ABN Amro app for Android mistakenly asks for root access




The Android app ABN Amro calls since the latest update to root access. It is an error in the code is accidentally slipped, says ABN Amro. Next week issued an update that should solve the problem.

Many users of the ABN Amro app has been noticed that the update, which was rolled out Thursday, asks for root access. Thus users complain on Google Play that no conceivable reason why the application should get root access. However, it is a mistake, says Karen de Vries of ABN Amro. “Unfortunately, the code contains an error, causing this message appears at customers with an Android phone that retted,” said de Vries. Customers without root get no mention.

According to De Vries is an error in the part of the code which checks whether a user has root access. “We want to know for our technical support,” says De Vries. “Our customer will know which device a customer and whether that is retted.” However, the erroneous amendment has the effect of actually access is requested.

The bank hopes to roll where the error is resolved. An update early next week “We understand that this is confusing for our customers,” says De Vries.
