Signing up for a N26 current account

I decided to sign up for a N26 current account to try it out even though I had switched over to KBC. N26 is waiving the normal €2.90 monthly fee for the MasterCard if you sign up and verify your account before February 1st. I’ve already covered N26 and the two accounts they offer in another post so will not go over it again. N26 advertise the signing up process as taking as little as 8 minutes to complete. You can either sign up on their Android app, Apple app or on their website. There are some reports of people having…

N26 Black Account included Insurance

I recently needed to move my current account away from Bank of Ireland and was seriously considering moving to N26 but decided instead to go to KBC. After all the issues with KBC I’m considering moving again and opening an account with N26. N26 have two products – their standard current account and their black account. As part of their black account you get travel insurance, extended warranty insurance, mobile phone theft insurance and ATM mugging insurance included. I decided to sit down and read the terms and conditions to see if it was worth paying the extra for the N26 Black…

Video on N26 Security

As I mentioned yesterday there are some safety concerns over how N26 secures their customers details and accounts. This is an issue all Fintech companies will experience – the trade-off between getting a product launched quickly and ensuring the product is completely secure. The video is 30 minutes long and I found it very interesting. While the video concentrates on the programming styles and design choices N26 made you do not necessarily need a background in programming to find it interesting.

N26 Online Bank Account

I’ve recently been looking to move my current account as I had a bad experience with Bank of Ireland. Ideally I don’t want to have to deal with keeping a minimum balance or lodging a certain amount of cash each money to receive fee-free banking. In the end I decided to go with KBC Extra account – even though I am required to lodge €2,500 per month, Android Pay played a large part in swaying me. The account was finally opened the same day I realise KBC might be leaving the Irish market. When looking into the options, N26 jumped out at…

IrishVoip.com – Port your number

I was with Magnet for our internet and phone but decided to move over to eir. I had hoped to sign up to a landline/broadband bundle and port the number over from Magnet to eir. We’ve had the same number for years so we didn’t want to lose it. As it turns out eir were unable to port the number across as ‘the number was on a different exchange’. They couldn’t give any further information or explain why I was able to port from eircom to Magnet in the first place without issue. It made no sense to me or to ComReg.…
