bank app and if their phone is ever lost or stolen, they can use Android Device Manager to instantly lock it from anywhere, secure it with a new password or wipe it clean of personal data.
Julian Sawyer, chief operating officer at Starling Bank, said: “’We are immensely pleased to be launching the Starling Bank integration with Android Pay, as this will help give our customers a greater sense of financial freedom and control. This has been a long-awaited update, for both Starling and our users, and we see this as a milestone in delivering an exceptional customer experience and speeding up the way you pay.”
