Fake mobile banking apps

June 2018

We are aware of incidents where fake mobile banking apps have been created, including ones that claim to be from ANZ.  Some customers have downloaded these apps allowing fraudsters to steal sensitive data.  

To check if you have the right version of our mobile banking app, ANZ goMoney, check the app’s listing in the Google Play or Apple App Store.

Google Play

 ‘Offered by’ should be  ‘ANZ NZ’

Apple App Store

 ‘Seller’ should be ‘ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited’

If you think you have downloaded a fake mobile banking app, delete it immediately.  
If you have inadvertently provided your details, please call us immediately on 0800 269 296 (international +64 4 470 3142).

The NZ CERT provides some great information on cyber security for your mobile phone and recommends you only download apps from the official app stores, delete apps that you don’t use, and check permissions and setting on all your apps.
