To use the IBAN scanner functionality within our mobile app, KBC needs to access your camera. This scanner allows you to take a picture of the IBAN for a payment you wish to make rather than having to enter the full IBAN. If you don’t decide to use the IBAN scanner, we will not access your camera, but you will not be able to access the KBC Mobile banking app.
