Bank PIN

If you’ve hooked yourself up with the RuneScape Authenticator, you have a complex password and you’re not clicking any suspicious links or visiting strange websites, the chances of someone accessing your account are near impossible but it’s always good to be prepared just in case!

Throughout your adventures you may come across and gain a lot of different rare items & wealth. Placing these items in the bank will assist you greatly and keep your wealth secure should you die in the wilderness or your account's security is compromised.

If wealth & rare items are lost or taken, J Mods do not have the ability to place them back onto the account. Check out this article for all things lost items.

What is a Bank PIN?

A Bank PIN is a great security feature that can be used to protect your in game wealth once placed in your bank. There is a need to keep our hard earned riches safe and secure from pesky hijackers, therefore the Bank of Gielinor has given each bank account the option of a PIN system or setting up the authenticator to cover players’ banks.

The Bank PIN works just like a PIN code for your credit card with a 4 digit code that needs to be entered before you gain access to the contents of your bank. You can create your own bank pin by going to any bank in Gielinor and following these steps.

Please be aware that Jagex will never ask you for your bank pin. The bank PIN should be known to you and no one else!

There's no such thing as "too secure"!

The Bank PIN is the next layer of security which will keep anyone from pinching your hard earned valuables. Once set, we recommend that you keep this code to yourself and do not show anyone – even your friends and family. We also recommend that you do not write the code down or put it your in-game notes and do not choose a simple code could be easily guessed such as ‘1234’.

Once you’ve chosen a memorable Bank PIN, it’s a good idea to start depositing your most expensive and rare items in your bank when you log off. The Bank PIN will give you peace of mind when you are not playing RuneScape and it only takes a few seconds to retrieve items when you next log in. You also have the choice of setting a removal time should you wish to change your Bank PIN. We offer a 3 or 7 day waiting period to remove the PIN but for maximum security we recommend the 7 day waiting period!

Changing your Bank PIN

If you know your Bank PIN and want to change it, you can do so by following these instructions!

Removing your Bank PIN

If you've forgotten your PIN or need to remove it for any other reason, you can do so by talking to a Banker, clicking "I'd like to check my PIN settings" and then "Delete your PIN". This can take between 3 and 7 days to reset depending on your recovery delay settings.

While you wait for this to reset, you should be able to deposit items into your bank without the need to enter your Bank PIN using a Bank deposit box. These boxes are located in banks and other locations around Gielinor.

You will not be able to withdraw items until the new PIN is fully reset but still have the ability to deposit items by going to any bank and depositing items using the deposit box.
