Current information: Due to new protective features in the photoTAN app against the tapping of key material, the app requires the right to access the hardware identity as of version 9.0.0. This data remains on the device and is not transmitted to Commerzbank. Unfortunately, it is not possible to request this right individually. The overall right "Phone function and contacts" must always be requested (partly different designation depending on the Android version).

The right is absolutely necessary to use the app. Subsequent removal of the right can result in the app no longer being able to be used to control orders, as the keys are no longer available.

What do I need the photoTAN app for?

The photoTAN app is one of our security factors. The photoTAN is an important part of every login and transaction in your online and mobile banking. It is used to verify the order data you have entered and to generate the transaction number (TAN).

How does photoTAN-Push work?

The push function of our new photoTAN app is particularly convenient. As soon as a new order is available for you to approve, we send you a notification to your smartphone when you use photoTAN-Push. When you then open the photoTAN app, the order to be approved is displayed directly for you to check. If the data displayed is correct, you release the order with just one click.

How does photoTAN scan work?

After placing an order in Online Banking, a mosaic-like colorful graphic appears on the monitor. You scan this with the photoTAN app. A TAN is displayed immediately. You can then check the essential details of your order again in the app. If everything is correct, simply enter the TAN on the computer and the order is confirmed.
