Wherever you bank, we’ve made it possible for you to share your accounts.
This is the result of a change in UK regulation called Open Banking, and means we can give you more control over your data and help you bank the way you want to.
Adding an account in your Halifax app using Open Banking is very simple. Choose your account provider, log on to their service and select the accounts that you want to share. Your login details for your other bank will never be shared with Halifax.
Once you’ve completed their security process you’ll have instant access to your accounts and transactions in one place - on your mobile app.
A secure connection will be used to share data. We’ll also use the latest security measures and industry safeguards to keep your banking details safe. The same way we do for your bank accounts.
Remember, when you’re managing your bank account it’s important that you keep yourself safe and secure online. Find out more about protecting yourself from fraud.
It’s up to you whether you want to use this service, there’s no need to opt out of anything, and none of your data will be shared unless you choose to share it.
