BECU Mobile App Required Update

Updated Feb. 24, 2023 – We released a new version of the mobile app with enhanced security features at the end of 2022. Beginning March 9, we'll require all app users to be on this version.

If you have automatic updates enabled in your device settings, you don't have to do anything: your BECU app should be up to date.

System Requirements Have Also Changed

With the release of the new app version, the minimum OS requirements to use the BECU mobile app have also changed. Your device's OS must meet the version requirements below in order for the app to update and function properly:

  • Apple devices: iOS 13 or higher
  • Android devices: 8.0 or higher

You can see what OS version your device is using in the Settings. For more information, visit our System Requirements page.

Why the Updates Are Required

We're committed to safeguarding our members' accounts, and this new version of the mobile app will strengthen our ability to protect members from fraud and other malicious activity. Outdated software and operating systems can be vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks.

To protect all your accounts, cybersecurity experts recommend keeping your device updated with the most recent version of any banking or financial apps you use. With the increase of cybersecurity threats, ensuring that your apps and your device's OS* stay up to date is essential in preventing hackers from gaining access to your information and accounts.

*Some members may not be able to update their OS because Apple and Google (Android) are no longer supporting their older devices. Those members will still be able to access Online Banking from the website using their mobile device browser where all features are available except mobile deposit.
