Making it easy to manage your money

As the first bank in the UK to install a computer in 1959 and an early adopter of 'on-line' banking in 1985 - it's no surprise that today Bank of Scotland has the digital tools to help you keep on top of your finances.

If you want to track your spending, check your credit score or freeze your card you can do all of this and more online or on the Bank of Scotland app.
