Set up Face ID or Fingerprint login.

Face ID or Touch ID makes securely logging in to our app even easier. Once you’ve set up your PIN login, it’s easy as 1, 2, 3. Keep in mind, you'll need to set up Face ID or Touch ID on your device before you can enable it in the app. ​

  1. Login using your PIN​
  2. Tap ‘More’ > ‘Login settings’ ​
  3. Toggle ‘Enable Touch ID / Face ID’ and accept the Terms of Use.

Learn about SMS code

SMS code is just one of the ways we keep your accounts secure. Think of it as a second layer of protection. To set it up, just go to 'My details' > 'My security settings' in online banking and click 'Activate SMS code'.


Easily find out who’s really charged you

If you’re wondering where a transaction on your account came from, you can put your mind at ease by clicking on the transaction in the Bankwest App. This will give you the option to view more detailed info about the business that charged you. See how it works.


Disputing suspicious transactions

If you’ve noticed a transaction that wasn’t you, you can temporarily lock your card in the app or online banking to keep it safe. You can then give us a call on 13 17 19 or message us in the app. We’ll ask you to fill out a Transaction Dispute Form (PDF) and help you cancel your card. Learn more about how we can help.

Adapting your finances

Whether you’re going away or you need to change how you handle your money, we’re here with options to suit your situation.
