Barclays chat

Is it just me or is the Barclay’s spending insights in the app wonky? On iOS you cannot supposedly see the transactions that you do on the credit card, rather you only see your current accounts spending (on android you can opt to see credit card transactions split into categories).

However, despite this, some months I see the categorisation of credit card transactions and some months I just see current account transactions (including the Barclaycard payments). So the categorisation are not consistent from one month to the next!

I’ve noticed in my app there’s a Wealth Hub feature now, I know it has been mentioned before. I’m guessing they’re slowly rolling it out to customers.

The down side is that it’s not even working properly for me, keep getting a technical error when I click into anything within it.

Anyone got it working?

I can’t see a Wealth Hub in my app, but I’m not wealthy, so maybe that’s why.

How does one opt out of the Barclays data collection detailed here? (From the cashback thread!)

Seems they’ve been doing this for quite a few years considering that article is a decade old (I’m aware you might have known that, just making it clearer for others).

By closing your account.

I believe when they introduced it it became part of the overarching terms of having a current account, that is by having one, you opt in to them doing that. There’s no opting out.

Hang about, what if you’re a minor like myself?

Age of consent for these things is typically 13 I believe. For those between 11 and 13 I’m not sure. Perhaps excluded? Or maybe anyone with that account it’s just excluded anyway.

It happened a decade ago so I don’t fully remember the ins and outs.

I just know it was that moment that my financial relationship with Barclays was on the rock, and when I became really eager for someone to replace them.

Back then I remember wanting and hoping that Atom would be that bank.

So who did this? :neutral_face:

They were also ‘oblivious’ somehow, did hey not have notifications?

I’d imagine as it’s a new account, no. They probs needed the card info to set it up… Stupid old-banks.

That article made me bleugrh. “I didn’t even notice the 1k had gone”. 100pc don’t believe any of the story and evidently neither did Barclays, initially

I don’t wish to comment on the specifics of the case, but I found the corespondent insufferable. Not sure how they managed to even write to the Guardian they’re so far up their own rear end.

Oh I have a prestigious job and live in west London so it’s not like I care about that insignificant amount of money some south Londoner stole

Go and touch grass, love.
