OCBC Bank announced today that is has enabled 1.8 million of its digital customers in Singapore to use the SingPass as an alternative login to access the full suite of digital banking services. They claim to be the first bank to enable this new feature, and it has been made available its customer since 4th July 2020.

The need to remember multiple access codes and PINs is eliminated, while enabling customers to securely access their digital banking services. In order to use this, customers must download the SingPass Mobile app if they have not already done so.

Managed by the Government Technology Agency (GovTech), the SingPass Mobile app allows users to transact with over 60 government agencies online securely. More than 1.6 million Singapore residents today use the SingPass Mobile app to access government e-services including checking their Central Provident Fund (CPF) account balances, filing taxes and applying for public housing. Many now also use the app for SafeEntry logins at venues to facilitate contact tracing.
