VTB Bank has placed a second application in the App Store to replace the one that was removed. He fell under sanctions in the United States, and Apple removed his projects from the App Store, including VTB Online, in order not to risk it.
The new application, like the first (“Balance Online”), is disguised – there is no mention of VTB either in the name or in the interface. VTB customers received SMS messages from the bank with a link to “Prime Balance”. Its description states the following: “The Prime Balance mobile application for iPhone will help you fully manage your finances, where you can view the balance on cards and accounts at any time, quickly transfer money to loved ones and easily top up your mobile phone account, and all this in a convenient interface “.
The Balance Online application, which was a copy of VTB Online, was removed from the App Store. Probably, this happened due to the fact that the Apple moderators nevertheless noticed the mention of VTB in it. Probably, the bank “did” work on the mistakes, and it will not work to find something like this in Prime Balance. The application was published by Unicom LLC, which is not formally affiliated with VTB.
