For Online Banking
Create a robust user password
It is important for the user to create a robust password. For greater security, the password should be in line with our stricter password rules, that is,
- It must be a combination of both letters and numbers
- It can have a length of 8 to 12 characters
- It is case-sensitive
- No special characters (e.g. #!$%ˆ) and spaces are allowed, except underscore
Do not disclose the password to anyone
Do not use easy-to-remember dates or numbers to create the password
Do not use the same Internet Banking password for other online accounts
It is dangerous to share the same password for other online accounts as most non- banking systems provide easy access for password recovery.
Do not write down or store the password
- Avoid writing or storing the password in easily accessible items like a notepad or the PC
- Do not select the option on browsers for storing or retaining username and password
Do not access Online Banking from computers or devices which cannot be trusted
