Default Mobile IP tracking, fingerprinting.

Hi. I have a question regarding IP and device tracking, device fingerprinting from bank apps on phone. I use Monzo (UK MOBILE ONLY bank), so does my whole family and kids. It can only be accessed via a phone app, no PC or real life options to check your balance or make a transfer. I was wondering if those mobile apps and banks track or store my IP address somehow even when I switch the location off or use another internet connection. Obviously I don't wanna send alerts to the bank that the same IP is logging into multiple different accounts, it would look suspicious. If they are indeed fingerprinting me, is there a way to create unique IPs or something so this doesn't look weird?

Obfuscating anything to the bank will make you look like a crook, I wouldn't.
