Digital-only bank platform N26 announced this week it now has more than one million customers in France. The banking group reported it launched its services in the country less than three years ago with a goal to become the first bank that the French “like to use.”
“At the time, 30,000 people had already joined our waiting list to be among the first to discover a new banking experience, with no paperwork and no hidden fees. And today, we’re proud to announce that we now have more than 1 million customers in France.”
N26 then revealed that since its launch in France it has implemented other services and features such as N26 Credit, in partnership with Younited Credit. N26 also revealed that it has integrated 3D Secure technology to provide extra secure transactions, launched discreet mode to let customers access their account in complete confidentiality when in public places, enabled Two-Factor authentication, and mobile payments.
N26 shared that 51% of its customers connect to their N26 mobile app from an iOS phone and 49% from an Android device. All age groups are represented:
- 25% are between the ages of 18 and 25.
- 37% are between the ages of 25 and 35.
- 38% are over 35 years old.
“The fact that N26 has now exceeded 1 million customers in France is all thanks to you! We are incredibly proud of this tremendous milestone and are grateful to you for continuing to bank with us, as well as for supporting us in building the bank that the world loves to use.”
The milestone in France comes less than two months after N26 announced it has made its mobile banking app available to U.S. consumers nationwide. U.S. residents may now download the app and apply for an N26 account and Visa debit card in five minutes. Nicolas Kopp, U.S. CEO of N26, stated at the time:
“We are excited to now open up N26 to the millions of US consumers who are frustrated with their current banking experience. We give users a banking app and Visa debit card that matches their lifestyles. We created a mobile, fast and easy way to bank.”
