Virtual Keyboard
26. Virtual Keyboard has been developed as a measure against viruses that trace pounded keys. It allows access by using the mouse only, without using the keyboard. To access a financial institutions online banking facility, a customer with Internet access would need to register with the institution for the service, and set up some password (under various names) for customer verification. The password for online banking is normally not the same as for telephone banking. Financial institutions now routinely allocate customers numbers (also under various names), whether or not customers have indicated an intention to access their online banking facility. Customers numbers are normally not the same as account numbers, because a number of customer accounts can be linked to the one customer number. The customer can link to the customer number any account which the customer controls, which may be cheque, savings, loan, credit card and other accounts. Customer numbers will also not be the same as any debit or credit card issued by the financial institution to the customer. .....
Single Use Log In PIN
27. To make banking transactions safer, a single use log in PIN to be used to access TEB E Banking is sent to the customers registered phone number via SMS. It generates a personal and single use PIN that cannot be known by any party other than the customer and that cannot be used again. The PIN that arrives via SMS is valid for 3 minutes and once the time is over it is de validated. This way, secure access to TEB E Banking anywhere is assured and all that is needed is a mobile phone. .....
Password
28. You need a username and a password to log in to TEB E Banking. When the access is made with your username and password, you will be asked for the PIN at the second stage. To access online banking, a customer would go to the financial institutions secured website, and enter the online banking facility using the customer number and password previously setup. Some financial institutions have set up additional security steps for access to online banking, but there is no consistency to the approach adopted. .....
Secret Message and Secret Picture
29. Personal message and personal picture is applied as a security measure. This way, after the customer types the username and password, and before entering PIN , can check if the picture and the message that comes out actually belongs to him or her and make sure that she or he is connected to TEB E Banking and not elsewhere. .....
Day and Time Settings
30. You can determine the days when you wish to use TEB E Banking and prevent access on any other day or time. The precursor for the modern home online banking services were the distance banking services over electronic media from the early 1980s. The term online became popular in the late 80s and referred to the use of a terminal, keyboard and TV (or monitor) to access the banking system using a phone line. Home banking can also refer to the use of a numeric keypad to send tones down a phone line with instructions to the bank. .....
Instant Notification
31. You can define transfer limit and for all transfers that you will do with amount equal or more than defined limit, system will automatically send a SMS or Email. State Bank of India (SBI) is an Indian multinational banking and financial services company. It is a government owned corporation with its headquarters in Mumbai, Maharashtra. As of December 2013, it had assets of US$388 billion and 17,000 branches, including 190 foreign offices, making it the largest banking and financial services company in India by assets. .....
IP Settings
32. You can define the IP address from where you wish to access the TEB E Banking and prevent all access from a different IP address. The bank traces its ancestry to British India, through the Imperial Bank of India, to the founding, in 1806, of the Bank of Calcutta, making it the oldest commercial bank in the Indian Subcontinent. Bank of Madras merged into the other two presidency banks in British India, Bank of Calcutta and Bank of Bombay, to form the Imperial Bank of India, which in turn became the State Bank of India. Government of India owned the Imperial Bank of India in 1955, with Reserve Bank of India (Indias Central Bank) taking a 60% stake, and renamed it the State Bank of India. In 2008, the government took over the stake held by the Reserve Bank of India. .....
Transaction Limits
33. You can define limits for daily transactions and for single transactions. Mobile banking is a system that allows customers of a financial institution to conduct a number of financial transactions through a mobile device such as a mobile phone or tablet. .....
Beneficiary Account Limitation
34. You can define accounts to which you can make money transfers, thereby preventing any money transfer to accounts not included in the list. Mobile banking differs from mobile payments, which involve the use of a mobile device to pay for goods or services either at the point of sale or remotely,[1] analogously to the use of a debit or credit card to effect an EFTPOS payment. .....

Security of financial transactions, being executed from some remote location and transmission of financial information over the air, are the most complicated challenges that need to be addressed jointly by mobile application developers, wireless network service providers and the banks IT departments. .....
Avoid using Beta browsers
39. Avoid using Beta browsers. Beta browsers are browsers still in the process of testing and may contain security vulnerabilities. We suggest the use of the browsers final release versions. One time password (OTPs) are the latest tool used by financial and banking service providers in the fight against cyber fraud. Instead of relying on traditional memorized passwords, OTPs are requested by consumers each time they want to perform transactions using the online or mobile banking interface. When the request is received the password is sent to the consumer s phone via SMS. The password is expired once it has been used or once its scheduled life cycle has expired. .....
Beware of questionable emails
40. Crooks may also send you emails asking for your personal information such as a password or pin. As we noted earlier, as time goes by, they get smarter and smarter. They have designed fake bank logos and use them when sending you an email, you may be easily lured to give personal information. You can detect fake emails from these crooks because their emails usually direct you to questionable internet sites. In addition, you will notice that they do not address you as you are used to being called by your bank. The emails may also contain poor grammar. .....
Inform your web bank immediately
41. If you discover you did submit private detail to these con artists, inform your web bank immediately: Make sure you give your bank your current contact information so that they can get in touch with you with any questions or any other mattersthat require your attention. .....
Encryption
42. Encryptionis the process of scrambling private information to prevent unauthorized access. To remind you that your transmission is encrypted, most Internet browsers display a small icon on your screen that looks like a lock or a key, when you conduct secure transactions online. Avoid sending sensitive information, such as account numbers, through unsecured e mail. .....
