Following a successful beta testing phase with UK businesses, FinTech Curve has fully launched to all consumers within the UK.
Curve offers an app that allows users to link multiple accounts to a ‘Curve MasterCard’. Users can then use the app to decide which account is used to make payments, eliminating the need to carry multiple cards, as well as the need for a specific Curve current account. Curve aims to turn its app into a mobile control centre for all a user’s financial products and accounts.

As well as being able to manage the card overall, another feature the Curve app offers is the ability to ‘lock and block’ the card in the event it is lost or stolen.
RFi Group data indicates that this feature is potentially highly valued by consumers, with just under 1 in 5 indicating that it is in the top 3 features they would most want to see added to a mobile banking app.
