What is an 'Activation Code'?

Once you register, you will then to obtain an Activation Code to activate your Barclays app:

  • The Activation Code only lasts for 24 hours
  • The Activation Code must be kept secure and not given to anyone else
  • You will have 3 attempts to enter the Activation code
  • It is best that you use the Activation Code as soon as possible, once received
  • Once you have entered your Activation Code and it is validated successfully, if you stop the registration process, for whatever reason, you will be able to re-start at the same position
  • If you request a replacement Activation Code, for example by calling our Service Centre, then the issuing of a new code against your account, immediately prevents the use of any other Activation Code, previously given out for that account, but not used.

Note: We will never call you and ask for your Activation Code.
