Location-based magstripe warning: awesome feature πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Landed in Hong-Kong today, and was about to withdraw money from an ATM, when a :monzo: notification appeared advising me to enable magstripe.

Very impressed!:+1:

I wasn’t aware of that pop up/feature! Nice touch :mondo:

This specific screen?

This thread is the first I’ve heard of it, though admittedly I haven’t visited any countries where magstripe ATMs are an issue.

In any case, it’s nice to see things that were discussed with the Monzo team last year end up in the app. :thumbsup:

I wasn’t aware and I travel a lot!

Very cool feature, love the proactivity.
