In addition to the secured device that you use to administer your account through the Internet, it is also important to access electronic banking services through secure connections and networks that protect you and your transactions from being monitored.
Only you can ensure that the network you have selected saves your information safely.
A user is also protected by an Internet browser with a built-in false page detection function that will automatically notify you of a false page. You can find out if the browser has an antiphishing function on its home pages.
Secure home network
A well configured home wireless network is the basis for trusted connection between your secured device and the bank.
Use a personal “Firewall“ security gate.
Secure your wireless network by protocol of at least WPA2 (for older devices WPA).
Also use other, wider network settings to prevent unauthorized access of unauthorized persons to your network.
Connect only to trusted networks
Browsing pages on the Internet or accessing social networks is something other than using electronic banking services through the Internet.
To prevent data being misused never use public computers or other public devices with access to the Internet (e.g. in an Internet coffee, school or public terminals where users are changed) for electronic banking.
After finishing work, always logout from the Internet or mobile access to your bank account and close all browser windows. Closing the browser window does not ensure a safe logout and your account could remain open and could be misused.
Do not load programs from unknown sources in your computer and do not install unknown plugins in the Internet browser. They may contain programs that can copy your login names and passwords.
Be careful when opening attachments or unknown references and do not open e-mails from unknown peeople.
If you receive an e-mail or a new window opens on the screen (a “pop-up“ window), asking you to enter your personal authorization or financial data, do not reply to this e-mail and do not enter any data in the open window.
Verify a link to internet pages
Fraudulent websites faithfully imitate real pages with a very similar web addresses. Sometimes, it is very hard to discover a false site. Therefore, it is useful that most existing Internet browsers can verify if the typed address belongs to the requested page.
Search for different characters, such as an old design, grammatical and other errors.
If you want to enter the Internet banking page type the address on the keyboard.
DO NOT copy the link from a message or one that appeared in a new window. An attacker can create a page that looks very similar to the original bank page. In fact, it will re-direct you to another page without notifying you.
