Basler Kantonalbank (BKB) PhotoTAN
Why not the highly secure login and approval process? It couldn’t be simpler
What is the PhotoTAN device for?
PhotoTAN is a login process whereby the PhotoTAN device generates your password suffix for BKB-E-Banking login or payment approval in BKB-E-Banking.
How does the device work?
The reader device is not connected to your PC or to a network. Scan with the camera of your PhotoTAN device the coloured mosaic on the screen to generate a personal, one-off code for login or payment approval in BKB-E-Banking. PhotoTAN login is available only for BKB-E-Banking (not Mobile Banking).
What have you to know?
No special technical requirements are necessary for your log-in via PhotoTAN. All you need do is connect the device to your BKB-E-Banking contract first. The straightforward set-up takes just a few steps. It isn’t necessary to install any software or connect to a network. And you needn’t connect the PhotoTAN device to a PC.

The Basler Kantonalbank PhotoTAN device works using a patented technology whereby a mosaic image is displayed on a BKB-E-Banking login page. This graphic cryptogram is composed of a matrix of coloured dots. The PhotoTAN device deciphers the code for login or payment approval from this matrix. Only one PhotoTAN device can be activated per BKB-E-Banking contract.
Have you already ordered your PhotoTAN and received the device?
If so, you can activate the PhotoTAN device in just a few steps: start the login process in BKB-E-Banking and activate “PhotoTAN”. You will need your personal PhotoTAN activation letter and the password you received by post from Basler Kantonalbank.
