    How do you de-register the app?
    I prefer to use my PC for online banking and just getting an OTP text works best for me.
    Once the Virgin Money app was installed (for the case of wine) I now have to use it to allow me to continue on the PC.
    I wish to de-register the app to return to the OTP verification which I understand can be done in the app. How? On the 'Mobile app access' screen I can see my registered mobile with the option of removing it. Does removing it have the effect of de-registering the app and thereby returning to the OTP method of verification?

    You can deregister the mobile by going into the settings on the PC online banking I believe :)

    It gives the same 'Mobile app access' opion as was on the mobile. I took the plunge and removed my smartphone and sure enough it's reverted back to sending an OTP to login.

    I believe it's something you can do in online banking. Under More - Mobile App Access. If this doesn't work for you, call Virgin.

    Can get better than 0.50% elsewhere
    Can you confirm where you can get that for instant access?
    Sure. Many of us have legacy instant access accounts still paying at least 1.2%. 


     
    Hence your statement saying that you can get better than 0.50% elsewhere is incorrect. You either already have it or you cannot get it.

    A bit verbose, I know but this is for the avoidance of doubt.
    As we are talking about avoidance of doubt, here is something for the avoidance of doubt:

    Nobody said that you can get better elsewhere. Also, I don't already have the interest that I can still get in the account(s) I already have. 

    So your statement saying that my statement is incorrect is incorrect 🤣🤣🤣

    @colsten, Apologies, I made a mistake. It was @typistretired who said "can get better than 0.50% elsewhere".

    I inferred that they were saying such accounts were currently available. I believe that by their question, @jimjames also read more into the comment than was actually said.

    @typistretired can defend themselves but I would say they did not mean to say, and definitely didn't say, that people can currently open instant access accounts paying more than 0.5%. They were responding to the question as to why people don't appear to be making much use of the Virgin attached savers - - to which one very reasonable answer is that people can get better than 0.50% elsewhere. The most obvious 'elsewhere' is legacy instant access accounts, but there are also current accounts as well as quasi-instant access Regular Savers that people can still open now, and then there are quite a number of accounts which might not offer instant access but do offer substantially better interest (anything from double to 6 times 0.5%) and which can be applied for by everybody. These kinds of accounts are the reason why I am not tempted to keep a penny in the Virgin attached savers.

    I pray to God we'll soon be out of those interest and stay-at-home doldrums so we can move on to more exciting discussions......

    I have just opened a fourth VM Current Account, so another grand can earn a bit extra interest . . . . . for now!

    Why would you highlight this?

    Because others have questioned how many can be opened.

    Sorry if it does not interest you.

    Ah right.

    Thought it was a stand-alone brag that risks killing a golden goose.

    My mistake
