Security

 

  • Is it safe to use Online Banking?

    Online banking is a safe and convenient way to manage your money. We use industry standard levels of security to protect you. To ensure no one else can access your account, remember to click log out each time you finish using Online banking, use a protected computer, and follow the precautions within our Online Security section.

  • What is the One-Time-Pin (OTP)?

    Your online security is our priority so we have developed the OTP, a new security feature that helps us to identify that it is really you making the transactions. OTP is a unique code that will be sent to your mobile phone via SMS whenever you use certain features on Online banking. You will be prompted to enter the Secure Code on the screen before being able to proceed.

    The activities that will generate a Secure Code are:

    • Registering for NBC Online banking
    • Addition of Payees (beneficiaries) to your Payees list
    • One-off transactions to unlisted Payees
  • I am not getting the OTP. What should I do?

    Please check the last 4 digits of your mobile number shown on the OTP entry page. If these digits do not correspond to the last 4 digits of your mobile phone number, then we have a different mobile number recorded for you on our system.

    Please call at any of our branches to update your mobile phone number. If the mobile phone number is correct and you do not receive the OTP within three minutes, you can generate another OTP by clicking on ‘Request to generate another OTP’ on screen.

    If the SMS still does not reach you, please call our Contact Centre on +255 76 898 4000 or +255 22 219 3000 or +255 22 551 1000, for technical support.

  • What is a Virtual Keyboard and how does it protect me?

    The use of Virtual Keyboard is one of the new security features introduced to NBC Online Banking. With a Virtual Keyboard, you can enter your password on screen with the help of your mouse rather than your physical keyboard.

    Virtual keyboards are designed to reduce the risk of programs that download themselves to your computer and create keystroke logs that can be used to gain access to your accounts. Keeping your convenience in mind, with NBC Online Banking, you can opt to enter your password using the Virtual Keyboard or switch it off.

    From a security perspective, we recommend that you always use Virtual Keyboard when logging in. Virtual keyboards are an important component in securing your Online banking experience, however, they do not prevent malicious programs from being downloaded to the computer, so you should always have an up to date virus scanner and firewall on your computer.

  • What if someone else knows my User ID or Password information?

    If you think that someone else knows your Password information, then you need to change it immediately. Your password is the key to your security as the system matches them to our records to check your identity. Changing your password will mean that no one else can access your account, even if they know your user ID. You may want to check your account statement to see if any unauthorized transactions have taken place.

    If you think any unauthorized transactions have taken place, please call our Contact Centre on +255 76 898 4000 or +255 22 219 3000 or +255 22 551 1000 or write to us through the message facility within Online Banking under Customer Service.
