How we’re improving your online security

We’re always working to improve your security. From 14 September you’ll notice that we’ll sometimes ask you for extra security information when you’re banking or buying online.

This is called Strong Customer Authentication External link icon and is being rolled out across all UK banks to boost your protection.

For more information on your rights when making payments in Europe, please see the leaflet issued by the European Commission External link icon 2019.

What we’ll ask you for

We’ll need one thing from two of these categories

Something you know, like your passcode

Something you have, such as your mobile phone

  • finger print

Something unique to you, your fingerprint or face ID

What's changing

Activating debit and credit cards

You’ll have to activate any new debit or credit card we send you before you can use it (don’t worry - we’ll include instructions with the card).

Did you know you can activate your card easily using our New Mobile Bank app? Check out our quick tutorial video to see how:


Accessing your account online

You’ll no longer need to scroll through the list of codes on your plastic security card when you’re logging on to eBanking or approving payments. That’s because we’ve introduced a brand new app called Danske ID to replace your Access ID security card.

For more information on Danske ID or for information on what to do if you don’t have a smart phone visit

Transferring money

When you’re approving transfers through eBanking or Mobile Bank you may be asked for your security info more often.

Shopping online

When you’re buying things online you may be asked to authorise your purchase with a six digit code, which we’ll text you. So please make sure we have your mobile number, otherwise you might miss out.
