Customers were advised to dial *120*2345# on their mobile phone for cellphone banking in the interim.

It has since updated customers with repeated messages that it was investigating the issue.

Standard Bank informed MyBroadband the problems related to logging into its mobile banking app and Internet banking had been resolved.

“Our technicians worked tirelessly to restore services to these banking channels,” the bank said.

“Regrettably, efforts to restore these services to their full functionality took longer than expected. For this, we sincerely apologise.”
