What is Netcode and why do I need it?

Last Updated: 26 May 2021

Netcode is a two-step verification method that's an extra layer of security to help us make sure it's really you when completing certain banking activities on your ASB account, and it's free*.

We text the Netcode to your mobile phone or send it to you on a portable Netcode token. You'll need it to:

  • Register to use the ASB Mobile Banking app.
  • Make a payment that will take you over the $1,000 daily payment threshold (or a lower amount as chosen by you).
  • Complete an online transaction with your Visa credit or debit card, depending on the risk of the transaction.
  • Change your card PIN.
  • Add Google Pay or Apple Pay to your cards via the ASB Mobile Banking app or from the Google or Apple digital wallets.
  • Make International Money Transfers (FastNet Classic internet banking only).
  • Log in to FastNet Classic internet banking (if you have Netcode at login turned on).

To register for Netcode, call us on 0800 FASTNET (0800 327 863) or +64 9 306 3185.

*Netcode via SMS is free to use if you have a New Zealand mobile phone number, but please check with your provider in case there are charges to receive international text messages. Since we rely on international phone providers to send our Netcode SMS to international phone numbers, we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to receive Netcode SMS to your international phone number.
