A Little About Capitec app
What is the Capitec app?
The Capitec app is a mobile banking app that allows you to do online banking, manage your accounts and transfer funds on your smartphone.
There are many benefits of using the Capitec app including:
- You can access your credit card account and check the information about it in real-time through the app. You can also view recent transactions and payments made from this account.
- The mobile banking service allows you to set up alerts for specific transactions so that you’ll receive notifications once they happen on your behalf. This means that if someone makes a payment into one of your accounts, then an alert will be sent to let you know about it straight away rather than having to wait until later in the day when online statements are available online or via SMS text message updates (if these are enabled).
Is the Capitec app safe?

All sensitive information sent between your device and their servers is encrypted with TLS 1.2 or higher protocol standards together with a 2048-bit RSA key or ECDHE_RSA key exchange algorithm as well as HMAC SHA384 signature algorithm as per industry standard specifications.

What’s the difference between the Capitec app and Internet banking?
The main difference between the Capitec app and Internet banking is the device you use to access your account. The Capitec app is available for both Android and iOS devices, whereas internet banking is only for use on desktop or laptop computers.
The convenience of having immediate access to your finances from anywhere at any time is what makes the Capitec App so popular with our customers. With internet banking, you need to be in front of a computer and have access to a Wi-Fi network or public hotspot if you are not at home.
This means that when away from home, such as when traveling on holiday overseas or even just going out for lunch at work – it can be very inconvenient if your bank does not have an ATM close by (or even one nearby). In contrast, the Capitec App allows its users full freedom in terms of where they want their money – whether they are at home or out roaming around town!
The Capitec app is convenient and secure.
The Capitec app is convenient and secure. It’s available on the App Store, so you can download it in just a few taps. Once you install the app, you’ll be able to use it from anywhere and at any time—without having to worry about your card getting stolen or lost.
You can also make payments from anywhere using your phone; there’s no need for you to go through an ATM machine every time you want to transfer money or pay someone back. You can also check your balance and limits using this app, which makes it easy for you to keep track of your finances when they’re right in front of your face!
