RBS says technical issues blocking mobile apps

Mar 28, 2013

(AP)—British bank RBS says technical issues have prevented customers from logging into its mobile applications—another in a series of computer glitches that has hit the struggling institution.

The bank says it is working to fix the problem, and that no other systems are affected. But Thursday's troubles are an unwelcome reminder of last year's system problems at the taxpayer-owned bank.

Last year, a week-long online failure meant some customers of RBS-owned NatWest and were unable pay bills, receive salary payments and saw delays in closing home purchases because money was not being credited to accounts. At the time, the bank said a failed software upgrade caused the problems.

RBS was largely nationalized during the 2008 and remains 82 percent-owned by British taxpayers.
