WHAT YOU NEED TO BEGIN

Your 12-digit customer number

You can find this in the welcome letter or email you received when you opened your account. You can also find your customer number in the Metro Bank app under 'My details'. Still can't find your customer number?

Your Magic Word

You would have set this up or received it in the post when you opened your account. Magic Words last for 30 calendar days, so you may need to request a new one

Your UK registered mobile number

This needs to be the phone number associated with your account. You'll only need to enter the last four digits. Need to change your number?
