What is an online bank? Is it safe?
Digital banking (also known as online banking) is the moving online of banking activities that usually took place at a physical bank location. Some of these activities include cash deposits, withdrawals, transfers, paying bills, and other account services. Digital banking is a term that is used to describe a banking activity that takes place on a digital device, such as a mobile phone or a laptop computer. Paying for groceries by scanning a QR code on your phone, paying bills online, or sending money to a friend via an app is all considered digital banking.
