Bank of the Philippine Islands, today, launched their new mobile app for iOS and Android. The new app is more streamlined and optimized and runs on a new platform that can handle 10 times more users than before.
BPI customers may start downloading the app today at 12noon both on the Google Play Store and the iTunes App store. The app will appear as a completely new one instead of just an update. This allows more time for customers to transition to the new app but eventually, BPI will sunset the old one.
One of the more significant features introduced is the biometric security which includes fingerprint login and Face ID for the iPhone X.
The new app has about 90% of the functionalities of the old one but additional roll-outs will be done on a regular basis in order to bring all new features on board.
