Add your signposting title here… Voice ID

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.

Voice ID is available to telephone banking customers aged 18 and over.

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.

How it works

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 with Voice ID

To get started, give us a call. 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.


Frequently asked questions

Is Voice ID secure?

Yes. The unique characteristics of your voice make it much more secure than a conventional password.

Will Voice ID work if I have a cold?

Yes. Having a cold or sore throat doesn’t change the way speech is generated so we will still be able to verify you. If your voice has changed because of medical reasons we will still be able to help – we will just need to verify you in another way. 

Can my voiceprint be stolen?

No. Your voiceprint is not a recording, or something that can be stolen. We store a digital representation of your voice that only works with our system. It can’t be used to gain access to any other system, and no one can use it to make a copy of your voice.

Is my voiceprint really unique?

Yes. Just like your fingerprint, your voiceprint is uniquely yours. It’s made up of over a hundred different characteristics representing your voice – in fact it’s even more unique than your fingerprint.

How is my voiceprint stored and is my data secure?

Your voiceprint will be stored securely alongside your existing account information. Remember, we treat all your data with care and respect. Everything you need to know about your data can be found in our Privacy policy

What happens if I enrol to Voice ID but change my mind?

You can unenroll at any time by speaking to our telephone banking team – but remember, Voice ID makes banking with us easier and more secure.

Who can apply for Voice ID?

Any customer enrolled for Telephone Banking over the age of 18 can apply for Voice ID.

Can I use Voice ID on behalf of someone I care for?

If you have third party access or power of attorney on an account of someone you care for, you can use Voice ID to be verified. This will give you access to your accounts and any others you're authorised to manage.
