I’ve noticed what could be quite a serious bug in the payments section of the Android Starling Bank app.
I added another account under my own name/photo in the “Pay” section of the app today; under my name is now two accounts “Virgin Money” and “NatWest Savings.”
I decided, bearing that the NatWest Savings account was newly added to Starling that after selecting the option to “Pay” and adding the amount to transfer that I desired to look at my photo gallery to double check the NatWest accounts sort and account number.
Upon switching back to the Starling app, it automatically changes the payment destination to the first account in my list, this being “Virgin Money.”
I imagine such a bug could easily cause a payment to be sent into the wrong account.
