Is sharing financial information through Open Banking safe and secure?

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) must approve all providers offering Open Banking services. You can check whether a UK provider is approved on the FCA website.

To keep your information secure, we use industry-approved Open Banking technology, known as APIs (application programming interfaces), to safely share and receive your current account information. We’ll never ask you to share your log-ins for other accounts.

Before you decide to link accounts you have with other providers to your Barclays app, we’ll tell you what information we’ll ask you for. We’ll also check you would like to continue sharing this information every so often. You can see a reminder of what you’re sharing at any time.