General security
43. General securityover your personal computer such as virus protection and physical access controls should be used and updated regularly. Contact your hardware and software suppliers, or Internet service provider, toensure you have the latest in security updates. .....
Never leave your computer
44. Never leave your computer unattended once you have signed in to online banking. Mobile banking is used in many parts of the world with little or no infrastructure, especially remote and rural areas. This aspect of mobile commerce is also popular in countries where most of their population is unbanked. In most of these places, banks can only be found in big cities, and customers have to travel hundreds of miles to the nearest bank. .....
Card number safe
45. Keep your password and card number safe. This seems like a no brainer, but surprisingly many users do forget this critical step in the process. Security of a customers financial information is very important, without which online banking could not operate. Financial institutions have set up various security processes to reduce the risk of unauthorized online access to a customers records, but there is no consistency to the various approaches adopted. .....
Do not share disclose or provide your bank card number
46. Do not share, disclose, or provide your bank card number, or password, to another party or website other than your bank. Most banks will not send you an email requesting this information. If your bank practices this very unsafe routine; you should change banks. .....
Don t use lazy passwords
47. Choosing password or 1234 is like putting a luggage lock on the front door of your house. Also, people will be able to guess it and hack. Instead, come up with a longer password that contains both letters and numbers/characters. .....
When signing up for installing agreeing to anything read the fine print
48. If you do not want to receive junk mail or get put on a telemarketer list, look for a small box near the bottom of the page that asks if you want to receive information and offers from other companies. The best sites will have a statement listed that they will not sell your name to other companies (though they may still spam you themselves). Some sites require you to give all your information to get the product. Only fill in required fields that are marked with an *. If the info box does not have an asterisk, it is optional and you can leave it blank. .....
Do not give out your full name address or phone number
49. This especially important in chatrooms or when negotiating jobs or deals through meet up sites. Beware of stock letters (i.e. very general response letters that don t actually address any of the points you ve made), anyone who wants to negotiate a wire transfer, or anyone who wants to work out a business arrangement while they re .....
Keep your eyes peeled for online scams
50. Beware of spoof email claiming to be from eBay, PayPal, or a bank or a company you trust asking for personal or sensitive information. This is called phishing. The e mail may inform you that there is a problem with your account/password. There may be a link to click inside. Forward any of these e mails to the company it claims to be sent from. They will confirm whether the e mail you received was real or not. Also, bear in mind that e mail programs like Yahoo!, MSN, Hotmail and Gmail will never ask you for your e mail password. Dont fall for it. Read How to Protect Yourself from Phishing Scams for more information. .....
Make sure to turn off file sharing and network discovery
51. These both put your files and system at risk for being opened by anyone on the wireless network, not just hackers. In Windows, these options can be found under Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center. In Mac OS X, they are under System Preferences > Sharing. If you are within range of public wireless networks but don t need to be online, turn off your wireless capabilities altogether. On some devices, there is simply an on/off switch; on others, you will need to configure this yourself (ex. on a Mac, click the Wi Fi icon and turn off AirPort). .....
Always check for secure transaction info
52. The best companies will have many security devices in place. You may see a gold lock at the bottom of the page to indicate a secure site. When giving any bank details or other information, make sure the connection is secure and the site is trustworthy. .....
Only download files or software from sites that have been rated
53. Choose downloading resources that are up front about price and ratings and vet their downloads (ex. download.cnet.com). When in doubt, google the name of the site or download along with the word .....
If your computer was hacked through the internet
54. If your computer was hacked through the internet then all your information may have been compromised. Update your virus protection software and remove the virus. If important documents and information has been stolen or compromised, inform your bank or job accordingly. Report any crime to the police. .....
Never access the e banking using a link
55. Never access the e banking using a link that has been provided to you in an e mail. The Bank will never provide you the e banking link in an e mail nor will it allow or request you to open an e banking account online. The PIN/TAN system where the PIN represents a password, used for the login and TANs representing one time passwords to authenticate transactions. TANs can be distributed in different ways, the most popular one is to send a list of TANs to the online banking user by postal letter. Another way of using TANs is to generate them by need using a security token. These token generated TANs depend on the time and a unique secret, stored in the security token (two factor authentication or 2FA). .....
Never provide your identification data
56. Also never provide your identification data contract number, password or mobile code per e mail to anyone. The Bank will never request you to do so. More advanced TAN generators (chipTAN) also include the transaction data into the TAN generation process after displaying it on their own screen to allow the user to discover man in the middle attacks carried out by trojans trying to secretly manipulate the transaction data in the background of the PC. .....
Read key information about the bank posted on its Web site
57. Most bank Web sites have an About Us section or something similar that describes the institution. You may find a brief history of the bank, the official name and address of the banks headquarters, and information about its insurance coverage from the FDIC. .....
Protect yourself from fraudulent Web sites
58. For example, watch out for copycat Web sites that deliberately use a name or Web address very similar to, but not the same as, that of a real financial institution. The intent is to lure you into clicking onto their Web site and giving your personal information, such as your account number and password. Always check to see that you have typed the correct Web site address for your bank before conducting a transaction. .....
Verify the banks insurance status
59. To verify a banks insurance status, look for the familiar FDIC logo or the words Member FDIC or FDIC Insured on the Web site. Also, you should check the FDICs online database of FDIC insured institutions. You can search for an institution by going to Bank Find (formerly Is My Bank Insured?). Search by name, city, state or zip code of the bank, and click the Find button. A positive match will display the official name of the bank, the date it became insured, its insurance certificate number, the main office location for the bank (and branches), its primary government regulator, and other links to detailed information about the bank.
