How to register for Netcode

Netcode is a form of two-factor authentication, which is simply an extra layer of security for when you’re completing certain banking activities with us online.

How does Netcode work?

When a Netcode is required, we will automatically send a temporary code to your mobile phone via text message. From there you can enter the code to complete your desired activity in FastNet Classic internet banking.

To protect you and your accounts from online fraudsters, you’ll be prompted to enter a Netcode when you do the following activities in FastNet Classic internet banking:

  • Combined daily payments over $1,000
  • Changing your card PIN
  • Making international money transfers

To sign up for Netcode, or to update your registered Netcode mobile number:

  1. Call us on 0800 327 863 (overseas +64 9 306 3000 toll charges may apply). You can also visit any ASB branch and bring a valid photo ID.

  2. We will ask you some security questions to ensure it’s really you, but remember, we will never ask you for your passwords or pin numbers.

  3. You will need to provide a mobile number that you want your Netcode to be sent to.

  4. Once your registration is complete, you can start receiving Netcodes straight away.

Netcode when using the ASB Mobile Banking app.

By Netcode-verifying your app, you won't need to enter a Netcode if you're making payments via the ASB Mobile Banking app. If you do not Netcode verify the app, your daily limit is $1,000 (or a lower amount as chosen by you).

If you are registered for Netcode before you register for the ASB Mobile Banking app, you simply need to verify your device when prompted while completing the app registration process.

If you already use the ASB Mobile Banking app, and register (as above) for Netcode after using the app for the first time, you will then need to follow these steps to verify your device:

  1. Login to your ASB mobile banking app.

  2. Select Settings in the menu, then select security.

  3. Select Netcode Verified, then select Send Netcode.

  4. You will be sent a Netcode to your Netcode registered mobile number. Enter the Netcode.

  5. You have successfully verified your device.
