Can you believe it’s the end of 2019 already? While for many December is a month for relaxing and taking a much-needed break, at Monese, we haven’t wound down just yet! Our teams have been hard at work, preparing the coolest new features to help you manage your money more easily.
This month we introduced joint accounts to help you better manage any money you share with a partner, housemate or anyone else in your life. This is perfect for friends or couples who share expenses or are saving for something special together. With a joint account, you and a friend can set up monthly budgets, spending notifications — even direct debits! You’ll also share the same balance and allowances, which include:
Joint accounts are available to customers in the UK and the European Economic Area except for France but will be coming here very soon.
For a new simple and secure way to pay right from your phone, we’ve launched virtual cards this December for all of Europe! A virtual card adds an extra level of security and protection when shopping online as your virtual card number will be different than the one on your physical debit card. With your virtual card, you can:
If you’re out in public and need to check your Monese app, you can now do so safely with the new Privacy Mode. With this handy feature enabled, you’ll be able to open the app and shake your phone to hide your balance and other transaction amounts. You can also open the app directly in Privacy Mode to be extra vigilant.
Need to send, request or receive money from a friend? Now you can do so even faster! With the option to find friends nearby, you can easily locate other Monese users around you who are discoverable via Bluetooth. Once found, tap on your friend and either send or request your money. No need to enter any extra details — much more convenient!
We've also made more than 81 other bug fixes and improvements, including a patch for those of you who send money to Poland in PLN. Other tweaks and enhancements include:
That’s all for December!
We’d love to hear your thoughts on these refinements plus any suggestions you may have for future features you’d like to see in the new year! Reach out to us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter with your ideas or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be back with another update in 2020!
