pushTAN-proceeding - installation and initialization of the app

­­pTAN or pushTAN is another procedure to generate TANs. Through the registration for the pushTAN procedure, your mobile device is divided into two logical channels, which however does not affect the operation of the smartphone in any way. The two channels do not know anything about each other and are thus separated, which provides the pushTAN procedure with a high level of security.

Due to statutory requirements for all banks, we will discontinue your iTAN procedure (paper iTAN list)for cash account transactions as of 14 September 2019. So-called "strong customer authentication" is required for cash account transactions. iTAN is unable to satisfy these security considerations.

For custody account holders:
You will probably no longer be able to use your current iTAN from 1 April 2020.

For cash account holders:
From 14 September 2019, you will need the pushTAN procedure for the login to the fund banking and to approve electronic payment transactions.

To apply this procedure, use the banking portal of Fondsdepot Bank. Here, enter your transaction details as usual. Subsequently, you will receive a message in the pushTAN app of Fondsdepot Bank. Check the data in this message . The TAN will only be displayed once you confirm. To confirm your transaction, enter the TAN in the respective field in the banking portal.

You need a mobile device with Internet connection, e.g. a Google Android or Apple iOS smartphone or tablet. Please note the applicable requirements for your operating systems, which you can find in the Google Play Store or in the App Store.

Henceforth, Fondsdepot Bank will only use the pTAN procedure. You can continue to use the iTAN procedure for your custody account orders until the end of March 2020. For your cash account, you will only be able to use the pTAN procedure from 14 September 2019.

From 14 September 2019,no new iTAN lists will be sent out. If you need new TANs, please switch to pTAN. You can do so via your Internet access.

After logging in to the online banking portal of Fondsdepot Bank, you can activate the pTAN procedure. You need to activate the pTAN procedure in the banking portal using an iTAN. As soon as you do so, you will receive the activation code by mail within five working days. To use the pTAN, you need our app. Further details will be provided here soon.
