We've produced a short online video to show you how to set up your digiass 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”
- Press button “1” on the digipass
- Enter the four-digit digipass PIN we sent you and press “OK”
- You will now be prompted to enter your own new digipass PIN, which for your security must meet the following criteria:
- It must be four digits long
- It must be different to the PIN we sent to you
- It must not be a sequence of numbers, such as “1234”
- It must not be a sequence of identical numbers, such as “2222”
- It must not be easily obtained or guessed, such as using you date of birth
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.
- Turn on the Digipass by pressing OK and then press 1
- Enter Your Digipass PIN and press OK. You will see a One Time Passcode or OTP, on the Display
- Enter your OTP
- Enter you the characters shown for you unique security word
You should now have accessed your internet banking and the home screen as shown below will be displayed.
If you need a new digipass because the battery is low (when it displays 5%) please let us know and we will send out a replacement. You should receive this within 5 business days.
We will replace your digipass free of charge when the battery level is 5% or less. In our experience when it proactively displays “Low Battery” it will still have quite a long battery life left. You can find out the amount of battery left on your digipass by following these instructions:
If you have the older style navy blue digipass:
- Turn it on by pressing the red power button
- Press the letter “T” button five times until the display shows “TEST BATT?”
- Press the “=” sign
The display will tell you what percent of battery you have left.
If you have the green digipass:
- Turn it on by pressing the OK button on the lower right of the digipass
- Press the “>” button four times until you see “5. Info” on the screen
- Press OK
- Press the “>” button three times until it states “4. Battery level” on the screen
- Press OK
The display will tell you what percent of battery you have left.
We do not charge for digipass or issuing replacements for personal customers. Please ensure that you keep the digipass in a safe place to avoid unnecessary re-issue. Please return any old/unrequired digi passes to us at or freepost address - Freepost TRIODOS BANK - and we will recycle securely on your behalf.
If you no longer require your digipass please return to us using the freepost address - Freepost TRIODOS BANK - and we will recycle it securely for you.
Our primary feature regarding the digipass device is that of security. Our current providers VASCO have confirmed that the digipass can be recycled and if you wish to return your digipass to us if you no longer require it we will recycle it securely on your behalf.

We recommend you check that you have the necessary secure (SSL) connection with Triodos Bank.
How to check your secure connection with Microsoft Internet Explorer:
1. In the address line, HTTPS should appear instead of HTTP. The "S" stands for secure
2. Select "Properties" from the "File" menu
3. Next to "Connection" it says SSL x.y, where x.y = version number
4. Select "Certificates" for information about the certificate assigned to Triodos Bank (or double-click on the padlock in the browser status bar).
To prevent unauthorised access and viruses being downloaded onto your computer, you should use a firewall and anti-virus software.
A personal firewall is software that protects your computer against abuse from hackers and warns you if someone tries to gain access to your computer.
This type of protection is very important for computers that have a permanent internet connection, e.g. with an (A)DSL (broadband) or cable connection.
Here are some tips for using your firewall and anti-virus software effectively:
- Make sure you always install the most recent updates
- Make sure the anti-virus software is always activated, even when you are not connected to the internet
- Make sure you set up the anti-virus software to scan your entire computer regularly
- If an active anti-virus programme or firewall causes problems with Triodos internet banking, please check the settings of the anti-virus software and the firewall Internet banking security
- Only install software of known origin and integrity
Do not save encrypted pages on your hard drive. It is standard practice not to save encrypted pages in your browser. This ensures that other users of the same computer cannot access these pages when you are finished with them. You can check and if necessary change the security setting for your browser. With Microsoft Explorer proceed as follows:
- select "Internet Options" in the "Tools" menu
- go to the "Advanced" tab
- under "Security", activate the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option.
If you authorise a payment from your account, you will be responsible for it. Where you tell us a payment from your account was not authorised by you, you can ask us for a refund. However, you must notify us as soon as possible and no later than 13 months after the debit date. After this time we will not be able to issue a refund.
