How do I use the TWINT widget for iOS?

The TWINT prepaid app as well as the TWINT apps from numerous banks provide iOS users with a widget for their phone’s lock screen and the home screen. This means that certain functions within the TWINT app, such as payment at the cash register, can be launched directly from your smartphone’s lock screen without the app having to be opened beforehand. Further information on the solution for Android users is available here.

Visit the Apple website to find out how to add a widget to your iPhone.

TWINT offers the following three widgets: “Pay”, “Send money” and “Request money”.

To use the “Pay” widget, for example, from your lock screen, please proceed as follows:

  • Tap the TWINT “Pay” widget on your lock screen
  • In one action, unlock your iPhone and your TWINT app at the same time
  • The QR code scanner in the TWINT app is now automatically opened
  • Scan the QR code as you normally would

Please note that this widget may not be available in every TWINT app. Should you not be able to find the TWINT widget in your app, please contact the Customer Service team for your TWINT app.
