Phone number checker

Unsure if a phone number is genuine?

You can use this tool to check numbers from many Barclays departments that make outbound calls or send communications.

How to use our phone number checker

Please make sure you enter the number correctly and in full – you may need to remove the country code. For example, search for ‘0345 075 7060’ – that’s a number we might call you from..

Beware of fraudsters

Fraudsters can use fake numbers that look like Barclays numbers to hide their true identity.
If you’re unsure about a call or text you receive, please use our number checker to make sure it’s genuine – then enter the number manually on your phone.
You can read more about fraudsters' tactics here.

Remember, we’ll never call or text you and ask for your PIN, password, PINsentry codes or Mobile PINsentry codes.

Just so you know

if you have a Corporate, Wealth or Investment Bank account with us, rather than using the number checker, get in touch with us separately1.

Check a number

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