Frequently Asked Questions

How do you verify my identity?

After you have validated your email address, you'll either verify your identity via a video call in the N26 app or use your camera to photograph yourself and your ID. You can see what type of ID you’ll need (depending on your nationality) here.

How do I open an N26 bank account?

You can open a N26 account if you’re at least 18 years old, living in one of these countries, and own a compatible smartphone. To start the sign-up, simply create an account in the N26 app or on the N26 website and confirm your email address. You can then verify yourself with your ID directly in the app and pair your smartphone to your account.
