Your login credentials are the key to unlocking your house door. Never disclose your login details to anyone and do not write it down. The best place to keep your user name and password is in your head. Follow these 5 tips to secure your online account:

  1. Use a combination of letters, numbers and caps for your password. This makes it difficult for hackers and others to guess your password.
  2. Memorable names and numbers (or characters combination) help you remember your password. You can be locked out of your account on three unsuccessful login attempts. Getting your account unlocked would mean that you have to visit the nearest BSP branch or give them a call. Therefore, make sure you do not only have a strong password, but also one that you can easily remember.
  3. Use the authentication option. That means that you must set up security questions. For example, what is the name of your best buddy at school? The two-step authentication is a better way to secure your account. You’ll have to log in and answer the question/s before accessing the online banking platform. Use the two-step authentication and safeguard your account.
  4. Clear the cache of your device. After log out go to the setting > history > clear. If you lost your phone or device not will access your account if you clear the password that may have been stored by your device’s auto setting,
  5. Do not access BSP online banking via free wifi. Open source wifi is susceptible to virus and hacking. Even if you have the best security program on your device, it is better to be safe than sorry.
