Announced tonight at bunq Update 22 in DeLaMar Theater in Amsterdam, bunq introduces new features that will help location-independent people from all across the continent easily track and manage their finances.
Automatically enable or disable cards while traveling
bunq was the first bank to let its users enable and disable cards per country: now, the neobank is adding another feature to keep its users ever more protected. Thanks to a new feature, bunq users will be able to automatically enable their cards for any country they’re in, based on their location, while disabling other countries.
Multi-currency Group Expenses
Travel abroad with friends without worrying about money admin: bunq users can assign any of the 16 currencies on the bunq app to automatically settle a Group Expense for a dinner or a party in a chosen currency – no matter in what currency the expenses were made!
Custom categories – understand your spending like never before
bunq Update 22 gives bunq users even more freedom to customize their spending categories: as well as categories like travel or entertainment, users will be able to create their own categories for whatever they like and get more personalized spending insights at the end of the month.
