What if I get my PIN wrong?

If you’ve forgotten your PIN, you can get an instant PIN reminder.

If you get your PIN wrong twice nothing will happen, but if you enter it wrong three times in a row it will be locked.

If you locked your PIN while making a purchase

You’ll need to visit a Barclays cash machine to unlock it, and you’ll need the correct pin. Just select 'PIN services' and follow the instructions.
