How we will contact you 🤗
We’ll contact you through the App, or through your mobile or email. It’s important for you to let us know if any of your details change.
1. USING THE XINJA APP 📱
You can download the Xinja App from the AppStore and Play Store.
You must make sure that you update the App you are using each time we release a new version. This will help us to keep your personal information safe. 🔒
What can I do using the Xinja App?
The Xinja App is used to access your Xinja Accounts including:
- view the balance of your Xinja Accounts 💸
- view the transaction history of your Xinja Accounts
- arrange a Pay Anyone (referred to as “Send Money” on the App) Instruction
Please note: “Xinja Accounts” doesn’t include the Xinja Prepaid card.
The full terms and conditions relating to these services are outlined in the Xinja Account Terms and Conditions.
How can I log into the Xinja App?
When you access the App for the first time and register your details, you must select a 6 digit App Passcode. You will need to use this App Passcode to log onto the App. You can also set up biometrics supported by your Device. This includes using your fingerprint or face ID. You should try to memorise your App Passcode and you must not:
- write or record your App Passcode on or near your Device;
- give your App Passcode to anyone else including your family or friends
- use a number that is easy to guess (like your birthday, consecutive numbers or the same 6 digits)
- allow someone else to see you entering the App Passcode
You must let us know immediately if you think someone else has access to your App Passcode.
What happens if I forget my App Passcode? 🤔
You may reset your App Passcode using the Xinja App if you have forgotten it.
What if I forget to log out of the Xinja App?
The App will lock automatically if you haven’t used it for 2 minutes. You will need to use the App Passcode (or biometrics if you have set them up) to log back into the App.
Does the Xinja App use ‘two factor authentication’?
Some transactions using the Xinja App will require ‘two factor authentication’ for your protection. These transactions include:
- payments to a new payee
- updating your App Passcode
If a ‘two factor authentication’ is required, Xinja will text you a ‘one off’ verification code to the latest mobile number we have in our records.
What are your obligations when using the Xinja App?
It’s your obligation to keep your Device and App Passcode secure and safe and you must:
- only use the Xinja App for activities related to your banking
- lock your Device when not in use and take all other reasonable steps necessary to stop unauthorised use of the Xinja App on your Device
- take reasonable care to protect your App Passcode
- not copy, modify, attempt to reverse engineer, hack into or otherwise act fraudulently or maliciously in relation to the Xinja App
- not override the software lockdown on your Device (commonly referred to as ‘rooting’)
- not allow any other person’s biometric information to be stored on your Device
- notify Xinja immediately if you suspect that your Device has become subject to ‘mobile phone porting’ (eg if your Device is suddenly or unexpectedly disconnected without your permission)
- notify Xinja immediately if your Device is lost or stolen
- update your Device by downloading any new versions of the App as soon as we tell you that a new version has been released. You must also delete any previous versions
If you don’t comply with your obligations as set out in this document, you will be liable for all transactions that occur even if you have not authorised them. This means any terms and conditions that protect you for unauthorised transactions will not apply and you could incur significant loss or liability for future transactions.
When is the Xinja App Available?
We want to ensure that the Xinja App is available at all times but sometimes you may not have access to the App due to:
- planned and unplanned system outages
- us suspending or permanently terminating your access or use of the Xinja App.
What is Xinja’s liability for your use of the App?
We will not be liable for:
- any failure to make the Xinja App (or any part of it) available to you due to circumstances beyond our control eg. your Device not having access to the internet or disruptions to internet network in your area
- any periods during which the Xinja App is unavailable due to system outages. We will try our best to give you as much notice as possible of scheduled outages.
- any loss or liability incurred by you if we consider, in our reasonable opinion, that you have contributed to that loss or liability.
We make no representation, guarantee or agreement of any kind in relation to the functionality of the Xinja App nor do we guarantee that any virus infections or other software damages will not be caused to your Device.
What must I do if I suspect that my App Passcode has been breached?
If you believe or suspect your App Passcode has been breached, you must contact Xinjarati as soon as possible.
Once you have notified us, your liability for future electronic funds transfer transactions using that App Passcode will be limited. Please refer to Xinja Account Terms and Conditions for more details.
If Xinjarati is not available at the time you become aware of the breach or suspected breach (for example because you are calling outside our Standard Business Hours), Xinja will be liable for any losses occurring during the period that we were unavailable, providing you notify us within a reasonable timeframe of Xinjarati becoming available again.
If you report a breach or suspected breach of your App Passcode, Xinja will acknowledge your report and you should record this acknowledgment.
