Can I opt out of using Strong Customer Authentication?

No, you can't opt out. Strong Customer Authentication is a part of new Europe-wide legislation (called the Payment Services Directive 2, or PSD2 for short) that determines how people make payments or service their accounts online. It also helps to keep your account safe from fraud. The new regulations will apply to all banks not just Barclays and Barclaycard.
