Phone number checker

Make sure you make the right call

Check whether a Barclays number you’ve been asked to call is genuine – and find out how to handle incoming calls that make you suspicious.

What you need to know before you check a number.

  • For incoming calls, make a note of the number, end the call and check it here. If it’s genuine, dial the number from your phone (don’t return the call automatically) 
  • Remember that we’ll never ask you for your card PIN, or any PINsentry code by phone
  • Contact us directly instead of using this checker if you have a Corporate, Wealth or Investment Bank account

Check a number

Please ensure the number is entered correctly (eg 0345 734 5345).
