Release notes for June release
The latest version of our Online Banking makes it easier to register your Visa debit card for 3D Secure. In Mobile Banking, you can now decide whether to activate your device's LED light when scanning payments.
Applying for a debit card: Inclusion of mobile phone number
You can make online payments with the new Visa debit card. To use this feature, you must first register online for 3D Secure. Registration requires a mobile phone number used for two-factor authentication. Until now, you had to call the SIX hotline yourself to register the phone number.
From now on, the mobile phone number is registered directly in e-banking when you apply for a card.
Discontinuation of support for IE11
As already announced, support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) is being discontinued with this release. From now on, you will have to use a more modern browser to access our e-banking. We recommend one of the following browsers:
- Microsoft Edge (successor to IE11)
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Adjusted forms on the website: As part of this release, the forms on the website have also been made more client-friendly and structured more clearly. The changes are of a visual nature and mainly affect the contact forms.
- "Volatility & Sharpe ratio" page in Portfolio Analysis: Problem displaying field sizes has been fixed.
Button for LED scanning in Mobile Banking
In Mobile Banking, the LED light of your mobile device may be activated when you scan a payment slip or a QR-bill. The default setting for this function has been different on iOS and Android devices, however (iOS always off, Android always on). With this release, you can now decide for yourself whether the LED light should be switched on or off. You can make the selection using a new button in the scan view.
Advance notice for Android 8 users
We are continuously improving our Mobile Banking app. To make sure you can still benefit from our user-friendly design and up-to-date security standards, please upgrade to Android 9 or use a device with the Android 9 operating system. Starting in autumn 2021, our Mobile Banking app will no longer be available for Android 8.
Discontinuation of support for Android 7
As already announced in the March release notes, our Mobile Banking app will no longer support Android 7 starting in June 2021. If you are still using Android 7, please upgrade to a newer operating system (Android 9.0 or later).
