Lloyds Banking Group has added Google Maps functionality to its mobile app to help customers pinpoint the exact location and details of debit card transactions with a single tap or click.
The integration with Google Maps is one of a suite of new updates to the bank's online and mobile services which now offers smart budgeting tools and card feeezes and nudges to help customers to choose how and where to spend.
The Payday insight feature has been added to show customers a timeline of scheduled payments for regular bills, giving users a clear view of how much free float they have left to spend each month. This is combined with regular nudges to help users stay up to date with their account activity.
New card controls have also been added, enabling customers to switch off or restrict payment card usage, curtailing transactions for online in-app, telephone, mail order purchases, and abroad to stop transactions including at ATMs, shops, restaurants outside the UK.
Stephen Noakes, retail transformation director, Lloyds Banking Group, said: “With more than 14 million people actively managing their accounts online with us, and nine million using our top rated mobile apps, we’re taking our industry-leading apps to the next level to offer customers a fuller view of their finances.”
