Is it better to enroll my account in BPI Online?
Yes, it is good to have a BPI Online account because you can better monitor your accounts.
Besides, it can provide advanced security features to your account, such as fingerprint or face ID login, mobile key, and transaction confirmation email.
Can I have 2 BPI Online accounts?
Although you can create another BPI Online account using another email, it may create confusion or problems later.
It is better to maintain just one account under your name because you can add all your BPI accounts there anyway.
Note that before you can enroll the duplicate BPI accounts to BPI Online, you need to deactivate your account first.
Therefore, BPI accounts can only be enrolled under one BPI Online account, so creating more than one online account wouldn’t make sense.
Is my phone linked to my BPI account?
Using the BPI Mobile app, you can link your device to your BPI account.
By doing so, financial transactions can be successfully processed or approved through that device.
The first device linked to your BPI account will be considered the primary device.
Can I link more than one device to my BPI account?
You can link another device, such as a phone or a tablet, to your BPI account.
You need to log in to that device through the BPI Mobile app and verify the device using OTP or Mobile Key.
Upon successful linking, it will be considered a secondary device.
Can I swap my primary and secondary devices for the BPI Mobile account?
Yes, you can set your secondary device as your new primary device to access the BPI Mobile and use all of its security features.
You need to enable Mobile Key on the new device by following these steps:
Step 1: Log in to your account in BPI Mobile.
Step 2: Go to Authentication under Account Maintenance.
Step 3: Enable Mobile Key and tap OK to approve the change.
Step 4: Provide a 6-digit PIN.
Step 5: Input the OTP that will be sent to you.
You can also enable biometric security for the Mobile Key for smoother transactions.
What is the BPI Mobile Key?
The Mobile Key is a feature available for those with a BPI Online account.
It is an alternative to OTP when verifying your transactions, which could be helpful at times when there are network delays in sending OTPs.
You can select either a 6-digit PIN or your biometric data using the Mobile Key.
Why does my account keep on getting locked?
If you frequently notice that your account is locked by BPI even though you haven’t locked your access, it could be due to other people trying to use your account.
BPI automatically locks accounts with multiple failed login attempts.
The best option is to delete your entire BPI Online account through Lock My Access, deactivate it, and start a new account.
Suppose you haven’t shared your username to anyone and still experience the problem. In that case, it could be possible that some people are guessing usernames, or there is a security compromise in some of your accounts or devices.
You can easily add or delete your BPI Online account for various purposes.
Just head over to your account or request assistance from customer service.
