Whenever you're visiting our online site, rest assured we’ve got your back.
Encrypted online banking
Your accounts can be accessed over a 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology using a browser that supports 128-bit encryption so that the communication cannot be intercepted by anyone over the internet.
Our online banking system provides you a virtual keyboard on the login page to protect your account details against key-logging programs.
Unsuccessful login attempts
Your access to the account will be disabled after successive invalid password attempts, helping us protect your account from password attack mechanisms.
Our systems automatically time out the customer's login sessions after a period of time to protect against misuse. The account can be accessed again only by providing the login details in the default login page.
