Issues with the Nordea ID app on Apple devices

22 September 2023  Apple has released the new iOS17 version, which may cause the Nordea ID app to stop working for some customers. For this reason, we have released a new version (2.3.5) of the Nordea ID app. 

Please download the new version of the Nordea ID app and open it once before installing iOS17.

What to do if your Nordea ID app doesn’t work and your device runs iOS17 

  1. uninstall the existing Nordea ID app from your device
  2. download the Nordea ID app again from the App Store 
  3. reactivate the app using a Nordea ID app installed on another device or another Finnish bank’s online credentials or by ordering an activation code in the app delivered by text message and a PIN delivered by post.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Nordea will start paying considerably higher interest on its accounts

21 August 2023  Nordea offers its personal customers a wide range of flexible accounts for different purposes and will now increase the interest paid on some of these accounts. In September, the interest paid on several savings accounts will increase to 3% or more. From the beginning of October, the interest rate on Nordea’s current accounts will be 0.25%. 

Flexible savings accounts enable customers to deal with unexpected expenses and changing circumstances. For a long time, Nordea’s selection has included PerkAccount, which is an account intended for everyday saving, with an interest rate of 0.4–1.4% depending on the account balance. PerkAccount allows unlimited withdrawals and deposits. 

Our popular FlexiDeposit Account is intended for longer-term saving and you can withdraw money from the account when needed. The interest rate on the account is determined when you open the account and fixed for one year at a time. The interest rate offered may vary depending on the month. From the beginning of September, the interest rate on new FlexiDeposit Accounts will increase from 2.4% to 3.0%. 

Interest rates on time deposits will also increase

At the same time, the interest rates on personal customers’ time deposits will also increase from their current levels. For example, the interest paid on a 12-month time deposit will increase to 3% at minimum. The interest rate is determined when you open the account and it varies depending on the length of the deposit period, the deposit amount and the market interest rates. The rate offered to customers who do all their banking with Nordea is higher than the general market price.  Opens new window

Payment blocks for gambling services will enter into force at the beginning of 2023

Restrictions concerning payment transactions related to gambling services will enter into force in January. These restrictions target gambling operators that have no permission to market gambling services in Mainland Finland.
Payment transactions subject to the payment blocks include credit transfers, card payments and direct debits.

Payment blocks aim to protect consumers

The goal of the payment blocks is to have an impact on the range of gambling services provided in Mainland Finland, as the negative effects of gambling can be prevented effectively by influencing the availability and accessibility of gambling services.

Payment service providers, including Nordea, are obliged to block payments to gambling operators that the National Police Board has prohibited from marketing gambling services in Mainland Finland.

The National Police Board will maintain and publish a list of gambling operators

A list of companies subject to payment blocks and more information about the blocks will be published during January 2023 at

Nordea Electron cards replaced by Nordea Debit cards

9 February 2022: Visa Electron, a product of the international card company Visa, will be discontinued in 2024. This means that if you have a Nordea Electron card, we will automatically replace it with a Nordea Debit card when your card expires or you need to renew your card. You will no longer be able to pay with a Visa Electron card after April 2024.

Nordea Debit includes the same features as your Nordea Electron card. The only difference is the card’s name and design.

Your card will be replaced automatically so you don’t need to do anything.
