How To Use UBA Leo, The UBA ChatBanking AI – Review

A few weeks ago, UBA launched a new AI system dubbed ‘UBA ChatBanking’ aka ‘UBA Leo’. UBA Leo simply put is a new way of making online transactions or internet banking without none other but the Facebook app. Now we have decided to run 2 tests; one using the native Facebook messenger app for android and another using the opera mini app which seems to be everyone’s favorite browser for data saving.

How to Use UBA LEO on Facebook’s Native App

Now let’s start with downloading the Facebook and Facebook messenger app if you don’t already have it. You can download Facebook app for Android here and Messenger here. If your phone is the low memory type then you should download Facebook Lite. IOS users can download Facebook here and Messenger here.

Open your Facebook App and Search for these exact words “UBA ChatBanking” and click on UBA LEO’s page.

Hit the Message Icon which takes you into your Facebook messenger app and send Leo a message like “Hello Leo” or  Hi Leo”.

SIDE NOTE: UBA Leo responds in seconds.

Tell Leo what you wish to do e.g “Hi i want to load credit” or “I want to send bae 2000 Naira”.

Leo responds rather dramatically with an “Oh dear….” message.

Now this part is easy, send ‘Yes’ to all UBA Leo’s questions and send him your NUBAN account number.

UBA Leo would send you a One-Time Pin(OTP) via SMS to the number linked to your UBA account. You’re to send that OTP right back to UBA Leo on Facebook Messenger.

UBA Leo would then proceed to send you his “terms and conditions” document. Agree to it by sending “Yes” and then you’re registered in UBA Leo’s memory.

SIDE NOTE: You would only need to do all of this once per UBA account as UBA Leo is brilliant enough not to forget any of those details.

Now let’s get back to why we’re here. Tell UBA Leo exactly what you want, keep it short and simple e.g “I’d like to send 10k to Ali Simbi Agbo 1234567890 any name bank ”.

Leo being so wise would immediately realize the details you’re missing and ask you to send in the transaction remark.

 

UBA Leo proceeds to summarize the transaction that you’re about to make just so you can proof read to be sure about all of the details you’ve entered.

Now you have 3 options; hit “Pay” “edit” or “cancel”. You can also send whichever option you choose as a message to UBA Leo.

Upon hitting the “Pay”, UBA Leo would send you an OTP via SMS which you’re to send back to UBA Leo on Facebook messenger.

SIDE NOTE: You are limited to N20,000 only on your first week of meeting Leo.

UBA Leo would verify your OTP and send you a message  to let you know if your transaction was success or unsuccessful.

You will also get your usual alert if the transaction is successful.
