mBank in schools – we talked to students about banking technology and security on the internet

Since you are no doubt a regular reader of our mBlog , you are already well educated in the area of ​​various banking “complexities” and product terminology. But sometimes you said, “If I had already learned at school, I did not have to deal with what the RPSN is right now, just before asking for a loan …”? Fortunately, it’s easy to find out, for example, by reading the blog in the mobile app that you have on your smartphone with you all the time. We also talked about the other benefits of digital technology in banking with students from several secondary schools, and we believe our students enjoyed our lectures as well as we did.

And we enjoyed it too! A similar feeling was seen last month by a total of 35 senior bank managers at 15 secondary schools in Bohemia and Moravia thanks to the Czech Banking Association (CBA) project. mBank wrapped up a snack and sent Robert Chrystof , Sales and Distribution Manager of mBank for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and Bronislav Dvoracek , Director of Product Development and Services for mBank for the Czech Republic and Slovakia. You can see the brochure on an introductory photo with great students from the Neveklov Business Academy.

The topic of digital technology, safe behavior in the online environment and the future of banking is without a doubt the area that needs to be spoken. Digital technology is a common part of our lives and finding a high school student without a smart phone is almost impossible. 45% of students surveyed took the opportunity to extend the online banking application to everyday stuff such as a calendar, phone book, or social networking. Note that with mBank banking you can make payments without knowing your account number via the contact list via SMS or via Facebook;)

The on-line environment offers, besides countless benefits, the real risks we are regularly reporting on blogs in our articles about safety. Even 45% of students encountered an Internet attack attempt , which is a great reason to talk and warn about such attempts. 3% of the respondents opened such an email, others happily deleted it or ignored it. However, the danger is not only in emails, but also in SMS and social networks , so do not hesitate if we were not in your school and read at least our article that even a friend’s report can cost you a lot of money .

Though young people welcome new technologies, 57% of students think that less than 10 years ago, physical money will not disappear from the market, and a third of all respondents believe that we will always be paying this way. One fifth of students, on the contrary, think that physical money in the next few years will only be in museums.

” Moving money from wallets to computers and mobile phones is an untenable trend. It was great to see that today’s new generation of adolescents is well prepared for this fundamental change in the nature of finances. For me, it was a very nice opportunity to meet young people who have not yet built up banking prejudices and also to help raise awareness of financial security , “says Robert Chrystof, commercial manager of mBank.
