How do I keep my Apple Watch app secure?
To keep your bunq account as secure as possible, we recommend you always lock your Apple Watch with a passcode.
Once you setup a passcode, you’ll notice that you won’t have to enter your Apple Watch code every time you access the bunq app. This will save you time, while still being safe with your Apple Watch wrist detection feature. If you leave your watch laying around or happen to accidentally lose it, your Apple Watch sensors will know you aren’t wearing it and automatically lock your device!
Another feature that can bring you more ease of mind is “Unlock with iPhone”. When activated, unlocking your iPhone will also unlock your Apple Watch.
You can check and enable security features of your Apple Watch directly in the Settings app of your device.
