Voice ID

Use your voice as your phone banking password

An easier, faster way to access phone banking

With HSBC Voice ID, you can access phone banking quickly and easily with just your voice. Instead of using your 6-digit phone banking PIN, use your voice to confirm your identity when you call us, and:

  • use a specific phrase as your password
  • speak to an agent for a few minutes to help us recognise patterns in your speech

Like your fingerprint, your voice is unique, which means you can create your own 'voice print'. Our Voice ID technology analyses your voice in seconds. It checks over 100 behavioural and physical vocal traits, including the size and shape of your mouth, how fast you talk and how you emphasise words.

Fraudsters and hackers can't replicate your voice because Voice ID is sensitive enough to detect if someone is impersonating you or playing a recording. It can even recognise your voice if you have a cold or a sore throat.

How to set up Voice ID

You can set up Voice ID if you're:

  • an HSBC Oman customer
  • over the age of 18
  • registered for phone banking


You can add Voice ID to your account at any time, in English or Arabic2.

To get started, you’ll need your 6-digit phone banking number and PIN on hand.

  1. Call 800 70100.
  2. Use your phone banking PIN to confirm your identity.
  3. Create your voiceprint by saying 'My voice is my password' up to 5 times.

The next time you call us, you won’t need your PIN. You'll just need to repeat that short, simple phrase. And don't worry about remembering it – we’ll remind you what to say.

If you've forgotten your phone banking PIN, you can reset it by calling us.
