Why do I need to confirm beneficiaries?

For security reasons, you need to confirm new beneficiaries in e-banking or Mobile Banking using your Access Card. A prompt will appear whenever you need to confirm a beneficiary.

Good to know: Some beneficiaries, such as health insurers or telecommunications providers, have been confirmed in advance by UBS.

Limit for payments without confirming new beneficiaries

If you would prefer not to confirm your beneficiaries, you can instead set a monthly limit for online payments in e-banking or mobile banking.

Important: Please note that a one-time confirmation is needed for beneficiaries even if you have previously made payments within the defined payment limits to the same beneficiary. This also applies to beneficiaries of the new QR-bill – even if you have already made an online payment to the same beneficiary, as the QR-bill is a standalone payment method.

Go to the settings button in the top-right of the screen and click on “Settings > Security settings” and then, in the menu on the left, click “Confirmation of payees” and adjust the limit.

Go to “Settings > Security > Set up monthly transfer limits” and adjust the “Limit for payments made to new payees without any additional confirmation.”
