How do I choose a memorable word?

Your memorable word must be 6-8 characters long and contain only letters (a-z). It cannot contain your surname, consecutive letters, keyboard sequences or more than two of the same letters in a row, i.e. 'abcdef', 'qwerty' or 'goggles'.

To help you remember your memorable word we'll ask you to create a memorable word reminder as well, but this cannot be the same as your memorable word.

Every time you log into your Barclaycard account online, you'll be asked to enter your username, your passcode and certain characters from your memorable word.

Once you're logged in you can change your security details at any time by selecting ‘Secure login details’ which you'll find under 'Your details' in the top menu.
