Frequently asked questions

Signing up for KBC Brussels Mobile if you already bank with us

Install the official app from your app store. All you have to do then is complete our secure registration and activation process directly from the app.

No. The way you answer the questions when registering to use KBC Brussels Mobile determines the version of the app you end up in. You can even use KBC Brussels Mobile if you aren’t a customer.

You don't need to reinstall the app or register again. Just register as a customer in the app. Tap the profile icon at the top left or 'Banking & Insurance' at the bottom right.

This is the code you use to log in and sign transactions once you’ve registered your device.

Yes, once you’ve installed the KBC Brussels Mobile app, completed the registration and activation processes (you only have to do this once), and set your PIN.

Touch ID is the official name for the fingerprint identity sensor on the latest iPhones and iPads. On Android phones it’s called Fingerprint. It’s neatly built into the home button on your phone and lets you log in and sign transactions without having to use your PIN.

Face ID is the name for the facial recognition feature on the iPhone X. You can use it to unlock your iPhone X without having to enter your passcode.

You can only do this in your device's settings.

Yes, although you’ll need to complete the registration and activation processes and set your PIN for each device. It’s up to you whether to use a different PIN for each device or to go for the same one for all.

No, we treat a phone as a personal device and therefore do not allow it to be used by more than one user.

Don't forget that if someone logs in as an active user on a smartphone using the registration and activation procedures, they become the only active user on that device. This means that the previous user will no longer be able to log in (unless they complete the procedures again).

This can only be done using your PIN.

Note that anyone who adds their fingerprint to your device can log in to your KBC Brussels Mobile app and sign transactions using Touch ID/Face ID/Fingerprint

This is so that your new device is recognised for use with KBC Brussels Mobile and security is guaranteed.

The PIN for KBC Brussels Mobile% must consist of five digits. Letters are not permitted.

Your card number is a unique, personal number that you will find on your KBC Brussels Debit Card. You need it when going through the registration and activation procedures on your device.

If your PIN has been blocked, you can request a new one using ‘Forgotten PIN’ in the main menu. This involves going through the registration procedure again using your debit card and card reader.

  2. Tap your profile icon at the top left
  3. Scroll to ‘Security and privacy’ and tap ‘PIN’

If you get a message notifying you that your card has been blocked for online use it means you’ve entered the wrong PIN three times in a row when logging in. KBC Brussels Mobile lets you lift a block on online banking or contact your KBC Brussels branch. You can still use your card to pay in shops or make cash withdrawals from ATMs.
