  • Yolt works closely with banks included in Open Banking, an initiative that connects us to the UK’s high street banks using their APIs. 

    It’s also worth mentioning that we are licensed as a Third Party Provider (TPP) and appear on the FCA register as part of ING Bank's Dutch banking license.

    As a result of PSD2 and Open Banking, all banks in the UK are required to allow access to customer data. The Open Banking API is a great way to make this happen, but only the CMA9 (the 9 largest UK banks offering personal and small business accounts) are required to use APIs.  As such, if some banks choose to use other methods, we'll use a regulated financial data provider instead.

  • We're constantly looking to add new banks and institutions to make Yolt useful for everyone! If you’re bank isn’t listed, you can send a request in Yolt by heading to the Settings page found in the Accounts tab and tapping on the Contact Yolt option. This means that when we add support for the bank you've requested, we'll send you an update.

  • API stands for ‘Application Programming Interface’. It’s a piece of software that enables the exchange of information between programs and authorises a specific operation. Open Banking requires that several banks make APIs available, enabling individuals and third parties to access financial data securely.

  • Open Banking and PSD2 are often talked about as one, but they were developed separately and are now happily coming together.  Open Banking is a UK initiative aiming to open up the retail banking market whereas PSD2 is EU Legislation. Whilst Open Banking and PSD2 don’t have exactly the same scope or rules, they are coming into line with each other and do open up great new solutions for everyone.

  • A TPP (Third Party Provider) is the name given to services like Yolt.

    As a third party provider, we must be registered with, and regulated by, the FCA or a similar regulator in another EU member state. In our case, we're regulated by the European Central Bank and Dutch National Bank (as we are owned by ING Bank N.V).

  • If your account supports Open Banking but you can't add it, it might be because we are still in a managed rollout phase. As we work with your banks to ensure the optimal experience, we'll be easing users in phases.

    If your account does not support Open Banking, you can still sync accounts using the existing method until an API is available for you to use. You can view our list of supported banks and accounts here.

  • For the past year we have been syncing accounts to Yolt by using a trusted banking data partner. They have been arranging the secure handling and processing of banking data for many years in the UK and other countries around the world. We still use this method for accounts that do not currently support Open Banking.

    With Open Banking, we can connect directly to some banks via their own APIs, essentially cutting out the middle man. 

  • Following the Open Banking launch in January 2018, the biggest nine banks and building societies in the UK are required to create APIs for licensed and regulated providers to access. Naturally, some banks will be ready before others. You can click here for the most updated list of available Open Banking accounts.


  • From January 2018, Current Accounts held with the nine largest personal and small business current account providers (referred to as the 'CMA 9') will provide Open Banking APIs. The availability of these APIs does depend on the banks taking part, as some will be available before others.

    Our hope is that Open Banking will extend its reach and support API access for a wider range of products, such as savings accounts, pensions, mortgages and credit cards.

  • As of the 13th of January 2018, all banks and building societies in the UK are making their customer data accessible to regulated and licensed third parties such as Yolt and as a result have altered their terms and conditions to reflect this change. Nine of the biggest banks and building societies will provide this data using APIs for current and personal accounts, as will some others, and for accounts without an API we use a trusted data partner.

Yolt and Your Data

  • For Open Banking, your login credentials are never stored on our servers. Your transaction data, balance, and other data you share with Yolt is stored using state-of-the-art encryption so that you can use the app. 

    That's why we ask you to unlock Yolt using a PIN, fingerprint or FaceID. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have physical, electronic and operational measures in place, which secure the user information that we hold. We have run appropriate penetration and security tests to ensure your data is protected using bank grade security.

We have run appropriate penetration and security tests to ensure your data is protected using bank grade security. 

  • When you add your account you'll securely sync the following:

    Transactions (usually the previous twelve months, depending on your bank)
    Account Balance
    Direct Debits and Standing Orders
    Basic account information, such as overdraft limit, interest rate, monthly account fees.

    If you are syncing with Yolt via Open Banking, you will not be asked to share your password, other than with your bank. If you use the normal sync route, you’d sync your accounts within Yolt itself.

  • We respect your privacy and personal information. Yolt has been designed to provide insights while also keeping your details and data private. We will therefore only use the information that you agreed to share with us to further develop the app and provide other useful services to you. We do not sell your data.

  • You can delete your account at any point. We will remove your data from our systems in accordance with data protection regulations.

    The quickest way to delete your Yolt account is by heading over to Accounts tab and tap on the Settings icon on the top-left corner of the screen. Select Your Profile > Delete My Account. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete your account and all associated data.

  • Yes. We can do this for you. Please email us at hello@yolt.com. Remember to include: Your name, phone number, and email address to verify your identity.

  • If you do decide to leave us, your personal data is deleted in accordance with general data protection regulations (GDPR).

    Please note that if you only delete the app off your phone, and not the Yolt account itself, Yolt would still have your details on record. You must ensure that you delete your account by heading to the Your Profile section in the Settings page found through the Accounts tab to delete your account completely.

  • At Yolt, we regularly run appropriate penetration and security tests to ensure your data is secured. As a licensed and regulated TPP, and as a venture of ING Bank N.V. we are held to the same security standards as any bank. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure the data in our app is protected with bank level security using physical, electronic and operational measures.

    As a user, you should protect your device and the contents within it. Yolt is protected by a fingerprint, PIN code or facial recognition.

    We would never contact you to ask you to confirm or provide us with account information, passwords, PINs or other personally identifiable information.

