Unlocking your bike

There are 3 ways to unlock your bike. Whichever way you do it, you’ll hear an unlocking noise that confirms your bike is unlocked.


Option 1: Using your phone

  • Once your bike is connected to your phone, go to the VanMoof app home screen and tap on the lock icon.

Option 2:  Using Touch Unlock

  • Make sure ‘Touch Unlock’ is turned on in the VanMoof App.
  • Stand close to your bike with your phone connected.
  • Press the bell or boost button to instantly unlock.

Option 3: Using your backup unlock code

  • When your bike isn’t connected to your phone, press the bell or boost button until you hear a confirmation sound.
  • Enter the 3-digit unlock code that you set up during registration. You do this by pressing the bell or boost button to enter your code. Once you’ve entered a digit, you must pause before entering your next digit.
  • For example if your code is 1-2-1. Press the button once, pause, then press the button two more times, pause, and press it one last time.
