I have recently been working on a new internal application for my family’s insurance agency and I knew I wanted to force a secured connection. Being an insurance agency, there are various rules and regulations regarding data security that you can’t take for granted. We use SSL connections for all of our web applications and I needed to force this new application to use HTTPS.
It seems as though everyone has a favorite banking application these days and today my favorite app failed me. In the year of 2013, consumers simply demand convenience from their mobile applications and consumers view mobile apps as an extension of the business whom provides it. It is for these very reasons that Chase and other financial institutions allow you to deposit checks online through their websites or mobile apps.
