You obtained a new mobile number or email address? Do not forget to update your Fidor bank account to ensure that you still have access to your banking.

To update your personal data within the online banking portal go to Einstellungen → Zugangsdaten. By using your FIN (Fidor Identification Number) you can easily change your personal data yourself.

If you want to change other personal data such as your postal address, you can do this directly under Einstellungen → Stammdaten.


If it is not possible for you as a business customer to change your personal data online, send us your change request as a photo or scan attached to an e-mail. Please note that we need your original signature on the change request. This also applies if your previous mobile number or e-mail address no longer exists.
