More ways to stay money safe
- Set up fingerprint or facial recognition on your phone and banking apps (if your phone can do this). This helps us make sure any payments are being made by you and not a fraudster.
- Look for the 's' in the URL when shopping and paying online. It means the website uses a secure connection and will keep your personal information safe. The URL you are visiting should begin with https://.
- Switch on mobile app notifications to stay up to date with your account activity. If you notice any payments you do not think you’ve made, please get in touch with us and we'll help.
