Here are five ways to ensure your BPI account stays safe:

✔️ Change Your BPI Online Password Regularly

BPI Online App - BPI Online Change Password

Other features coming soon to the new app include mobile BPI check deposits, real-time bill payments, cash withdrawals via QR, saving favorite transactions, and more product applications.

Meanwhile, you can keep using the old BPI Mobile app until further notice. Since the new BPI app hasn’t fully rolled out its new features, keep your old BPI app for now.
