The early salary feature aims to motivate clients to use its current account as their primary bank account where they get their salary paid in. Monzo Bank also came with a similar early salary feature last year.

“Early access to salaries could be a genuine lifeline for many during these tough economic times,” Nik Storonsky, founder and chief executive officer of Revolut, said in a statement on Wednesday.

The Web-based option of the Revolut account aims to provide customers with a complete overview of their transaction history and cards.

This way the customer is also enabled to use the Web App to top up the account, freeze/unfreeze their cards, block/unblock their PIN and toggle all other card security settings on or off in a few clicks, or even contact customer support via an online chat function.

Nik Storonsky, CEO and Founder at Revolut says: “Account access through a browser is highly requested by our customers, so we’re delighted to have built a safe and convenient web app that everyone can use when they need it.”

“Our customers can now access their money anywhere and at any time, even if they don’t have their phone or card, or if they simply prefer checking their account from a computer,” he added.
