Meanwhile, to protect the interests of its clients, the country’s largest lender, the State Bank of India (SBI) has launched a new and improved security feature – “SIM Binding” in Yono and Yono Lite.
The new version of these platforms will protect customers against various digital frauds. With the SIM link function, YONO and YONO Lite will only work on devices with a SIM card of mobile numbers registered with the Bank.
To access the new version of Yono and YONO Lite with enhanced security features, users will need to update their mobile app and complete the one-time registration process on those apps.
