When you’re ready to register you’ll need your Barclaycard to hand and a UK mobile number. You need to be 16 or over to use the app. T&Cs apply.

Register for the app

Make sure you have these to hand:

  • Your Barclaycard
  • Your Barclaycard PIN
  • Your mobile phone number – we’ll link your app to this number
  • You might also need a PINsentry card reader, depending on the registration option you choose

  • There are a few ways to register for the Barclaycard app, depending on your device:

When you confirm your mobile number and register, we might ask you to use a PINsentry card reader

If you have a PINsentry card reader:

  1. Select ‘Yes – I have a PINsentry device’
  2. Enter the last four digits of your card number
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to generate an 8-digit code using your PINsentry
  4. Enter the 8-digit PINsentry code on your phone, then select ‘Continue’
  5. Confirm you’re happy to receive digital statements
  6. Continue the registration and start using the app

If you don’t have a PINsentry card reader:

  1. Select ‘No – I don’t have a PINsentry device'
  2. You can complete your registration by submitting an image of your photo ID and a short video of yourself. Follow the instructions on the screen to do so
  3. Once you’ve submitted your photo ID and video, it usually takes 5 minutes to verify them. You can close the app, and log back in using the passcode you set earlier to check if you’ve been verified successfully 
  4. If we’ve been able to verify you, you’ll then need to enter your 4-digit card PIN to complete your registration. This is the only time we’ll ask for your PIN – please continue to keep it safe
  5. If we haven’t been able to verify you, you’ll need to complete your registration by ordering a PINsentry device
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to order one. You won’t be able to register for the app until you’ve received your card reader
  7. Once your PINsentry device arrives, follow the steps above to complete your registration and start using the app

Log in to the app

There are two ways to log in to the app, depending on your device:

  1. Use a passcode

    You can log in using the 5-digit passcode that you created during the app registration process. You can also update this passcode once you’re logged in under the ‘Settings’ menu

  2. Use Face ID or Touch ID

    If your device supports Face ID or Touch ID, you can use this to log in. You can enable these when you register for the app, or after you’ve logged in – just go to ‘Settings’

Forgotten your login details?

We can’t resend your passcode, so you’ll need to register for the app again – we do this to keep your account safe. When you register again, you can set up a new passcode. You’ll need to use the same details that you used before.

  1. Open the app
  2. Tap the ‘?’ symbol
  3. Tap ‘Forgot passcode?’
  4. Tap ‘Reset’ and follow the instructions to register again
