If I link an account from another bank, what account information will Barclays receive and how will I know what information I’m sharing?

If you choose to use this feature, we’ll request, and be able to show you, the following information from your other bank or provider

  • Account balances
  • Information specific to the type of account – this could include your sort code and account number, card details, the account type and its name
  • Your recent transactions – this is usually the past two years, but might vary by provider

We handle any account information you choose to share with us from another bank or provider in the same way we store your existing Barclays information. We might use it to assess how much you could borrow, or to help us send you personalised communications.

We do this according to our privacy policy, and will store this data for up to six years. If the accounts you share with us have other account holders, please let them know how we’ll use their information. You can find our privacy policy by opening ‘Settings’ and then ‘Data and privacy controls’ in your app.

If you’d like to opt out of marketing, you can also do this under ‘Data and privacy controls’ in ‘Settings’ in your app.