    If you lose your phone, you can get in touch with us and we can remotely delete your account.

  • Your phone number is an easy way to verify that you’re a real person. We send you a temporary security code during onboarding that activates the app before requesting a 5-digit PIN.

  • Due to security reasons, we cannot reset your PIN. This means you’ll have to get your recovery code (instructions below) and re-install Yolt. You'll be prompted to insert your code in the onboarding screen, and you'll be right back up and running.

Identity Verification

  • Know Your Customer (KYC) is a EU-wide financial service regulation that requires the verification of your identity. It is part of EU and local Anti-Money Laundering legislation, sanctions laws and is required for services under the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2). KYC aims to prevent corruption, terrorism, fraud and money laundering, and keeps financial services safe, clean and secure.

  • Basically, we need to verify that you are who you say you are. Your submission is validated against policies imposed on us under AML financial service regulations. KYC enables Yolt to be kept safe and will support the development of even more features to improve your Yolt experience.

  • To continue using Yolt, you will have to go through ID verification. If you don’t submit the required information or if your submission is rejected, we’re legally prevented from giving you access to Yolt and you’ll be unable to continue using the app.

  • The process of KYC is simple and your submission should only take a few minutes to complete. You’ll be guided through the following steps:

    1. Snap a selfie

    2. Answer a few questions (e.g. nationality and residential address)

    3. Upload a photo of an official document (we’ll let you know what document type is required)

  • KYC submissions are reviewed between Monday to Friday 6am - 10pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am – 8pm. Once submitted, you’ll receive a notification to let you know if your submission was successful, rejected or if more information is required.


  • Yolt has been designed to provide you with smart insights while also keeping your details and data private.

    The data you provide to us is safely stored in highly secured environments. As a licensed and regulated payment service provider, and as part of ING Bank N.V., we are held to the same security standards as any bank. Our technology suppliers are also bound by the same standards and measures. Your data is always stored within the European Union.

    Here’s an overview of our main licenses:

    • We are supervised under GDPR by the European data protection authorities

    • We are a licensed Third Party Provider under UK Open Banking

    • We are supervised by the European Central Bank via ING Bank N.V

    You can read more about our data, privacy, and security measures at www.yolt.com and in our privacy policy on www.yolt.com/privacy.

  • No, we respect your privacy and do not sell your data. We will use this information to verify your identity and where relevant, to update the data we hold about you. If you want to reuse this data on the Yolt Platform for other purposes (e.g. if you would like to register with a specific partner or connection that also needs to verify your identity) you can, but we will always ask for your explicit consent.

  • • If your ID verification is successful and you are accepted, you may continue using Yolt.

    • If more information is required, this could be due to a number of reasons including: mismatched data, incorrect or damaged documents or that your selfie does not meet the necessary requirements. Please check the reason listed in the app and try again. If you require further guidance, get in touch with our customer support team at hello@yolt.com.

    • If your submission has been rejected because we are unable to identify you, authenticate your identity or validate your identity against our KYC and risk management framework, your account will be suspended and you will no longer have access to the Yolt app. You’ll be able to export your data from the settings menu in the next 60 days. After this point, your account and data will be deleted in accordance with GDPR.

  • No. There can be several reasons why a submission might be accepted or rejected. These are based on KYC legislation, our policies, risk management framework and our business decisions. We are prevented from disclosing specific details about a submission. As we provide our service through a mobile app and to a large number of users across multiple markets, we are not able to repeat the KYC checks, conduct them in another way (such as visiting a bank branch) or apply any enhanced due diligence to investigate further.

  • You’ll be prompted (and reminded) to confirm your identity when you join Yolt and before:

    • Using Yolt Pay (for cumulative transfers above £1000)

    • Using aggregation services (such as adding an account)

    • Signing up with one of our partners

Questions about the App

  • Accounts syncing via Open Banking will automatically refresh up to four times a day, and normal accounts will refresh twice a day.

    You can manually refresh your accounts at any time, by pulling down on the Accounts tab in Yolt.

  • For security reasons, we can’t reset or resend your recovery code. If you have access to your old phone, you can log in to Yolt and view your code.

    If you can’t do that, you’ll have to create a new Yolt account and sync your accounts again. But don’t worry, it only takes a few moments and you’ll still import previous spending data (although any previous budgets and recategorisation will be lost).

  • Not right now. As we work on creating a way to move accounts to the new Open Banking connection, you will need to remove your existing account and re-add it using the Open Banking sync method (if your bank supports Open Banking).

Yolt Pay

  • Yolt Pay, currently in beta, is our new payments feature which lets you initiate money transfers between your accounts and pay others using Open Banking APIs. You can now keep track of your accounts in the app and move money between them to help keep you on top of your spending!

This balance can be tracked against your previous and current pay cycle spend. Want to edit your Overall budget? Simply tap the three dots in the top right corner of the tile and select 'edit tile' to get started.

  • There are now two ways to see how much you've spent per category and track the amounts from one payday to the next. To get started:

    1. Scroll down to the Categories section of your Dashboard and tap on the "Add a new budget" card.

    2. Head to the Transactions tab, tap on the Categories label and select a category. At the top of the next screen, you'll see the option to set a budget.

    Once you've selected a category and set a budget for it, the new card will appear on your Dashboard.

  • You may have noticed that one or two elements have been removed from the Dashboard. This is due to certain features no longer serving the purpose they were initially designed for. However, you can still view transactions grouped by Merchant via the Transactions tab.
