We work hard to keep your accounts safe and secure. We constantly monitor our systems and processes to ensure we maintain the high level of security you would expect from a bank.
There are different ways for you to log in to your mobile banking app and you should take the following steps to protect your app for each.
If you have an eligible device, you can log in to the app using fingerprint login. Your passcode or password and security number will be required to enable Touch ID and equivalent Android fingerprint, and, to add or remove any fingerprints. Once enabled, any fingerprints on your device can be used to access your account so you must not store anyone else’s fingerprint on your device. For more information about Touch ID security.
Additionally, if you have an iPhone X you can use Apple’s Face ID functionality to log in and authenticate transactions with our app. Similar to Touch ID, you will need your passcode or password and security number to enable Face ID. For more detail on Face ID you can visit the apple support page by following this link: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208108
If you choose to use a Passcode to log in to the app, it’s important to select one that would be hard for a fraudster to guess, is different from your other Passcodes and PINs, and that you keep it secret.
