GT Bank launches secure online banking app on Facebook, aiming at over 6.7 million Nigerians on the leading social networking site.
According to Segun Agbaje, GTBank CEO and Managing Director, it is the bank’s goal to ensure secure and convenient financial transactions of their stakeholders. GTBank has been a leader within the financial services sector of the country and is the first to use social media to reach its account holders and over 950,000 fans, the largest in all African banks.
The bank also added other services like GTBank Mobile Money for money transfer and bills payments, Fast Track for withdrawals using debit cards, GTCrea8 eSavers for undergraduates, and GTBank e-Account for salary earners.
GTBank’s alternative banking channels were given a Payment Card Industry Standards Council certification for meeting the acceptable operational and technical requirements to prevent fraud, hacks, and other identity theft.
GTBank’s new Facebook application seems to be unavailable as of this time.

Segun Agbaje, Managing Director/CEO of Guaranty Trust Bank: “The Bank’s other recent introductions include GTBank Mobile Money, a highly secure application that allows customers and non GTBank customers perform transfers and payments from their mobile phones.”
