Revolut will start blocking jalbroken/rooted devices

This is unacceptable. Whether a device is to be rooted, jailbroken or not is at the discretion of its owner.

I’m not a Revolut customer yet but when I am, I expect Revolut not to interfere with whatever policy I choose to implement on my device.

The latest app still does not allow jailbroken devices. I’m unable to access my funds anymore. I wanted to buy a new phone to install the Revolut app on it but it’s impossible to pay for it without the Revolut app (3D-Secure). I wanted to cancel the Revolut account for this reason but the support told me that I need to first transfer my funds elsewhere and for that I need the app. Catch 22.

You can use your cards to withdraw or transfer your funds. Then you can close it.

Is it version 7.36 ? Can anyone else confirm also?

For online payments above 250 EUR using cards, 3D-Secure is required by EU regulation, and Revolut’s 3D-Secure allows approving the payment through the Revolut app only.

Yes, it was 7.36. In the meantime today Revolut released 7.37 which doesn’t allow jailbroken devices as well.

Ok, I must correct myself. It’s possible to get to the account temporarily/one time. I removed the app for good with all its data stored in iCloud (Setting->General->iPad Storage->Revolut->Delete), installed again (7.37) and it works now. I got in. I went to another app and when I opened back Revolut I was stopped on the Jailbroken screen again.

I’ve 7.36 (Play) working fine on rooted android 7

edit: just checked Play store and Revolut has disappeared from my list of installed apps. what are they at? back to apkmirror it seems for next stable release

I disagree with this bad idea of revolut to block rooted devices, if they will block us rooted I will switch to another service, I hope revolut reconsider this failing idea.

I updated from 7.32 to 7.37 on non-rooted LineageOS 16 (unlocked bootloader), works fine.

Does jailbreak detection tweaks work with Revolut? I used UnSub and JailProtect with my old bank and it worked well.

anyone with root successfully upgrade to 38.2?

no idea what was upgraded since we aren’t supplied with a logical change log.
