We’ve a number of ways to get set up

Choose the way you want to register. You can now register using PINsentry, your debit card or at one of our cash machines.

What do I need to do?

You’ll need one of the below to complete your registration

  • PINsentry

    Step 1

    • Open the app
    • Create a 5-digit code and enter it, and then re-enter it
    • Enter your mobile number, account details and your name
    • Tap ‘Continue’

    Step 2

    • You’ll receive a text message from us that includes a 6-digit passcode – tap this into the app

    Step 3

    • Tap ‘Use PINsentry’ and enter the last 4 digits from the long number on your debit card
    • Slide your debit card into the PINsentry card reader and press the ‘Respond’ key. Type in your PIN and press ‘Enter’

    Don’t have a PINsentry card reader? Register using just your debit card and you’ll still have access to the app’s core features. You can upgrade to the full version any time – just wait until you receive your PINsentry device or visit a Barclays branch or cash machine.
