Safe use of the identification code

You want to be able to do your banking in complete safety, not just on your computer but also when using your smart phone or tablet. You can choose how you want to log in: with your debit card and e.dentifier (card reader) or with a personally selected identification code. If you use the Mobile Banking app, you can now also log in to the app using your fingerprint and manage the same banking affairs that you would normally manage using your identification code. Because paying with your identification code has to be as secure as possible there are some things you cannot do with your identification code that you can do when using your debit card and e.dentifier. If you use the Mobile Banking app, you can also log in to the app using your fingerprint and manage the same banking affairs that you would normally manage using your identification code.


Using your identification code

The same security measures that apply to the PIN number of your debit card apply to the identification code as well, in other words: don't tell anyone what your identification code is, and don't write it down anywhere. Remember to choose an obscure identification code as well. This means not using a code based on your date of birth, postcode, house number or telephone number. And needless to say, make sure no one is looking over your shoulder when you are entering the code!

We would recommend that you do not use 'open' wireless networks, like those in a cafe or shop. You can't be sure that the wireless Internet connection (Wi-Fi) is completely secure.

Downloading via official websites

Do you download software to your computer or mobile device, like games or a new video player? Always make sure to use official websites; you are more likely to keep out viruses that way.
