Some banking apps are not so privacy friendly

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/01

Some baking apps want a lot of permissions, including privacy sensitive ones.

Maybe they should split themselves in a small, non-intrusive app that allows payment confirmation, and fatter (hopefully less intrusive than now) app for account management.

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.
