Protection adds another layer of security when banking online and/or carrying
out online money transactions.
When using Banking Protection,
every website you enter is checked by querying our Security Cloud. By carrying
out this check, Banking Protection gets the information whether the site is
listed as one of our trusted banking sites or not. If it is, a notification is
shown indicating that you are entering an online banking site secured with
https, and that Banking Protection deems the site safe for you to use.
When you start your next online
banking session, Banking Protection automatically gets activated again.
Note: On the PC, Banking
Protection offers an elevated level of security. Once you have started an
online banking session and Banking Protection mode has been activated, Banking
Protection disconnects all untrusted applications from the Internet and
prevents them from reconnecting while on a trusted banking site. Blocking
connections prevents hijacking of your banking sessions keeping your money
safe. You can also only access websites that are considered safe during a
banking session, otherwise they get blocked.
Note: To benefit from the
Banking Protection feature on Android devices, SAFE browser needs to be in use.
