About Fidelity Bank

Fidelity Bank, also known as Fidelity Bank Plc., Is a commercial bank in Nigeria. It is licensed as a commercial bank with international authorization, by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the central bank, and the National Banking Regulator.


The User Interface of the Fidelity bank Mobile App is poor, Absence of accessibility, and overall, bad user experience.

Coupled with the technical issues, users find it difficult to access some features which they believed should be available, this is because these features are not designed in the App.


The redesign process also involved extensive user testing to ensure that the app met the needs and expectations of customers. The team conducted user research and tested the app with
real users to identify and address any issues that arose.

I also went through the reviews of the App on the App Store, I selected the user problems that could
be fixed through the improvement of the App interface.

Here are some of the feedback I gathered from the research:

  1. Rebescosco: “...I will like them to improve on the app by providing transaction history to help see details of the recent past transactions at a glance.”

  2. Arinze Onuora: “They should make the app more accessible for everyone. And rearrange some buttons.”

  3. Emmanuel Anthony: “Up to-date and more detailed Analytics customer feature where I can see charts and analysis of my spending.”

  4. Dr. Koko 1: “...I wish transaction receipt of an old transaction can be regenerated for sharing.”

  5. Arinze Onuora: “...The UI is so bad. App no get swag at all. And I hate the home screen so much”.

Solution & Objectives

The redesign focused on improving the app's usability, accessibility, and overall aesthetic appeal. The team incorporated features such as fingerprint authentication, a user-friendly interface, and a simplified navigation system to make the app more user-friendly. Some of the Approaches used were:

  • Redesign the App to be aesthetically pleasing and accessible and improve user experience

  • Design a feature that helps users to check transactions done in a certain period of time

  • Design a feature that allows users to generate receipts of previous transactions

  • Design a feature that allows users to see charts and analyses of their spending
