I just tested it on the National Lottery website and it perfectly. Really nice implementation.
So I found an irritating bug. Tried to pay my Barclaycard using the app.
Made a payment, then it prompts for a 3DS approval. I go to do this by opening the notification to the monzo app, then the payment doesn’t complete because I’ve browsed away from the barclaycard app!
What would be great is 3D Touch for the notification like it is with some 2FA apps, so I never have to exit away from what I was doing.
For example the LastPass Verify app is great for approving or denying using 3D Touch on the notification.
This sounds like a really bad flaw in the Barclaycard app! They should have functionality built in to handle switching apps for OTPs etc. Did you kill the app or just switch out like normal?
How would you achieve the same on a device without 3D Touch? (I’m trying to think how to solve it for all if it’s going to be a common issue. Some of us have older phones ️)
Switch out as normal. Both the Barclays and barclaycard app do the same. They insta-lock as soon as you browse away. Saying that, the Monzo app does the same.
Just has a thought of that…older iOS devices I don’t think you can! Android can present a yes/no button on the notification.
Can you do it via their website?
Unfortunately it can’t be approved by a notification/not going into the app. Rika explained this above.
Maybe in future versions of securecode it will though
Monzo app generally returns to the same screen you were on though rather than resetting the session which is what all apps should do
I would imagine so. Because I would have two separate devices. Kinda defeats the purpose of the apps though.
From what I can see, when you browse back to the app, it re-presents the passcode screen. Which I guessing resets the flow of what you was doing.
Is there a setting in the app that lets you change how long you have to wait after switching apps before having to re-enter your passcode? The Lloyds app has this.
Not in the Barclaycard app, from memory.
Funnily enough I was just looking.
Nothing I can see.
It’s a shame, as it’s the first issue I’ve ever had with the Barclay’s apps. They tend to be the best out of the major banks.
Barclays/Barclaycard have never allowed this. It completely locks and resets any flow. It’s absoluely nonsensical and they don’t paticularly seem to care. Other apps can set timeout or even lock but take you back to where you were once you enter the PIN.
Strange as when I paid by MBNA credit card by the app when I switched back from Monzo to authenticate the 3D secure. It stayed open where I was previously and let it through. Strange would have thought barclaycard more modern.
The barclaycard app is terrible. I gave up.
The Barclays app is even worse as it does this regardless of what you’re doing. If you’re in a chat and the phone auto-locks, you get a phone call, switch apps, etc. it ends the chat and resets any flow. So you have to completely start again.
Remind me not to switch to Barclaycard.
What’s a good way to test this? I thought Coinbase was but apparently my Monzo card was already attached. Removed it, added it again, didn’t get any 3DS thing.
