The Barclays app features

What can your app do?

If you’re using the basic version of the Barclays app1, you won’t be able to use all of its features. Please upgrade to the most recent version using your PINsentry. If you’re a Business or Wealth customer (including those in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man), you won’t have access to all the app’s features. Find out more about the Barclays app for Business and Wealth.

Take control of your money

Spending controls

Take control of your spending – choose a daily limit for cash machine withdrawals, and control whether your card can be used to make payments online, on your apps or over the phone.

Stay in control

Choose how we contact you and how we share your data with third parties – just tap ‘Settings’ and go to your Privacy Hub.

See when regular payments are due

Use the Calendar in your Barclays app to keep track of regular payment dates.

Learn more about your money

Discover smarter ways to manage your money with our handy in-app Insights – they’re nudges, tips and tools we think you’ll find useful. Because they’re personalised, you’ll only get them when they’re relevant to you. 


How to send money abroad

It’s simple to use your Barclays app to send money abroad – choose from over 35 countries.

Pay in a cheque without paying us a visit

Pay your cheques into your current account using your app and you’ll get your money sooner – usually the next working day. Just take a photo of your cheque and let us know the amount. 


Card security

Keeping your account safe just got even easier. You can report your card as lost or stolen, or if you’ve just misplaced it, put its use on pause with a ‘temporary freeze’. 

Plus, if you ever forget your PIN, you can view it securely in the app.

Travelling abroad

Protect your card both at home and away. You can restrict card payments made when abroad to protect you both home and away.

Forgotten your PIN?

You can check your PIN in your Barclays app with just a few taps.

What else can your app do?

Chat to us securely in your app

Select ‘Live chat’ to talk with us and fast-track through security.

Update your details on the go

Go paperless for your documents

You can view, download and print your documents securely and conveniently from the app.

Stay in control

Choose how we contact you and how we share your data with third parties – just tap ‘Settings’ and go to your Privacy Hub.


Keep track of your cash with notifications.

Stay on top of your money and set up notifications in your app – they’re a great way to keep on top of your finances.
