Why can’t I register on my rooted/Jailbroken phone?

Keeping your money safe and secure is our main priority, but we can’t guarantee our measures will work on a device with modified system files. To make sure we’re doing everything we can to fight fraud, Barclays Pingit isn’t available on phones with rooted access. Resetting your phone to its factory settings may enable you to use the app.

How safe is it to use Barclays Pingit?

When you use any Barclays Mobile Banking services, you’re automatically protected by the Mobile Banking Guarantee if you fall victim to fraud. This means we’ll refund any money that is taken from your account if you’re an innocent victim of fraud.

Will I get charged for using Barclays Pingit or any Barclays Pingit services?

Barclays Pingit is free to download and use – we won’t charge you to send or receive money. You might have to pay charges if, for example, you make a payment that takes you into your overdraft – but these are standard charges you get with any payment method.

Why do I get an error message when I try to register?

If you see the error message labelled RPOO2, it means you’ve tried to register for Barclays Pingit before. If so, please check that you are entering your account number and sort code correctly. If you see these error messages but don’t think you've registered before, call us on 0333 200 1012.

Why can’t I get Barclays Pingit on my phone?

Barclays Pingit is currently available on Android 2.2 and above, iOS 4.2 and above and BlackBerry OS 5.0 and above.

The BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone operating systems aren’t supported yet but we’re working to change that. You can’t use the app on Symbian phones.
