Liechtenstein is now formally part of the Schengen zone

Hence there are officially no border controls between Switzerland and Liechtenstein owing to the Schengen Agreement.

As of today, Liechtenstein is the latest country to become a Member of the Schengen area, the zone without controls at internal borders. Over 400 million Europeans from 26 European countries now enjoy passport-free travel across the Schengen area.

Re: Liechtenstein is now formally part of the Schengen zone

I remember reading somewhere that the problem with Lichtenstein was that it did not satisfy some requirements on bank secrecy, so the EU did not admit them in Schengen.
If this was true, what happened?
Did Lichtenstein comply with Brussels' requirements, or they just realized it was already a de-facto schengen member so they made it official?

Liechtenstein did not even have border police at Austria border, Swiss police was responsible for border controls
