Authorised users

Give people you trust access to your account

Invite someone to be an additional cardholder or account supervisor today in the Barclays app, in a branch or over the phone. For now, they’ll need to bank with us.

Authorised user roles

Designed to fit your needs on a temporary or on a long-term basis.

Additional cardholder

Someone to spend on your behalf 

You can give up to four people an extra debit card to spend from your account, for £3 per month.

You’ll be in control of how and where they can use it.

To use this service, you can send your trusted person an invitation from your app.

Account supervisor

Help with managing your finances

They can see your balance, past and recent transactions. You can also let them set controls on your debit card.

You control what level of access and permissions they have, so you can let someone help with your banking without handing over control of your account.

To use this free service, you can send your trusted person an invitation from your app.

Other options

There may be circumstances where you want to share more control of your finances or might need additional help with managing your money. Whether you need short-term or long-term support, or are simply planning for the future, there are other options available, which can include debit cards, like power of attorney or third-party access.

You’ll need to decide carefully what works best for you.
