People are apparently so comfortable with mobile banking apps that they're now using them at work, during client meetings and even on dates, according to a new survey by Chase and Princeton, N.J.-based Braun Research.

Respondents in the survey of 1,502 U.S. adults said they're using mobile banking apps in a variety of places, with work being the most popular location (54%). Restaurants and checkout lines were also popular, with 39% and 38% of the respondents, respectively, saying they use mobile banking apps there. Coffee and smoking breaks (37%), commuting (28%) and waiting to pick up children from school (24%) were common as well. Notably, 17% of the respondents said they've used their mobile banking apps while on dates, and 10% said they used them while in meetings with clients.

A third of the respondents to the survey, which was conducted from May 19 to May 25, 2015, said they're banking on their phones and online more now than they were a year ago. Banking via websites or online portals appears to be the preferred method, with 70% reporting using those channels, though about half (47%) of the respondents said they're using mobile apps or tablets as well. The preference for banking via websites and online portals versus apps spanned the millennial, Gen X and baby boomer generations, the survey found.
