I have saved hard to pay off my mortgage and now I am able to do so Atom bank are not allowing me without a list of additional proofs as to there the money is from. I am outraged by this. Having worked all my life and payed full taxes as PAYE, paying high interest rates to Atom bank on my mortgage and a high leaving fee they have the cheek to tell me to prove how I am paying my mortgage off. They have been happy to take my money with interest each month. The money is being paid from my Bank account which is paid to me by my employer. Who do they think they are? I will NEVER bank with them again. Greedy, distrusting and distrustful. I would give them zero stars if this was an option. I DO NOT recommend Atom bank.

Opened an account 10 months ago. Tried to log on to update my linked current account details , and the App. didn't work. Message saying go to PlayStore to update the App. so I tried. NO NEW APP. AVAILABLE for my device. They had made App. obsolete for Android devices operating on older systems , but NOT bothered to properly notify customers. I downloaded the App. on my mobile 'phone , but it would not recognise my registered face despite 30+ attempts. Their biometrics is crude and rubbish. Most frustrating and disappointing banking experience in 40 years of banking. Avoid this company and look for similar rates elsewhere.

Watch out for version of operating system you're on

Have been a savings customer for a year or two. Based on interest rate you can't fault them. However the old version of the app was atrocious, obviously written by a child. But they have released a new version which is marginally...

Have been a savings customer for a year or two. Based on interest rate you can't fault them. However the old version of the app was atrocious, obviously written by a child. But they have released a new version which is marginally better.
But as a result one of my devices is no longer supported.
That left me with just smart phone access.
The speed is so slow it's verging on unusable. I'm on Android version 8. It turns out they only fully support the two latest versions.
This is totally unacceptable. I have NO other speed problems with ANY other app.
My device will not be upgraded (Moto), and I'm certainly not buying a new device just because of Atom.
The difference in interest rates is marginal so any new money is going elsewhere.
If national interest rates weren't so low, it wouldn't stand a chance with performance like this. It's entered the market at a good time for them and has effectively a captive audience.

Avoid like the plague

Wish I could give 0 stars to this company. 
After signing up to an account with a compatible device and handing over a large sum of money, this company decides to remove support for my device just prior to my account maturing from its fixed period, with no prior warning preventing me accessing my account... Furthermore they do not list which devices are compatible only a list of OS which may be currently supported and no details of how long they will be supported for so i am now expected to go and buy a new device which will probably cost as much as any interest i have earnt in the last 2 years just so i can access my money. 
This seems very much like it could be a tactic to keep hold of a customers money for a bank in financial struggles... if i were you i would stay well away!

UPDATE:
I have now been told:
"I understand how frustrating it is when a device that has worked previously no longer supports the App you are using. This can happen when a device or App upgrade takes place. Because of this possibility we do advise on page 3 of your App T&Cs, under the heading Device Compatibility, that customers make sure that they own a compatible device with a compatible operating system for the entire term of any products they may have with us."

Dont try and blame a customer when they conplain... I have kept my device which was compatible for the term of the contract inline with your Terms and conditions, YOU have moved the goalposts!

I became so frustrated with my high street bank and was looking for a new bank with a new look and vision. I found it in Atom bank. Moved commercial mortgage business over to them to test them out and now talking to the same guys to give them the rest of my business. It was so painless and took up very little of my valuable time.
Well done Atom. It’s time to expand in Scotland because I am always recommending you guys with no fear to my reputation.

Took a mortgage out with Atom Bank with an excellent rate (best in the market at the time). Fantastic communication from start to finish, everything went smoothly (you can't say that for a lot of mortgages), excellent customer service.
The app is great with many ways on how to log in making it very personal for those who use it. Everything is held within the app so there is no need to keep paper copies - saving the planet!
Best experience i've had with any bank.

As a relatively new bank, you are showing the traditional banks how to offer and support competitive fixed savings products in the market. The investments are backed by FSCS and you are continuing to implement SCA in line with PSD2 as part of your strategy to provide ongoing market leading products. Keep up the good work.
