ABN AMRO now allows transfers to unknown account numbers without an e.dentifier

Starting today, Android users can use the ABN AMRO Mobile Banking app to transfer money to any beneficiary without needing their e.dentifier. Instead, they only need a 5-digit identification code to authorise the transfer. If the client has activated a daily limit, this functionality is subject to that maximum. iOs users will have to wait until January for this option. Previously, transfers could only be made using an e.dentifier unless the beneficiary was an account number to which the client had already transferred funds during the past 18 months.

Frank Verkerk, Chief Digital Officer, explains, ‘This feature gives shape to a desire frequently expressed by our clients. I also believe that clients should decide for themselves whether or not they wish to use this option: they can activate or deactivate it whenever they want. Offering maximum freedom, this flexibility reflects the concept of our Mobile Banking app that our clients themselves control the look & feel and decide whether to activate or deactivate various functionalities.’

The Mobile Banking app is becoming more and more popular, currently being used 57 million times every month. This is four times as much as Internet Banking.
