How do I unlock my Barclaycard PIN?

If you enter the wrong number three times running when making a purchase, even if it's at three separate stores shops, your PIN will be locked and you won't be able to use it in store until it's unlocked. To unlock your PIN you'll need to visit a UK Barclays cash machine and enter your PIN correctly. This will automatically unlock your PIN.

To unlock your PIN you can:-
• Visit a Barclay’s cash machine or the cash machine of many other banks in the UK and enter your PIN correctly, again you’ll have 3 attempts. This will automatically unlock your PIN.
• If you forget your PIN you can view it online by logging into Barclaycard online servicing and selecting 'View your PIN securely' which you'll find under 'Account services' in the top menu.
• You'll need to contact our Customer Services Team to unlock your card or if your card has been retained by a cash machine.
To register for or log into  Barclaycard online servicing .
If you’re finding your PIN difficult to remember or you think someone else knows it, you can easily change it to one that's more memorable at Barclays cash machine or the cash machine of many other banks in the UK.  Enter your current PIN, select 'PIN services' from the screen menu and then the 'Select a new PIN' option. Choose a PIN that won't be guessed by someone else such as simple number patterns e.g. 1111, 1234 etc.
