If you’re a Current Account customer you can use your digipass (the green pin pad), digipass PIN (which you set yourself), and details regarding the security word you set up when applying for the account.
We've produced a short online video to show you how to set up your digipass and activate your online banking. Watch the video on YouTube now.
If you are not eligible for a Triodos Current Account due to anything related to your credit file, you might want to contact the Money Advice Service who provide free impartial money advice. They can also provide details of bank accounts that may be suitable for you.
We've produced a short online video to show you how to set up your digipass and activate your online banking. Watch the video on Youtube now, or follow the steps below:
You will need your digipass, digipass PIN and need to know your security word as you will be asked to input these characters
When you first use your digipass you will be prompted to change your Digipass PIN to something memorable. You can do this by following these simple steps:
Switch the digipass on by pressing “OK”
Please note, if your choice of digipass PIN isn’t considered secure enough the message “Weak PIN” will be displayed on the digipass. If this happens press “OK” and you will be prompted to enter a different, more secure, PIN.
When your PIN has been changed, an eight-digit code will be displayed
To login, continue to the Triodos homepage.
Turn the digipass over and input the digipass number from the back into the ‘digipass number’ - do not include hyphens - and then press NEXT.
There is an option to tick the ‘remember my number on this computer’ checkbox so you don’t have to input this every time.
Click on green NEXT box on the bottom right of the screen.
Follow the steps on the login page to complete login.
You should now have accessed your internet banking and the home screen as shown below will be displayed.
At Triodos we embrace the opportunities that an increasingly digital world presents. We have acknowledged that contactless mobile payment methods would be useful for a proportion of our current account customers. However we are still looking at developing this functionality and unfortunately our size and sustainable focus mean it may take us longer than some other banks to add such features. Developments in payment methods and technologies is an area that we continue to review. For now we ask that our customers carry their debit card with them to make payments.
You can apply for an overdraft of a maximum limit of £2,000. Applications are assessed for credit score and affordability in line with responsible lending and have set criteria. Our personal overdrafts are not intended to be used for business purposes.
Our different approach to banking means your money works harder - changing lives, protecting the environment and building strong communities.
