Good for them.

A wise security move.
and they are taking away the word plus from my account. i'm fuming. just going to rename it 'plus account' to stick it to the man
Sensible
Security. They are always hacking without jb
Pretty sure Barclays already do this. It's a good move for security although as I like playing about with my phone it would annoy me...
Barclays have always done it for the mobile banking app and pingit. I haven't jailbroken my phone for a few years now because of it.
good, reverse engineering devices and thinking banks will allow these devices access is just ridiculous.
Barclay's and a few others already do this, very sensible move.
People will buy 2 each now.

Scammers may be forced to target the accounts at other banks now too.

Xposed in android had modules to continue to use such apps whilst rooted.

We are being watched. oO

That's not what the cached data from HUKD.ie says.

Thanks for the update. I'll change my database now.
My iPhone is Jailbroken, should be fine, I use the web front to access my account if I need to, but it would be pretty useless as, to make a transfer, you need to go through them calling you and putting in a number that's on screen for a new payment, and the mobile is not setup as that number, just for security
