NAB’s latest Android app will suck your battery dry

Category: News

NAB has acknowledged issues with an update to its banking app for Android that chokes the user’s device CPU and drains its battery.

Not only were they taking money away from their home loan customers for years, now they’re sucking your battery dry too!

Users are reporting the app can drain up to 50% of their phone’s battery life within a matter of hours.

NAB’s solution for now appears to be uninstalling the app and requesting users use mobile web banking instead.

The issue appears to affect Samsung devices running Android 9 more than others, but has been confirmed to aggressively drain most Android devices in general.
