Voice ID

Voice ID is available to Telephone Banking customers aged 18 and over.

Voice ID is a new security feature for Telephone Banking customers. It authenticates you using your voice, so you don’t have to use your password. As soon as you start talking to one of our team, Voice ID will confirm who you are. Getting started is simple – you just need to be registered for Telephone Banking.

More secure

Using your voice to access Telephone Banking is the most secure way to protect your account.


Once enrolled, we'll recognise your voice when you speak to us - no time spent verifying your identity.


It authenticates you using your voice, so you don’t have to remember a password.

Your voiceprint

Just like your fingerprints, your voice is unique. Voice ID analyses over 100 aspects of the way you talk, from your accent and pronunciation to physical differences like the size and shape of your mouth. All these things create your unique voiceprint.

Staying secure

While a password can be written down or guessed by fraudsters, nobody can copy your voiceprint. With Voice ID you can be more confident than ever that your banking details are secure.

Get started

To get started, give us a call on 0818 210 260. You'll need your Telephone Banking security details. If you aren't already registered, please follow the steps to register first. 

Once you confirm your identity using your customer number, PIN and password, please also have your mobile phone handy, so we can send you a one time passcode. One of our team can then set up Voice ID for you.
