Barclays Video Banking

We like to put a face to a name

Use Video Banking to manage your money from just about anywhere. It’s simple, secure, and it’s all face to face.

What is Video Banking?

Video Banking lets you chat to us face to face from your phone or tablet. It’s easy to use, completely secure and available Monday to Friday from 7am to 8pm, and from 9am to 5pm at weekends and on bank holidays.

It’s available in your Barclays app1 on an Apple or Android device. You’ll need good Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G coverage though2.

We’ll check your identity on the call before discussing your accounts and personal information – just as we would in person or over the phone. If you use PINsentry, it’ll help if you have your card reader to hand.

What can I use it for?

You can use Video Banking to talk to us securely about any of these topics

  • Apply for a mortgage Agreement in Principle
  • Apply for a loan
  • Open a children’s savings account
  • Open a BarclayPlus or Young Person’s Account* 
  • Apply for a Barclaycard
  • Apply for an overdraft 

     * To do this using Video Banking, you, as the parent or guardian, will need to have a current account with us for at least three months, with regular payments going in and out.


If you’d like to talk about something else, we’ll help you to get in touch in a different way.

Sometimes, we might need some more information from you – if that’s the case, we’ll let you know on the call.
