Now you can draw cash from the ATM using the FNB App no card required

FNB today announced that the cardless cash withdrawal feature is available on the latest version* of the FNB Banking App. The feature allows customers to withdraw money at an ATM without using their bank cards.

This launch to the 1.2million active devices that currently make use of the FNB Banking App comes shortly after FNB announced that R2 billion has been withdrawn through cardless cash withdrawals on cellphone banking.

Giuseppe Virgillito, Head of Banking App at FNB Digital Banking says the rollout to the App was the logical next step.

“Enhancement of the FNB Banking App has always been driven by innovative banking solutions and customer demand. Our latest results show a 67% increase in App transaction volumes. This comes as a result of increased usage across the spectrum of App features as well as more customers that are migrating to the App for their digital banking needs.”

Over the past year, the FNB Banking App has been enhanced to include features such as lost or stolen card cancellation, opening of new accounts and ordering of new cards. Use of these features continues to see growth.

Whilst cancelling a cheque card would ordinarily imply that the customer would not have the tool to access their cash whilst waiting for a new card, cardless cash withdrawal serves as a complimentary feature ensuring that a customer can gain access to cash whenever needed.

“Irrespective of the reason for not having a card with you, your mobile devices are unlikely to be more than an arm’s length away. Cardless and cashless features on digital channels ensure simplified banking and 24/7 access to accounts, no matter what the circumstances,” concludes Virgillito.

*The latest version of the FNB Banking App is available from Apple, Android, Windows, and Blackberry app stores.

To use Cardless cash withdrawals on the FNB Banking App:
·         Launch the FNB Banking App
·         Select Cardless Cash Withdrawals
·         Enter your FNB online banking password
·         Follow the prompted steps
·         Once the temporary ATM PIN has been received the money can be withdrawn from any FNB ATM

LG Showcases Its Latest Tech In Smart Car of The Future

LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its various automotive products at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland from March 3-15. In collaboration with top automotive design studio Italdesign Giugiaro, LG has contributed several of its products and technologies for the Gea concept car.

LG has supplied all in-car displays for the Gea. A 12.3-inch full HD IPS display, which handles instrument control and displays other information, is located at the center and on the passenger side of the car. In addition, there is a 6-inch curved HD Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display in the front and rear console.

LG’s technology is not limited to the inside as the company’s Surface Illumination (SI) LED technology decorates the tail lamp. Also, there are three rear cameras replacing conventional mirrors which can be seen only when they are being used.

The Gea is also compatible with LG’s latest smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane LTE, which was newly introduced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in Barcelona. Through an exclusive app, the LG Watch Urbane LTE can get feeds and other information from the car, as well as be used to open and close the car’s door.

“I believe this collaboration is very meaningful for LG,” said Woo-jong Lee, president and CEO of LG Electronics Vehicle Components Company. “While cooperating with a firm as globally known as Italdesign Giugiaro, the partnership will definitely help LG to better understand smart cars, which will become more and more important market in the future.”
