Some banking apps are not so privacy friendly

For now, I try to avoid these apps as they are single points of failures.

ING had a great TAN code system on paper. It hardly had any side-channel attack vectors, and by putting some copies in geographically distinct locations, you had good and safe back-ups too.

It looks like the successor is a single point of failure: only one scanner device per account holder is possible.

Let’s see what the future will bring.
