About this app

The Barclays app

If you’re 16 or over and you have a UK-registered mobile number and a Barclays current account or Barclaycard, you can register for the app. You’ll need the 16 digit number off your card, then follow the onscreen instructions. Some customers may be required to verify their identity with PINsentry or at a Barclays cash machine.

If you’ve got an activation code, follow the onscreen steps to register (you won’t need PINsentry for this).

After you’re set up, you’ll only need your 5-digit passcode to log in. Then you can set up Android Fingerprint to log in faster in future.

This app doesn’t work on rooted devices.

I have used this app for years and have had no issues will it, until now. The push notification ain't working properly. Especially the one to notify money in or out. I turned it on and leave the page it switches it self off. Go back in and it automatically switches back on and again leave the page it's automatically switches itself off. I reported it and all they said was make sure the phone and app have all updated , which they are. It's a shame,as you're Letting yourself down.

Working in the app is easy - transferring, paying etc. My big complaint (and it is really big) is the poor reliability of nfc payments. I set barclays as the default payment method but it is unreliable. When you go back to settings it has frequently de-selected and payments fail. Reselecting Barclays as the default payment method still doesn't always result in a payment being accepted. I can't trust it and always have to take a card with me. (Samsung A41)

The app used to be great, but for the past 6 months (may be longer) it regularly freezes, stops opening - won't make contactless payments etc. I'm often having to pause or even uninstall the app. It's incredibly frustrating, especially as Barclays doesn't support the use of Google wallet, so I'm forced to use the app as my default contactless payment system but it's not fit for purpose.
