Ain’t in good hands: Metrobank clients lose access to mobile banking services due to buggy app

Clients of the Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank) are up in arms because they’re unable to access mobile banking services through their app.

The depositors have taken their rants to social media after not receiving a proper response from the unibank owned by the bilyonaryo Ty-blings.

Many complained that they suddenly lost access to credit card controls and their balance updates from their current app.

Metrobank’s Twitter support page explained that access to the existing bank app has been discontinued to prompt clients to download and install a new app.

It turns out that the bank removed credit card features in the old app on November 11 in anticipation of the new online banking portal by November 16.

Those who got the memo, however, said the new app is a big flop. It’s riddled with bugs causing unresolved problems for over a week now.

“You should’ve not deleted the old app yet since your new app is not running,” Twitter user @ItsSheerluck said.
