N26 Closes US Operation

“For the past two years, we’ve had the pleasure of providing our 100% mobile banking experience the world loves to hundreds of thousands of people in the US. It is with gratitude and appreciation to all who have joined in our journey that we have made the decision to sharpen our focus on our European business. As a result, N26 products will no longer be available to customers in the US, and we will be closing all accounts.”
