HSBC Online Banking activation

We're currently making improvements to our Online Banking service.

If you registered for Online Banking prior to the 17th December 2014 it's not possible for you to activate your existing Secure Key and you will need to re-start your registration.

If you registered for Online Banking after this date, please log on to Online Banking entering your username, memorable answer and your password, from here you will be prompted to activate your Secure Key.

We apologise for any inconvenience which this delay may cause. Once you are registered, we look forward to introducing you to Online Banking, including the exciting enhancements we're working on now.

Learning from complaints

We want to learn from your experience to make things better. We record the details of every complaint we receive so we can identify areas for improvement. We've recently made some changes in response to your feedback.

  • We've introduced Voice ID to make it easier for you to speak to our contact centre agents
  • Our branch staff can now help you to use our On-line banking services
  • We now send text alerts to support you at key milestones in your mortgage journey

But there is always room for improvement. Our current priorities are to:

  • Listen to your complaints and resolve these wherever possible when you first contact us
  • Look at the root causes of our complaints and the impact for our customers, so we can fix the underlying problems
  • Look at all the different interactions our customers have with us, so we can make their whole banking experience better
  • Simplify our products and services and the processes behind them
