One thing is sure, smartphones do not last forever. Those wretched things tend to go missing just when you absolutely need them. But, don't worry, if you abide by this simple rule, your access to your accounts will remain guaranteed.

Get yourself an extra 'SOFTKEY'!

1. How exactly do you do that? 

  • Log into the transaction site using your current Softkey (or Hardkey).
  • Click on your name in the top-right corner of your screen and then click on ‘Preferences’ and ‘Authentication’ (under ‘Security’).
  • Click on ‘Add an extra Softkey’ and confirm.

Next, take your spare device (iPad, other smartphone) and proceed as follows:

 Go to the App Store or Google Play Store and download the Keytrade Bank app

  • Create a profile
  • Select Softkey
  • Choose and confirm your PIN.
  • Scan the code on your transaction site using the reserve device

Your extra Softkey is now ready to be used.
