Muscat, February 01, 2017: National Bank of Oman (NBO) has partnered with FRiENDi mobile, the first Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) in the region, to launch a new series of services on its Mobile Banking App, enhancing the bank’s position as a technology and innovation leader in the Sultanate.

Available on the App Store and Google Play, the updated app now allows users to top-up online, and both Android and iPhone users to log in through fingerprint recognition. Daily transaction limits for transfers and bill payments and improved controls on beneficiary registration have also been introduced to enhance customer security.
