Bank apps and privacy (Sécur'pass)


European Unions asks our banks to use a smartphone based app to validate transactions, which will replace the confirmation sms very soon. In France, sécur’pass is going to be mandatory in a few weeks time.

I believe we shouldn’t be forced to install a bank app on our smartphones since banks already collect lots of informations on our private life through payment records, and probably try to collect even more through their app.

I am wondering what is the best solution to avoid giving personal data to my bank with my iodé smartphone.

  • not installing a bank app at all ? (Use android emulation on a pc)
  • use shelter ?
  • use xprivacy ?
  • other ?

Thanks for your answers !
