Getting Started

  1. How do I log in to the app for the first time?
    Simply head to the App Store or the Google Play Store and search for Unity Bank to download the app if you are a first-time user. You will need to be registered for Internet Banking before being able to use the mobile banking app.

    You will need to know your member number and internet banking access code to then register on the app. You will then be prompted to set a PIN or pattern or continue using member number to log in. After this you can set some biometrics depending on your device (Touch ID or Face ID).
     
  2. Where do I find my member number?
    Your member number is also the number you use to login to Internet Banking. You can find your member number on your Statement. If you are having trouble finding your member number, please contact us on 1300 36 2000.
     
  3. How do I register for internet banking, so that I can use the app?

    You can ‘Lock Card’ if you want to temporarily stop your card e.g. if think you have misplaced it but do not want to stop it completely. You can then unlock it if you find it. You can stop your card if it is damaged, lost or stolen. You can then order a replacement card if you wish.

Biometrics

  1. Does the app support Biometrics (Face ID and Fingerprint)?
    Our app supports both Face ID & Touch ID (Fingerprint). You will be prompted to enable biometrics when you first register to the app if your device supports this.

    We do not advise using this feature if someone else's biometrics are saved on your device as they will be able to access your banking information. You can still use a PIN, pattern, or use your member number and access code if you prefer.
