Mobile Banking Security Tips

01 Jan 2018

  1. Configure your mobile device for auto-lock when it is left unused for a certain period of time.
  2. Avoid leaving your device unattended in public places. Keep it in a secure location.
  3. Delete the mobile banking application before replacing your mobile device with a new one.
  4. Use the Logout button when your mobile banking activities are complete.
  5. Download applications only from authorized official app stores. Fraudulent apps are often designed with names that look like real apps.
  6. Take advantage of the multi-factor authentication solutions provided by the Bank.
  7. Turn off the Bluetooth function when you are performing online banking activities.
  8. Avoid rooting/jailbreaking your mobile device to prevent circumventing the security restrictions put in place by the operating system. In that case a malware may take over your phone and make it act behind your back in many ways (i.e. collect personal data such as passwords, usernames, credit card details)
