Points to remember when log­ging out

Notify your finan­cial insti­tu­tion that you have fin­ished e-banking so that your ses­sion can be ter­mi­nated securely.

The most impor­tant points to remember:

  • Ter­mi­nate your e-banking ses­sion cor­rectly via the func­tion pro­vided for it (usu­ally indi­cated by the terms “log off”, “log out” or “exit”).
  • Please clear your browser cache every time you log out of any e-banking ses­sions.

Ter­mi­nate your e-banking ses­sion securely

When you have fin­ished your e-banking, don’t simply close the web­site or browser or switch your device off straight away. Instead, please ter­mi­nate your e-banking ses­sion cor­rectly via the func­tion pro­vided for it (usu­ally indi­cated by the terms “log off”, “log out” or “exit”).

This noti­fies your finan­cial insti­tu­tion that you have fin­ished your e-banking ses­sion, so the con­nec­tion is ter­mi­nated prop­erly. When log­ging in the next time, users will then once again be asked for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Delete your browser his­tory

A variety of data (texts, images, etc.) are stored tem­porarily on your device while surfing the Internet - i.e. also while e-banking. These could offer cer­tain oppor­tu­ni­ties for attack. You should there­fore remove these tem­porarily stored data after you have fin­ished e-banking, and please clear your so-called “browser his­tory” every time you log out of any e-banking ses­sions.

You should there­fore please clear your so-called “browser his­tory” every time you log out of any e-banking ses­sions.

Alter­na­tively, you can also open a so-called incog­nito or pri­vate mode window in your browser before log­ging in, which will ensure no data are stored in the first place.

When log­ging out, the ses­sion started with the e-banking system when log­ging in is ter­mi­nated.

Fig­u­ra­tively speaking, the finan­cial insti­tu­tion is closing the door again, which was opened to users when log­ging in - a closed door is safer than an open one.
