Fortunately, this can be sorted out quickly. If you’ve entered an incorrect identification code three times, you must register the app for use again. In that case, you’ll choose a new five-digit identification code. Then you can log in again without problem. Here’s how to do that:

  1. First have your debit card and your e.dentifier ready. You will need them in order to register 
  2. Go to the home screen on the app. You can also close the app briefly to get back to this screen
  3. Tap “Activate the app” and follow the steps on the screen. If you don’t see this, put in the wrong identification code a couple of times, and start at step 2
