    Hi there

    I've recently registered for online banking and I've downloaded my banking app on the android store. Hsbc banking app.

    They said my mobile network operator might charge me for accessing the app? I'm with O2 tesco mobile.

    Can they really charge me just for accessing the app?!

    Thanks

    They meant the data used to access the app when you're using mobile data, not explicitly the app itself. The app will only use a very small amount of data anyway.

    Yes, over wifi it would be completely free. It will hardly use any of your 1 GB when using it through mobile data, so you don't really need to worry about that. Your phone settings should tell you how much mobile data each app has used and have a switch to turn it off if necessary.

    Thank you very much!
