    Quick Balance is an optional feature that allows you to view your account balance and available funds of up to 2 selected accounts without logging into the App by holding the button on the PAC (Personal Access Code) entry screen.

    We recommend that you keep your phone locked to prevent other users from viewing this balance.

     

  • Can I turn off the Quick Balance feature?

     

     

    Yes, Quick Balance can be turned on and off as often as you like. To change your Quick Balance settings go to the ‘Services’ menu within the App, then select ‘App Settings’ and select the Quick Balance option.

     

    You can also change the accounts that you nominate for Quick Balance on this page of the Services menu. (Quick Balance can display up to 2 accounts of your choice).

  • What do I require to access AIB Mobile Banking?

     

    To access AIB Mobile Banking our customers require:

    1.      Either an iPhone running on iOS 8 or above, or an Android phone running on version 4.4 or above

    2.      The AIB Mobile App downloaded from the Apple App store or Google Play store

    3.      Log on details for AIB Phone & Internet Banking

    4.      An internet connection


    Customer connectivity to AIB Mobile Banking, using the mobile phone signal, will depend on the telecom provider's mobile / wi-fi / broadband network speed. This may vary depending on:


    1. The number of customers accessing the mobile provider's network at any given time.
    2. Whether the phone is receiving a 3G signal from the mobile provider's network.
    3. The type of phone, operating system and/or browser being used.

    If you encounter any problem with your mobile phone internet connection, you should contact your mobile network provider /broadband or wi-fi service provider.

     

  • What are my Available Funds?

     

    Your 'Available Funds' show the actual amount you can transfer or withdraw from your account including where applicable any overdraft limit approved on your account. The amount is subject to transaction limits and takes into account "Pending transactions" which have not yet been processed to your account.* Depending on your account set up 'Available Funds' may also include items which have not yet cleared and also items which may later be returned unpaid on your account.

     

    Example:
    If you have €500 in your account with pending debit card transactions of €200 and an overdraft of €500:

    Your 'Available Funds' would be €800.
     

    If the Bank has agreed to a set-off arrangement where the balance in one of your accounts may be used when making payment decisions on another of your accounts, the available funds on your current account may be increased or decreased by the available funds in another current account(s) held by you. i.e. the available funds are combined. To calculate the actual available funds amount, amalgamate the available funds amount in each current account.
     

    Example:
    If you have available funds in account A of €1000 CR and available funds of €200 DR in account B, your combined available funds is €800 CR.
     

    * Note: There may be debit card transactions which are not reflected in your 'Pending' section of the transaction screen or 'Available Funds' where they have not yet been advised to us due to the nature in which the retailer / merchant processes debit card transactions.

     

  • What is my Balance?

     

    The "Accounts overview screen" Balance
     

    The balance that appears on your Quick Balance service will depend on which account you have selected for this service. See the section on Quick Balance for more information.


    For some customers the balance will only include transactions which have been processed to their account. This does not include any Debit Card transactions not yet posted to their account including those in the "Pending" section of the account transactions screen.
     

    Other customers will see a balance which does take account of "pending transactions" which have not yet been processed to the account. For these customers this balance will not include items lodged to their account which have not yet cleared.
     

    In all cases any items lodged may later be returned unpaid on the account. If you want to further understand how your balance operates please contact a Customer Service Advisor on 0818 724 724 or +353 1 77 12 424.
     

    Account Transaction Screen Balance
     

    This is the screen that appears when you select an account from the initial overview screen. The balance that appears at the top of the screen is your account's opening balance on today's date amended to reflect any lodgements, withdrawals or payments made on your account today. It does not include any Debit Card transactions not yet posted to your account including those appearing in the "Pending” section of the screen.

    * Note: There may be debit card transactions which are not reflected in your 'Pending Debit Card Transactions' or 'Available Funds' where they have not yet been advised to us due to the nature in which the merchant processes debit card transactions.

     

  • What are my Pending Transactions?

    Your 'Pending Transactions' are displayed in the recent transaction screen of your account.  These are transactions which you have completed but have not yet been processed to your account. These transactions generally process to your account within a number of days after the transaction has been completed. However, the timelines can vary as this will depend on the retailer / merchant. Please note there may be debit card transactions that do not appear on this list where they have not yet been advised to us due to the nature in which the retailer / merchant processes debit card transactions.

  • Is AIB Mobile Banking secure?

    Yes. AIB Mobile Banking is a secure, safe and convenient way to manage your money on the go. The service provides the same high level of security as you enjoy on AIB Internet Banking. 


    When you initially set up, first you enter your 8-digit Registration number followed by the 3 random digits from your PAC (Personal Access Code). After this initial setup process you will only need to enter in the 3 random digits from your PAC at each subsequent log in. The set up process for the App will securely tie your Registration number to your mobile phone. You can unregister your Registration number from your phone within the App or if you have concerns of fraud you can also unregister the App via Internet Banking, Tablet Banking or by calling a Customer Service Advisor on 0818 724 724 or +353 1 77 12 424. 

    To ensure you can access your accounts over the Internet with the utmost confidence, we use the highest levels of industry standard security. As part of this security we use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information.

    AIB Mobile Banking will automatically log you out after 4 minutes of inactivity. You must be actively browsing to stay connected (i.e. switching between accounts).

    This feature aims to protect you against unauthorised access. You will need to log in again if you wish to continue using AIB Mobile Banking.
