National Online Bank Day is a celebration of the amazing age of the Internet! We can shop, order food delivery and book hotel rooms in the comfort of our own homes, all while using the convenience of internet banking. Even if you don’t currently use online banking, we urge you to try it out and join the rest of us in celebrating this day!
National Online Bank Day was first celebrated in 2015, founded by the American banking holding company Ally Bank in honor of its millionth customer. Online banking services were first launched in the early 1980s, with users being able to take out loans, view their account balances and use financial calculators. By the end of the decade, the services had become essential and the range of services had greatly expanded. Initially, many people hesitated to use the services due to fears of their data being accessed by intruders, however these fears have since dissipated.
With online banking, users can enjoy a variety of benefits, such as:
- No need to stand in long queues – manage your account from the comfort of your home;
- More advantageous offers than in a bank office;
- Simple registration process;
- User-friendly interfaces;
- 24/7, free service;
- Additional features;
- Thousands of people working to keep your data secure!
