Online banking is being able to access your bank account safely on the internet, letting you view your account and do a variety of tasks to help you manage your money.

How to set up Online Banking

To get started you may have to visit your bank’s website, make a phone call or pop into a branch to register for internet access.

The registration process is fairly quick, but for safety reasons, it will involve a few steps such as, having a username or passcode posted to you (usually separately) or even receiving a small security device posted to you for logging in. These steps will vary depending on which bank you are with.

Is it safe?

Online banking is safe as long as you follow a few simple steps:

• Don’t give out your passwords or login details to anyone.
• Make sure you chose a strong password that you can remember
