Vanguard’s recent update to its Android app stripped the ability to trade plus other features, outraging investors who use it to buy and sell stocks, ETFs and mutual funds.
Angry Vanguard customers are taking to Alphabet‘s (GOOGL) Google Play app store to complain. They’re also downrating the app and offering tips to roll back to the previous version. The Vanguard app is now rated 1.9 out of 5 stars on Google Play.
The app, updated this week, adds the ability to log in with your fingerprint. But it takes away trading and other account management features for certain account types. Attempts to trade refer users to Vanguard’s website. The app says: “Account type is currently unavailable on this app.”
“The recent update removed 95% of the previous application functionality. Why even have an app if you need to go to the web to do anything?” wrote
