Strong Password

Use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols to make it unique.

When providing answers to security questions setup by the bank, they don’t have to be genuine.

Keep changing the password at least once in 2 months.


Protection Software

Use antivirus software on your system which prevents attacks from trojans and other malware.
