What’s itsme®?

Arrivederci card reader. Your services are no longer needed to log on to the Hello bank! website. Thanks to itsme®, you’ll only need your smartphone and a 5-digit code to log in and make your payments safely. And because it’s free of charge, what do we say? Thanks itsme®!

1 If you have become a Hello bank! customer online and you have not become a BNP Paribas Fortis customer in a branch, then you’ll need an extra step to activate itsme®. You’d best contact our Hello team.


Your ultra secure digital identity


Ultra secure because you’ll need 3 identity factors: your smartphone, SIM card and personal code. Missing one? itsme® won’t work.

itsme® is brought to you by Belgian Mobile ID. The name probably doesn’t ring a bell, but it’s nothing less than a consortium made up of the country’s largest banks and mobile network operators.

So you see, you can’t get much safer than itsme®.2
