Default What's the easiest/best UK bank account to get?

Which are the easiest to get?
Giving ID and everything is OK.
Would prefer an account where you DIDN'T have to give a mug shot on mobile.

I'm guessing otherwise you have to go into a branch to open an account?

Thanks.

I found Revoult was pretty easy and straight forward to set up on a mobile device.
It DID ask for a mug shot along with a photo of an ID, this is to verify it's you and you have ID proving you live at the address given.
Another thing to note is every time you log in on a new device you WILL need to provide another mug shot.
If someone has set up the bank account for you and you then want to access the account from your device, you'll need that mugshot again, so I cast a selfie I had provided by them on my TV and used that and it worked.
So I now have sole access to the bank account they set up for me in their name!

It has worked for 2 of my friends now. I think its 50% luck, 50% lighting - you need a dark room not to have light glare on the TV screen.

With Revoult it even says "Don't worry about how you look, our bot's won't judge" so they're not even verifying the pictures with people, its robots.

Some will say thats easier to get past, some people might disagree.

I personally think it's easier to fool a robot to a person!

Most high street bank will ask you to verify your identity f2f at branch. You can get online bank accounts which are linked to 3rd party vendors. There are a lot of options.

I tried this and wasn't working.

Most likely need to get the lighting right.

TBH I think it was pot luck! Im not sure if I'd even be able to achieve it again...

I've now changed my work process - instead of having the friend set up the account on their phone and then you try log in on yours. I now pick up a cheap iPhone, say like an iPhone 5 or 6, (or Android whatever) something less than 30/40, to keep costs down...

Have the accomplice/friend open the app and set up the account on that device, then the account is connected to that phone.

So you would have multiple phones connected to their corresponding eBay accounts along with a pay as you go SIM cards with each number connected to each eBay account...
