Bank of America customers may notice a variety of updates to the bank’s mobile and online offerings.
BoA announced a series of improvements to its online and mobile banking Tuesday (Sept. 15), which it said will better meet the changing needs of its more than 31 million active digital banking customers and allow for easier management of their finances online.
The updates include the launch of fingerprint and Touch ID sign-in, a new Apple Watch mobile banking app, an enhanced “Accounts Overview” landing page and the introduction of the bank’s new Security Center.

“We continue to deliver enhancements that provide our customers a more seamless and secure banking experience,” Michelle Moore, head of digital banking at Bank of America, explained in a company release. “This is another example of how we are helping our mobile and online banking users simplify their financial lives.”
Fingerprint and Touch ID capabilities will provide BoA customers on eligible Android and iOS mobile devices with a secure and convenient way to access mobile banking functionalities, the bank said. The fingerprint sign-in was built according to FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) standards as part of BoA’s ongoing efforts to fight against cyberattacks.
The bank’s mobile app has also made a move to Apple Watch, allowing customers to view account balances and recent transactions, as well as receive real-time notifications.
Mobile and online banking customers will have access to additional tools and resources for securely managing their finances through BoA’s newly launched Security Center.
“Customers can now manage their digital banking security settings in one place, and can opt into an extra security feature at sign-in that helps verify the customer’s identity with a one-time authorization code sent via text or email each time they sign in,” BoA said.
