Unfortunately the restrictions on the data with Barclays would require a memorable word set up to be automated. You can certainly use your pinsentry device, but because of the nature of it (that is - you need to have the device and be present), means we wouldn’t be able to automate it.
The good news is however, with Open Banking being phased in from various banks, and with QuickFile in the process of setting this up (subject to FCA approval), this may change in the future. But I can’t provide any timelines on this at the moment I’m afraid.
I just want to clarify this point too - We don’t offer a free banking feed at present, so I’m not sure which one you’re referring to here. However, we did used to have the old QuickFile Barclays feed, but this worked in the same way as the above. The Chrome plugin does work differently, but this requires you to be present to log in anyway.
If you mean more of the Power User Subscription, this doesn’t affect any of the core functionality of your account - it just adds to it (e.g. segmented profit and loss reports, split tagging, advanced design customisation, etc.)
