What’s the story?
The Federal Reserve has noted a significant levelling off in US consumer adoption of mobile banking and payments. Annual growth among smartphone users has remained at one percentage point for three consecutive years according to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ Consumers and Mobile Financial Services 2016 report. The average number of interactions per user per month is flat too.
Could mobile banking usage really have peaked at just over half of the population, far short of where most analysts predicted it would be by now? Or is it simply that today’s mobile banking apps lack the features and frictionless user experience necessary to gain broader acceptance? What role does fear over cybercrime play in slowing consumer uptake and inhibiting mobile innovation by banks and credit unions?
Entersekt’s experts can provide answers to these questions and in-depth commentary on:
- The opportunities that financial institutions are missing by playing it safe on mobile
- How securing mobile apps and reliably authenticating their users is the vital first step in spurring further innovation, improving consumer confidence, and truly making the most out of this transformative channel
- The technologies available for boosting mobile security without adversely affecting the user experience
