In fact, the only way for anyone to access your accounts online is in the same way you would - with your card reader codes or secure details (you decide what these are when you set up online banking). That's why fraudsters use phishing techniques to try to get you to part with them.
It's so important to keep anything you might use to access online banking safe - from the one-time code you use to set it up, to your secure details, debit cards and card reader codes. No matter how convincing the call or email - never give these details away. If in doubt, don't click on the email and hang up the call. You can always call us back using the number you know is safe.
With the Banking app you can also log in with Touch or Face ID if your device has that capability. That means you can access your accounts with your fingertip (or a selfie in the case of Face ID).
