The new web interface comes equipped with several unique design features.

German digital bank N26 is now accessible via web browsers as well as through an app. The new site aims for simplicity and is based on feedback from the bank’s users.

Ever proud of its design, N26 says the new site carries a clean interface that will allow customers to manage their finances with ease. It has a dark mode to reduce distractions and limit strain on the eyes at night.

Furthermore, the web interface offers users a discreet mode, in acknowledgement of the fact that more and more users are logging in to their bank in shared workspaces, cafes and so on. The discreet mode masks account activity as well as account balance within the web browser, and can be enabled and disabled with a single click.

Monthly statements, account information and IBAN numbers may be downloaded using the web browser as PDFs or CSV files.

Additional features are planned for later this summer.

N26 is now bringing the best banking experience from the mobile app to the web browser on any screen,” said Valentin Stalf, CEO and co-founder of N26. “We are excited and proud to offer our customers special features such as the discreet mode, and to deliver the same unrivaled N26 user experience across all platforms.”

N26 rival Monzo recently launched a web service to allow users to get online in emergencies, but it is a basic interface meant only for when users are unable to access their smartphones.
