UBA’s new internet banking platform is not only now more secure, but it also helps you plan out your expenses better by automating a host of services which you perform on a monthly basis.
The best part in all this is that you can now register yourself using your debit card!
With new phishing tactics and data harvesting evolving on the world wide web, we have included this feature to keep your money safe, no matter what.
Now you can make up to 30 payments per screen to beneficiaries already saved in your history – at the touch of a button!
Take a quick look back at the payments you made in the last X days.
So you don’t have to keep filling the same information in every month, simply save your recurring payments into a template and initiate them with the click of a button in future.
