Very difficult experience signing up. I tried photo identity verification with my passport 5 different times (!), and it didn't work. They finally sent me a link to do video identity verification and that worked. Other problems: the app logs you out very quickly, so you have to keep signing in every 5 minutes if idle. The lack of 2-step verification via web is another major flaw, since the app is totally phone dependent. If you lose your phone, or it's stolen, you're out of luck. Use sparingly.

The app has a bug which often fails to allow me to confirm transfers, and the only way to fix that problem is to uninstall and reinstall the app (and go through several steps to link your phone back to your account). A few times, I wasn't aware the transfer didn't go through, and I was late on my payments. As far as the bank service goes, I'm pleased with the ease, but it's frustating to only be able to access my finances within a buggy app. Fix the bug, and you have a first-rate service.

Multiple times over the last month, pending transfers cannot be confirmed (and therefore sent) in the app. It doesn't respond to clicking with no indication of error or anything. Customer support confirms this happens to many users. There is no alternative way to confirm and customer support can't even do it manually. With urgent transfers, N26 can't be trusted. I was told just to wait and hope for the app to work in 24 hours.
