Security is our top priority. We have equipped our Internet Banking Service with industry standard security technology and practices to ensure that our customers are fully protected against third party fraud.
You are uniquely identified by your Internet Banking ID and password every time you bank online.
Your financial information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption, the most secure form available commercially.
If you forget to log off after banking online, we activate an automatic 'time-out' after a period of inactivity to prevent unauthorised access.
The pages you have viewed during your banking session expire to prevent the pages from being stored in your browser, ensuring that no one can access these pages and your financial information.
We also track the number of logon attempts. Should we find three consecutive incorrect passwords have been attempted, we will immediately disable online access and customers will need to contact us again to re-establish the access.
We need your active participation in online security. You have an important role to play, in ensuring that you are careful with your Internet Banking ID and password, that your computer and software are protected and you are careful while online.
Keep your Internet Banking ID and password secret at all times. These are your keys to access Internet Banking from HSBC. Only the right combination of these allows you access.
Use a combination of numbers, upper and lower case letters, eg. ha6N3Rw2.
Avoid using the same details that you use to access other online services such as email or electronic chat.
Avoid obvious terms that others might guess, like names, birthdays or telephone numbers.
Change your password regularly. If you want to change your Internet Banking password to make it less obvious you can do so online at your own convenience.
Do not reveal your Internet Banking password to anyone or write it down.
You should be the only one who knows your Internet Banking password. Never give it to anyone. No one at HSBC will ever ask you to tell them your Internet Banking password, ensuring it remains private and confidential to you. Know everyone who uses your computer and limit unauthorised access.
Protect your computer
Your computer and software may be vulnerable to viruses and hackers.
Install a personal firewall on your computer.
Personal firewall software is designed to prevent hackers from accessing the computer it is installed on. Installing a personal firewall is recommended especially if you are using a broadband connection. When installing such software, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for a 'conservative' access control.
Install and regularly update virus detection software
Virus detection software scans your computer and your incoming emails for viruses and then deletes them. You can download anti-virus software from the websites of software companies or buy it in retail stores. To be effective, anti-virus software must be updated routinely. As a matter of precaution avoid opening any emails with attachments that you are not expecting, even if they are from known people.
Download and apply security updates and patches to the PC/browser when they are made available
Always download updates to ensure you have the latest protection
Protect yourself when you use the Internet and bank online
Do not access Internet Banking from public places or from shared computers such as those in cyber cafes. You never know what malicious programs might be installed on the PC you use there.
Always exit using the 'Logoff' button to ensure you end each Internet Banking session securely.
When you've finished using the Internet, always disconnect. Avoid leaving your connection on, especially with broadband access, unless you're actively using it.
Always check the date and time of your last visit to the Internet Banking page on the HSBC website (we track it at all times and display it on the Welcome Page). If you suspect anything unusual, please contact us on Internet Banking Customer Service Helpdesk at (021) 111-4722-11 (within Pakistan) or (+92 21) 111-4722-11 (outside Pakistan).
Do not leave an Internet Banking session unattended at any time.
When you log on to a Internet Banking session, ensure that no browser windows with access to other websites are open. This will protect your computer from the possible harm by being exposed to other websites while you are doing banking transactions and can help to ensure your financial information is protected and blocked from unauthorised access via another website.
