A Word About Security
Fraudulent phone calls and emails are becoming more common, so please be vigilant and you can protect yourself from identity theft.
Remember: Never respond to an email or phone call that asks you to release sensitive information such as passwords, account numbers, social security numbers or pin numbers, even if the sender threatens to suspend your account if you don’t reply. Standard Bank will never ask you to disclose this type of information over the internet or telephone.
Access ID and Password
We strongly suggest that your password for Online Banking be unique – do not reuse your “favorite” password. Do not share your password with anyone, and make sure to Log Out when you’re done banking.
