Barclays FAQ

If you are having problems with your software, we hope you will find a solution below. Click a question to expand and view the answer:

  • Question 1

    I've received my activation code but when I apply it, Kaspersky is stating that the license has already expired. What do I do now?

    This might be because you have received a copy of your previous activation code. This can sometimes happen due to one of the following reasons:

    • You applied for a new activation code from Barclays when your current license has 14 or more days remaining on its validity period.

    or

    • When applying for a renewal through your online banking, you selected the option 'apply' or 'register' instead of 'renew'.

    If you have less than 14 days left on your existing license please access your Online banking account and click the 'Kaspersky Offer' link, located at the right hand side of the page at the very bottom of the 'Interested in: Menu'. Select the 'Renew' option on the following page and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the renewal process. You should then receive a new activation code from Barclays. If for some reason you still receive an expired code after following the procedure, please contact Barclays directly on 0845 600 2323 (Call rates).

  • Question 2

    When I am trying to register my details it is giving me the error 'something's not right'. What shall I do?

It is recommended that you use the same details that are displayed at the top of your online banking 'At A Glance' / 'My portfolio' screen.
