Why are Banks Pushing Protection Software?
I've seen more than one bank pushing for users to adopt a specific software to protect use of its on-line facilities. This is Trusteer Rapport and it is free, so first question is what's the pay-off for them? Is it to help them avoid the effort of providing a secure application?
F-secure provides a similar facility and I see that some in this community have reported errors from clashing with Rapport, so this is not a trouble-free area. I find that on start-up (in Win7) both applications are hammering away, presumably doing pretty much the same thing, while I suffer abominable response times.
What can I tell the banks that will persuade them to stop nagging me to reload it when I remove Rapport?
