Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Communication menu

What does the ‘Communication’ menu do?

This shows you messages, contact details and a summary of your appointments.

What is a ‘Message’?

Messages are personal communication between you and your KBC Brussels contacts like our branch advisers, insurance agents or relationship managers.

You can receive, answer and send such messages. The only attachments you can send are photos. However, our staff can send both documents and photos in attachment.

You can also receive automatically generated notifications relating to your products and services.

How long are messages kept?

You can delete your messages manually, but they will also be deleted automatically after two years.

How do you know you have an important message in KBC Brussels Mobile?

Whenever you get an important message in KBC Brussels Mobile, we’ll notify you by e-mail. You’ll also receive an alert when a new message appears in your inbox.

Contacts

Which contacts can I see?

Your relationship manager, branch, KBC Brussels Live and insurance agent contact details (where applicable).

What is KBC Brussels Live?

This is our team of experts who are on hand to answer any urgent questions you may have. If you have a relationship manager, they’re your first point of contact. If you don't have one or you can't reach them, our KBC Brussels Live experts will help you as much as possible when it suits you best.

Making an appointment

How do I make an appointment?

What if I don't know the type of appointment I need?

In that case, we advise you to call your relationship manager, branch, insurance agency or KBC Brussels Live to make the appointment.

How do I change or cancel an appointment?

Tap 'Communication > Contact > Appointments' to view, change or cancel your appointments. You can also contact your adviser to change or cancel an appointment. You'll find their name and phone number in the appointment confirmation sent to you under 'Communication > Contact > Your appointments'.

 If you want to contact your insurance agent, you can find their number at kbc.be/find-us.

Why am I unable to make certain types of appointments at my KBC Brussels branch?

For specialist advice or less common money matters, you can phone or set up a video chat with a range of our experts.

We offer a number of products and services available at your branch and insurance agency. Based on your specific situation, we'll arrange an appointment for you with the most suitable expert or insurance agent.

When do I receive a text message reminding me of the appointment?

If you've specified or entered a mobile number, you will receive a reminder by text message in the morning of the day before the appointment.

Can I also enter a foreign mobile number?

Yes, but only mobile numbers with the following country codes: 31 (Netherlands); 32 (Belgium); 33 (France); 49 (Germany); 352 (Luxembourg). We also offer this service free of charge for mobile numbers from those countries.

What's this mobile number used for?

We'll only use the mobile number you enter to send you a text reminder for appointments or to contact you about them. We won't use it for marketing or advertising purposes. For more detailed information on data processing, see our data protection statement.

I have an appointment for a video chat. Where do I go to start this?

Log in to KBC Brussels Touch and go to the contact page at the top right of your screen to see your appointments and start video chat.

We'll also give you a quick call before your appointment is scheduled to begin.

What if I can't see how to book a video chat appointment?

Contact your relationship manager or KBC Brussels Live.

What happens to my documents in Doccle if I go back to receiving correspondence from KBC Brussels by post?

If you want to receive all your communications by post, your Doccle mailbox will no longer be linked to KBC Brussels Mobile. You’ll no longer be able to retrieve documents in KBC Brussels Mobile, but they’ll remain in Doccle.

How do you know when a KBC Brussels document has been sent to Doccle?

You’ll receive an e-mail from Doccle whenever a new document has been sent to your Doccle inbox.

To guarantee your privacy and security, Doccle relies on Atos Worldline. What’s more, Doccle will never use or forward your data. Doccle’s partners don’t have access to the documents or data of other partners.

Can I still view my documents in Doccle without KBC Brussels Mobile and how do I request a password for Doccle?

Yes. You can also view your documents through Doccle’s website or app. If you’ve forgotten your password, go to www.doccle.be, log in and select ‘Forgot your password?’.

Can I access my partner’s documents in Doccle?

If your partner also has a Doccle mailbox, you can easily share documents using ‘Share’.

Chatting

Where can I find the chat feature in KBC Brussels Mobile?

Look for the speech bubble at the top of your screen and tap it. You’ll then be able to call us or chat with us.

Note that this feature isn’t available yet for all customers.

Who can I chat with?

You’ll chat with a KBC Brussels Live adviser from your region. We’ll look at where your branch is located to make sure you’re put in touch with the right regional specialist.

When can I chat with someone?

Contact KBC Brussels Live weekdays from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Can I continue to use KBC Brussels Mobile while I chat or when I’m in a queue?

As long as you remain active in KBC Brussels Mobile, so that the app doesn’t move to the background, you can minimise your chat session by tapping the ‘v’ arrow sign. You’ll get an alert as soon as the adviser starts chatting with you. You can return to your chat session by tapping the speech bubble at the top of the screen again.

Can I view my chat sessions again later?

You can go through your chat again as long as you haven’t closed it or logged out from KBC Brussels Mobile.

Getting notifications

What is a notification?

A notification is a personal alert that is displayed on your phone, also known as a push notification.

How can I enable or disable receiving notifications?

You can manage your notifications in KBC Brussels Mobile under ‘Profile’. You can also manage this in the settings of your iOS or Android device.

How can I see if I’ve received a notification?

If you’re not logged in to the app, a pop-up will appear on your phone’s home screen. If you are logged in, you’re also shown notifications there at the top of your screen.

On iOS and Windows phones, a badge (a circle containing a number) also appears in KBC Brussels Mobile to show that there is a new notification.

What notifications can I receive?

You’ll be notified when:

  • You need to pay bills from KBC Insurance or in Zoomit
  • You receive a message from your branch
  • A transaction cannot be carried out (like a loan repayment)
  • Money is put into your account (if you’ve enabled this)
  • You have direct debit or credit card payments due to come off your account
  • We suspect that you may have been the victim of fraud committed with your credit card or prepaid card and we inform you of this
  • You have an appointment, or when you enter some or our branches and participating retail outlets
  • You can pay somewhere using your phone (learn more under ‘Beacons’ below)

What information is provided in notifications?

The information displayed is limited and gives more of an idea of what the notification contains.

Why am I no longer getting notifications of payments into my account with another bank?

When you add an account with another bank, you allow us to access its details for a limited time. Once that has passed, you need to renew your consent so we can access your account details again. If you don’t, you won’t get notified of incoming payments any more.

Using the ‘Actions’ feature

How do I see ‘Actions’ alerts for things I need to do?

Tap the bell-shaped icon at the top right to do this.

What is this feature?

This is where we alert you to things you need to do, like pay bills, clear your account or sign documents.

How do I carry out an action?

Simply tap an action to do what it asks. You’ll be guided through the various steps to do this.

Can I do all the actions using KBC Brussels Mobile?

No. Each action tells you where you can do it (KBC Brussels Mobile, KBC Brussels Touch or KBC Brussels Invest).
