Bank Negara Malaysia creates mobile apps for consumers

Bank Negara Malaysia has introduced three new mobile applications to help consumers make more informed financial decisions.

The mobile applications, MyBNM, BNM MyLINK and MyTabung, aims to provide consumers with the latest developments on financial matters, give them tools to plan and manage their finances and exercise their rights.

MyBNM is the official Bank Negara Malaysia mobile application that allows consumers to keep abreast with the latest financial news including notices and announcements, speeches and interviews, press releases, financial fraud alerts and foreign exchange rates.

BNM MyLINK is a one-stop mobile application which links consumers and financial service providers in Malaysia. It provides a directory of conventional and Islamic banking, insurance and takaful companies as well as SMEs which allow consumers to make enquiries, obtain advice and address their complaints.

MyTabung helps individuals to create a personal or household budget. Users can capture incomes, savings and recurring expenses with an on-the-spot display of the user’s financial standing and spending patterns. Individuals can also obtain financial advice and budgeting tips to guide them in practicing prudent financial management.


The apps are available in both Bahasa Malaysia and English, and can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
