How do I authenticate using my PINsentry card reader to log in to my online servicing account?

Here’s how you can authenticate for online servicing using a PINsentry card reader:

  • When prompted by the online servicing page you’re visiting, enter the last 4 digits of your card number on the screen and pop your Barclaycard or your authentication card into your PINsentry card reader with the chip facing down and press Identify.
  • The card reader will then ask you to enter your card’s PIN. This is the PIN you’d usually enter into a card terminal when making in-store purchases. Once you’ve entered this, press Enter.
  • You’ll then be shown a unique eight-digit code on your PINsentry card reader’s screen. Put this code into the box provided in the online servicing page.
  • That’s it – your authentication should be complete.
