The “Modo Rua” function that Nubank announced in October last year, made available to all customers of the digital bank. As the company announced this Thursday (2), the innovation brings more security for those who don’t plan to give up their cell phone during Carnival.
The tool, which was previously offered to a limited group of account holders, adds an extra layer of protection to the fintech application during testing. When enabled, it allows set maximum values for some transaction types while the user is away from home.
Payments and remittances made via PIX are among the transactions designed within the functionality, as well as Available Electronic Transfer (TED) and payment receipts. In this way, it is possible to reduce the damage in case the mobile phone is stolen or stolen.
If the user sets a limit of 50 BRL for transactions, for example, Activate Nubank’s Street Mode, all attempts involving amounts above this will require facial recognition in the bank app. This happens regardless of whether it is done by the account holder or by third parties.
Multiple Wi-Fi networks
With Expansion of mod functionality offer Path, the feature now also allows you to add multiple secure Wi-Fi networks such as work, family, and friends’ homes. Previously, it was possible to select only one, preferably the client’s home connection.
Once the limit is defined and secure networks are added, the functionality is automatically activated when the mobile phone is not connected to them, which adds an extra layer of security and makes bank fraud difficult. Reconnecting to one of them disables the feature without any action.
The method can be activated by tapping the profile icon in the upper left corner of the Nubank app home screen, pressing the “Street Mode” option and performing the configuration. More transactions such as card purchases and loans will soon gain protection.
