How secure is the app for Apple Watch?

We do everything we can to make banking with us secure and the Ulster Bank app for Apple Watch has been rigorously tested to make sure this is safe.

The watch has to be in close proximity with its paired iPhone for the app to work. The watch and the phone connect via encrypted Bluetooth (range approx. 33ft). Should the watch and the phone lose connectivity with each other the app will lock and cannot be used until the connection with the iPhone is re-established.

Provided you have opted to set up a passcode for your Apple Watch, once it loses contact with your wrist, you can only gain access to the app once you enter the correct passcode for Apple Watch.

The Ulster Bank for Apple Watch app will only be available if the paired iPhone is not jailbroken or was not previously jailbroken.
