Logging in and out in KBC Touch
How do I log in to KBC Touch on my PC?
1. Log in and sign transactions using your phone & itsme®
It’s handy, fast and always on you: use your smartphone and the free itsme app to log in and authorise payments. You can find more information about itsme here.
2. Logging in and signing using your debit card and card reader
To do this, you need your KBC Debit Card and a KBC Card Reader equipped with a scan facility. You can log in by scanning the barcode. If you don't want to log in using the barcode, you'll need to generate an 8-digit start code instead on your card reader to do it. Watch the film clip on how to log in.
How do I log out of KBC Touch?
Click or tap your name or photo at the bottom left of the screen, select 'Log out' and then 'Log out' in the pop-up window. KBC Touch logs you out automatically if you're inactive for five minutes thanks to a built-in security feature.
I can no longer log in using my PIN on my tablet. What should I do?
If your PIN doesn't work anymore when you try to log in to KBC Touch on your tablet, tap the 'Remove user' button at the top right of the log-in screen and confirm using the 'trash can' icon.
Next, tap ‘New user’ and follow the steps on the screen. To do this, you need to use your debit card and a KBC Card Reader equipped with a scan facility just once. If you don't have this type of card reader, be sure to request one.
