If mobile banking was considered to be the hottest thing until yesterday, look at what ICICI bank is innovating on Twitter. The bank enables social transfers; allows customers to tweet money to friends using ICICIBankPay, across any bank in India.
The bank’s social-first attitude empowers customers to freely transfer money, check account balance, track recent transactions and recharge prepaid phones.
Is social media banking safe?
Banks are expected to put safety before innovation and ICICI has cracked the code. The social feature has several layers of security. Ofcourse, the bank has mastered this overtime with its constant innovations (ICICI Pocket application) on social media.
As far as data is concerned, Twitter is just a messaging platform and all data is parked on ICICI Bank’s own server, making the transactions absolutely secure.
