Strong Customer Authentication Changes – Securing your digital payments
When you’re sending a payment via internet banking or the mobile app, you may be asked to confirm your identity. How you do this depends on whether you’re using:
- Internet banking. You’ll confirm it’s you making the payment using your mobile app, security token or one-time passcode.
- Mobile app. You’ll use your internet banking password to verify your identity.
Will this happen every time I make a payment?
Once you save the details to your payee list and confirm your identity to show it's you sending the money, the payee will become 'trusted'. Payees setup prior to the change will only become 'trusted' when you confirm your identity. That means you may not need to confirm your identity again, unless you change details like sort code, account number, name or reference.
Forgotten your password?
Go to log-in to your online account and select ‘I don’t know my password’, then select alternative details. Once in, select ‘Manage login and security details’ from the More menu. Or, you can reset your password here Link opens in a new window.
