Later this year, new regulations on payment services will come into effect. The changes will help protect you from fraud, as sometimes you’ll be asked to prove it really is you when making some online purchases.
There are three ways to confirm it’s you – the quickest and easiest way is using the Barclays app1.
- The Barclays app – confirming it’s you takes just a few taps with our secure app. If you don’t already have the app, you can download it from your app store
- Text message – we’ll send a code to your mobile for you to enter on the payment screen to confirm your identity
- PINsentry card reader – if you have a Barclays PINsentry card reader, you can use it to generate a code that confirms it’s you. You’ll need to have the card reader, debit card and PIN ready when asked to verify it's really you making the payment
