  3. Now, select "Yes, I really want a Bank PIN. I will never forget it!."


  4. The next screen will prompt you to enter the Bank PIN you would like to use. Select the digits of your Bank PIN. To ensure you that you clicked one of the numbers, a helpful reminder has been added to the top right hand corner of the corner. One of the 4 "?" marks will change into a "*", each time you enter a digit. Due to security reasons the numbers will change order while you enter the digits.

    Note: Do not use your birthday, cellphone PIN or real-life bank PIN as your RuneScape Bank PIN as some of your friends or relatives might know this information and might try to hack into your bank account.

    Enter PIN

    If you enter a too easy PIN number (e.g. 3333), the following message will appear:

  5. Once you have entered your Bank PIN, you will be prompted to enter it once more as a confirmation. Due to security reason, you will have to wait seven days before you will be able to use your Bank PIN. Even if your Bank PIN is pending, you will be able to access your bank, but you will be asked if you have set a Bank PIN and if you want to continue.

    If you enter the wrong Bank PIN, the following message will appear.
