You should look for that
Pay attention to online banking

The number of participants in online banking is growing and enjoying growing enthusiasm.

In the year 2018, 50% of Germans now have online access to their checking account. Nevertheless, on closer examination, the proportion has grown by only about 5% in the past 5 years.

The reasons for this are among others, often the recurring reports of security vulnerabilities, or stolen records. Of course, this does not necessarily create trust among customers.

Unfortunately, it is also partly the case that the users themselves, through ignorance or negligence, give their data into the hands of fraudsters, or at least make it easy for them.

In our article we would like to point out the most important points from our point of view, so that you can do your money conveniently and, above all, safely from home.

This is particularly secured by the attached anti-virus software to a high degree, and is absolutely recommendable from personal experience.

3. Password security for online banking

3. Password security for online banking

Of course, all technical safety measures are useless if it fails the easiest. Namely the secure password.

Here we recommend that you think up a whole sentence that you may associate with personal events. And you should then change this as far as the e.g. every 2nd letter is capitalized, or the letter E is replaced by a 3.

Between the words you could still use special characters like / or%.

Basically, the more complex a password is, the better.

If you do not want to think of anything, you can also create an online passwort generator But it is better that you think your own.
