Meet the new Vanguard app. We’ve updated and refined our features to make it easier than ever to invest from your mobile device. Along with our sleek new look, you can also log in to your accounts with Fingerprint ID. We’ll be rolling out new updates every few weeks, but if there’s something you want us to build, you can let us know in our Support tab.
Use the app to do the following:
• Access an overview of your accounts to check your total assets and balances
• Dive deeper to track your account performance, cost basis details, or day change information for each of your holdings
• Make trades, deposit checks directly into your accounts, and review your transaction history
• Find help, update your login preferences, and leave feedback via the Support tab
The Vanguard App was overdue for an upgrade. Over the past few years, 2 small mobile teams took on the feat of creating a next generation user experience, built on modernized APIs, for self-directed investors. Upon successfully migrating all users from the legacy app to the modern app in October of 2021, a big area of focus for the mobile team became optimizing the app for the Personal Advisor® and Vanguard Digital Advisor® service offering. My team worked on adapting the web experience for mobile native, prioritizing the highest user value for the MVP for ~300k clients.
