  • For Finnish Bank ID: Breaking out of iframe and improved responsiveness on bank selection page

Breaking out of iframe and improved responsiveness on bank selection page

This release includes two user experience improvements. During the change from the old bank interface (between Nets and the bank) to the new interface, several of the banks will not allow the usage of iframe. To have a consistent user experience all bank clients will break out of the iframe after the user has selected his/her bank. This will happen in the third step of the flow below (this sample is with Handelsbanken):

 In addition, the bank selection page (in step 2) has been updated to be fully responsive.
