What is Mobile PINsentry and how is it different from the PINsentry card reader?

Like our PINsentry devices, Mobile PINsentry gives you added protection for your accounts. It’s a feature in our app that generates unique codes that you can use to confirm it’s you making a purchase.

If you don’t already have it, you can find out how to download and register for the Barclaycard app. Or, if you have the Barclays app, you can use MobilePINsentry there.

You need to be aged 16 or over and have a Barclays current account, mortgage account or a Barclaycard to use our app.
