Nordea Codes app

The code app allows you to give up the paper code card and striking out codes. With the app, you can identify yourself and confirm transactions in Netbank, Mobile Bank and Nordea Customer Service. You can also confirm your online payments securely with the app. You can find the instructions to install the app from this page.

Dear customer,

Please note that the use of paper code cards has ended.

From now on, you will need either the code app or a code calculator as a means of authentication when logging in to Netbank. If you do not yet have the activation code and the temporary PIN needed for activating the code app, you can get them by calling Nordea Business Centre, tel 0200 26262. After that you can start using the code app right away. Alternatively, you can order the code calculator. Read more about the code calculator. Opens new window

Secure use of online access codes

Never surrender your access codes to another person. Memorise your user ID and the PIN code to Nordea Codes. Keep your user ID separate from your code app.

How does the app work?

When you enter your personal PIN in the code app, it will give changing transaction-specific codes to you. If your mobile device has a data connection, the app will send the code to Nordea in an encrypted network on your behalf.

Without a data connection, the app will show the code on the mobile device's display, where you can copy it to the service you want to use.

The app's security is based on four factors: PIN code, mobile device, access codes, and connection. Always make sure that the device you use is passcode-protected. Always check each transaction and never confirm transactions you have not initiated yourself.

PIN code

PIN code

  • Only you know your PIN code.
  • The code is both application- and device-specific.
  • If you enter an incorrect PIN code five times in a row, the app will be locked for 24 hours.
  • The PIN code will not be saved on the mobile device. The PIN code will be erased from the device memory as soon as the app has finished calculating one-time codes
