A one-stop forum for all your banking questions

Sign in with your fingerprint, app code or Face

We’re moving away from passwords to give you a consistent sign-in experience across our digital banking channels.  


We've made your online banking sign-in process more convenient, by allowing you to approve sign-in with your new app code, fingerprint or Face ID (iPhoneX).                        


 Here's how:


  1. Update your Standard Bank Banking App to the latest version.        
  2. Choose your new sign-in method on your banking app: new app code, fingerprint or FaceID (iPhoneX).        
  3. Sign into your banking app using your selected method to transact.             
  4. Once completed, sign into online banking on your computer, by entering your email address, then scanning the QR code that appears on the page, using the QR code scanner on the banking app’s sign-in screen on your phone, to approve the sign-in.

Hi MandyP, the QR code is not generated when entering my email on online banking, please advise. Firefox, Safari and Chrome not working.

The 5-digit app code is not secure and easily hackable, why is SB enforcing this as an alternative.  Not everyone has an iPhone X or expensive mobile device with figerprint and face recognition!

I agree. How do I change the five digit code to sign in?
