Apparently in Europe, managing your account(s) can be a hassle -- which is where this online banking app comes in. Based in Germany, Number26 is Europe's fastest account-opening service. The startup makes managing banking facilities easier in part through online notifications and bank statements in real time.
The online banking app allows users to sign up for a new account in five minutes. The process involves filling out a form on the Number26 site before a video chat is established to verify the user's identify. Those applying can use their webcam to show their passport and answer some simple questions. After the set-up is finished, the Number26 app can be used to manage accounts, make payments, cancel cards and more.
