Secure online banking with N26
Your N26 account is 3D Secure
3D Secure (3DS) protects you when making purchases online. With Mastercard Identity Check, your online card payments are extra secure so you have one less thing to worry about.
Push-notifications in real-time
With real-time push-notifications after every transaction—whether you're paying in store or online, receiving your salary, or withdrawing money from the ATM—you'll always have an overview of your financial movement.
Full control of your card
You can easily adjust the security settings of your N26 account directly in the app. Lock your card if you lose it (and unlock if you find it), change your PIN and allow foreign payments when you're abroad.
Faster login with fingerprint authentication
Open your N26 app with fingerprint identification or face recognition, and protect it from unauthorized access. With biometric authentication, you can easily authorize payments for your online purchases without having to enter your PIN every time.
Save with Spaces and reach your goals
Spaces is a N26 feature that lets you create your own sub-accounts to better organize your finances and save money. Create a space with just a few clicks, set a savings target and follow your progress.
And soon, you’ll be able to pool money together with other N26 users with Shared Spaces. We’ll let you know when this feature is available.Shared Spaces
