How we protect your business 

We use leading security technology and fraud prevention techniques to protect you and your money online.  

  • Secure log on - you can create a secure link between your trusted device and your online banking profile. Each time you log on, the digits we’ll ask for from your memorable information will be different.
  • Automatic log off - you can set up how long your online banking session stays inactive before it logs you off.
  • Fraud detection - we monitor your account(s) for any unusual activity.
  • Account suspension - we’ll temporarily disable your account(s) after a number of incorrect logon attempts, in case fraudsters are trying to guess your details.
  • Fraud guarantee - if you become a victim of fraud, we’ll refund your money as long as you’ve been careful. Make sure you’re aware of our Fraud Guarantee.
  • Confirmation of payee - when you add a new payee, we automatically check the payment details match our records to make sure you’re paying the right person or business. Learn more about confirmation of payee.
  • Strong customer authentication - new industry regulation means you may see an extra security check when you buy something online. Find out more about strong customer authentication.
