Do I need PINsentry every time I use Online Banking?

You won’t need to use PINsentry in Online Banking when:

  • You pay someone whose details are already saved
  • Setting up a bill payment to selected companies (eg utility suppliers) whose details are already in our system

You can also access Online Banking without PINsentry by setting up a memorable word and passcode to log in with and:

  • See your balances
  • Transfer money between your Barclays accounts

You’ll need PINsentry when:

  • You make payments to new payees not on our pre-approved list
  • Sending money abroad
  • Setting up a standing order to a new payee
  • You want to update your contact details
  • Making payments and sharing data through third-party apps or websites
