Bank puts app on staffers’ phones to monitor messages

Deutsche Bank is installing an app on some of its employees’ phones that lets it monitor their calls, texts and WhatsApp messages, according to the Financial Times.

The bank has spent the last few weeks installing the app from US firm Movius on work phones so that its compliance teams can keep an eye on communications with clients, says the FT, citing sources. Deutsche Bank has not commented.

The move comes as regulators in the US, UK and Germany all step up their interest in client communications.—ft
