How do I get started?
If you're already registered for Online Services, you can use the same login details for our app. Follow our simple guide on how to start using the app.
If you’re not already for Online Services, you can register in our app or through Online Services.
To start using the app, you’ll need to make sure you have an up-to-date phone number registered with us to complete the phone authentication process.
If you don't have a valid phone number registered with us, register one now.
For security reasons, you may not be able to use your new number straightaway. If you prefer not to register your phone number with us, you can ask for a ‘One-Time Password’ instead during the registration process, which should arrive within 7 days.Back to top

Yes. You can download and register our app on up to 10 Apple iOS and Android devices. Each device must be registered for you to log in. On other mobile devices, including BlackBerry and Windows, you can access Online Services through your phone's internet browser.Back to top

What is Touch ID/Android fingerprint?
Touch ID is Apple’s solution to allow people to unlock their device or use certain apps by authenticating with their fingerprint.
Android fingerprint is the equivalent on Android devices.
You’ll need a compatible device running a recent iOS or Android version. Our app is not compatible with some older versions of the operating systems - check your app store for more details.Back to top
Do I have to use Face ID/Touch ID/Android fingerprint?
No, Touch ID/Face ID or Android fingerprint can be turned on or off at any time by simply toggling the switch ‘on’ or ‘off’ in our app’s security settings.
If you select not to use your fingerprint or Face ID to log in to our app, you’ll be asked for three characters from your memorable information instead.Back to top
What does auto log-out mean?
This is a 'timeout' feature that stops you from accidentally leaving your online services account open on your mobile phone. You’ll be automatically logged out of the app after a period of inactivity. You can select how long this is in ‘Settings’.Back to top
What happens if I change my device?
You can reset our app through the app settings on your existing device to de-register it. Then just download our app on your new device and follow the steps to register it. You’ll need a device running iOS or Android - check the App Store or Google Play for more details.Back to top

Does the app support multiple users?
No. Only 1 registered Online Services user can access their online accounts through the app. However, other users of the tablet can still access Online Services through the web browser. Where a tablet is used by more than one person, login details should never be shared and users should always log out when they’re finished.Back to top
