Setting up the Sparkassen-App
on your Android device

This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the  Sparkassen-App on your Android device.

In case you are using an android device, switch to the set up for the
 Sparkassen-App on Apple iOS.

Registration for online banking

Before installing the app, you have to log in on our website and follow these steps:

  • change the start PIN into a PIN that is known only to you
  • configure a username (optional)

We have compiled an aid for the initial setup in a detailed manual. 

Download the App from the Google Play Store and install it on your device

Open up the Google Play Store and look for the word „Sparkasse“or scan the QR code with your Android device and download the Sparkassen-App.

Open the app after the installation is completed.

Create a password for the Sparkassen-App

Now you should create your own password to protect your personal data. Use a secure password.

For a secure password, use:

  • with at least eight letters
  • a number (optional)
  • a special character (optional)
  • uppercase and lowercase letters (optional)

ATTENTION: This password has to be different to the one you are using for Online-Banking or pushTAN.  

The keyword allows you to open the "Sparkassen-App". Alternatively, you can use your fingerprint for the touch-ID.

Important: In the event of a password being lost, you need to uninstall the App and establish it new.

Confirm receiving push messages and location-based messages

To receive notifications from the app (for example,  Kontowecker) in form of pushTan-messages or location-based-messages, allow the app to send you information.

Therefor you just need to accept both dialogues.
