- What do I need to open an account?
First, you need to download the N26 mobile banking app, available for both iOS and Android devices.

Once you successfully verify, pair your smartphone to your new account, and we’ll activate your IBAN so you can transfer money right away.
- How is it so easy to make an account?

Your account is also secure with every transfer. You can only access your account on your paired smartphone through a password or fingerprint, and all transfers must be confirmed with your PIN.
