Can I use Tide without a mobile device?


I can’t use the Tide app on my mobile device because I run a customised operating system. I do not have another mobile device. Only a laptop computer.

Can I access a desktop or webapp to sign up to Tide or do I need to head down to the high street to start a traditional bank account?


Hi @sitechindustries! Tide is a mobile-first banking service, therefore you would require the mobile app to create an account. While we do also have a web client at, you do need to use the QR scanner found within your app to log in.


Are you planning on developing this service anytime soon? As I cannot use the app on my mobile devise too.
I guess I will just have to continue with the traditional business banking.


Hi @Forever,

We don’t have immediate plans for this. However, we’ll be sure to update the community if this changes in the future.
