A feature I really appreciated on my legacy banking app was the ability to hide account balances.
Can we have an opt in hide balance feature on Monzo? Tap the pot/account and the balance appears…
I used this for two reasons:
Out of sight, out of mind saving - I was less inclined to remove money from my savings if I didn’t see the balance all the time.
Not publicising my balance - I often make payments to people when I’m standing next to them, and I often move money between pots etc. while I’m on public transport. It would be comforting to know my balance isn’t available to anyone looking over my shoulder.
I like this. I think Yolt has a hashing feature that randomises all of the balances and transactions within the app which is really nice. I’m not too worried about transactions but to be able to hide the balance would be nice.
Just make it optional if it caused such an issue? I’d like it hidden because of point 2 above but good to view it on demand with a tap on an eye icon or something. It’s a hassle finding somewhere discreet to use the app so people don’t nosy at my balance
