Internet Banking security
1bank offers the latest security available for the Internet today, including:
1. Extended Validation SSL encryption technology
Our internet banking service uses Extended Validation SSL encryption technology. Αn Extended Validation SSL Certificate will cause the address bar of the latest web browsers to turn green. Only the valid Bank of Cyprus Internet Banking website will display the address bar in green.
2. User ID and Passcode
In order to prevent unauthorised access to your accounts, you are given an eight-digit User ID and a six-digit Passcode. You should be the only one who knows your passcode. Υου can change it at any time.
3. Third party transfers require a Digipass device
In order to further enhance security, a Digipass device is required to perform third party transfers. The Digipass device generates one-time dynamic secret codes, which are used together with the User ID and Passcode.
4. Monitoring of the System
We are constantly monitoring every access to our systems to ensure maximum level of security and privacy.
5. Automatic Log-off
You will be automatically logged-off if your session stays idle for 10 minutes. This will prevent possible access to your accounts by another person in case you leave your computer unattended. You will need to re-enter your codes in order to proceed with your transactions.
6. Maximum Security with the use of Firewalls
Τhe access to our internet banking systems and databases is controlled by Firewalls. Unauthorised access to our systems is denied. Our systems are also part of the bank's internal network and they don't have a direct connection to the Internet..
