Points to note while e-banking

For the dura­tion of an active e-banking ses­sion, there is open access to your sen­si­tive and pri­vate data (account details) on your system. Please con­cen­trate on your e-banking.

The most impor­tant points to remember:

  • Watch out for unusual events during any active e-banking ses­sion, and notify your finan­cial insti­tu­tion if any occur.
  • Care­fully read all con­fir­ma­tion mes­sages before con­firming them.
  • Never leave an open e-banking ses­sion unattended.

Once you have suc­cess­fully logged in, your finan­cial insti­tu­tion opens an indi­vidual, secure e-banking ses­sion for you. Sub­se­quently, access to sen­si­tive and pri­vate data (account details) on your system is open and freely acces­sible during this active phase. And not just for you as a legit­i­mate user, but also for poten­tial “free-riders”, such as mal­ware which has wormed its way in (banking Trojans).

Please con­cen­trate on your e-banking

During any active e-banking ses­sion, you should be wary of any unusual events, such as auto­matic inputs, inex­plic­able changes to trans­ac­tions, con­fir­ma­tion mes­sages appearing unbidden or sim­ilar occur­rences. If you feel that “some­thing is not quite right”, imme­di­ately ter­mi­nate the con­nec­tion and notify your finan­cial insti­tu­tion.

Finally, you should never leave any open e-banking ses­sion unat­tended so unau­tho­rised third par­ties don't get a chance to abuse this facility.

While e-banking, there is an active com­mu­ni­ca­tion link between users and their finan­cial institution.

Fig­u­ra­tively speaking, there is some­thing like a door open at the finan­cial insti­tu­tion while e-banking, which enables access to their e-banking features.
