Is the MyFLASH app safe to use?

Yes, at FLASH we use world class security standards to ensure that your money is safe. We have different levels of security – with the MyFLASH app you need to log in with the PIN that you created. This prevents anyone who has your phone from using your FLASH balance and making payments – only you should know your PIN.

Is my FLASH balance safe if my phone is stolen?

Don’t worry your FLASH balance is safe – even if someone has your phone they will not be able to open your MyFLASH app because they don’t know your unique FLASH PIN. When you get a new phone you will be able to download the MyFLASH app onto your new phone and log in with your FLASH username and password. Your FLASH balance will be available and you will be able to make payments and transact in the MyFLASH app like before.
