I don’t think the security argument makes any sense at all. Because I’m logged into my personal and my work phone, how does that make my account less secure? If one phone is stolen and somehow unlocked, they could easily get a magic link emailed to the device to log in if they so wanted. No other app I use only lets me log in on only one device at a time.
What would be better would be a ‘Log out of all sessions’ type button, or automatically logging out if you haven’t logged in in the past X days (7, 14, 120, whatever).
There is an app for the iPad. It’s just not iPad UX, hence my point? Perhaps my comms are poor.
I also tend to find that my device has enough security to get in to it in the first place and Face ID or passcodes are a wonderful thing and again, you have that on the Monzo app.
My point is that it is not fluid in interface, it’s as if you have to completely sign out out of one device and do the whole text/email thing again on another device.
Speed of use is essential these days. I had an instance the other day where inlet my battery on my phone die in the middle of a transaction so I dived on the iPad to find I could pick up where I left off and as such, lost time and process.
Does that make sense?
Take Coinbase for instance (poor example maybe) but I can open on both devices and they are in sync perfectly. It doesn’t matter what I do and on what platform.
My comment wasn’t directed at you, rather the way Monzo operates the moment - letting you log in to only one device at a time, unless your other device is a different operating system. It makes no sense
Multi-device support (currently only 1 per ecosystem) is more important than ever with the latest M1 Macs coming out that can run iOS apps, is it security stopping Monzo supporting more than one iOS device at a time?
To this day I don’t understand the logic behind this decision. How is it any more secure to only allow one more device to be logged in?! if I’ve authenticated myself when logging in (admittedly the email magic link is a rubbish system, but it’s what Monzo has chosen) plus given my PIN before any transfers are made, then I should be allowed to log in on as many phones, tablets - and now Macs as I like
