Know who you are dealing with
- Always use ProCredit Bank’s secure e-banking platform. Make sure that there is a locked padlock or unbroken key icon in the bottom right of your browser window before entering any personal information. The
- bank’s Internet address will change from ‘http’ to ‘https’ when a secure connection has been established.
- You can check ProCredit Bank’s security certificate by clicking on the padlock which appears on your browser
Keep passwords safe
- Always memorise your password and other security information and promptly destroy the notice containing this information.
- Take the appropriate steps to keep your password and other security information secret at all times; never reveal it to family, friends, or anyone else.
- If calling the bank, be aware of which information you will be asked for: you will never be asked for your password.
- Ensure that you log out properly after doing your online banking.
- Never save your password on your computer unless it is protected (e.g. password manager).
- Never leave your computer unattended when logged into Internet banking.
- We recommend changing your password regularly. If you change your password, choose one which cannot be guessed easily.
- Do not use your online banking password for any other websites.
Keep your computer secure
