BDO warns clients: Don’t download bank apps from unofficial platforms

BDO Unibank is warning its clients against downloading mobile apps from unofficial app stores and other websites, which may offer outdated versions of these apps or worse, include a malicious software or malware.

The Bank said clients should download its mobile apps only from official app store platforms to ensure security of data.

Scammers use malware to gather confidential information that may be saved in mobile devices, such as online banking username and password, debit or credit card information, and other personal data.

The Bank’s mobile apps, namely, BDO Digital Banking, BDO Pay, BDO Deals, BDO Securities Mobile App, BDO Checkout, BDO Merchant, and BDO Unibank SG, can be downloaded for free from:

·       Google Play Store: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=www.pay.bdo.com.ph

·       Apple App Store: apps.apple.com/ph/app/bdo-pay/id1381315990

·       Huawei AppGallery: appgallery.cloud.huawei.com/ag/n/app/C103937877?locale=en_US&source=appshare&subsource=C103937877

Meanwhile, clients who are unable to download the mobile apps are encouraged to use the web version.
