Two Factor Authentication

The Secure Key is a two-factor authentication device that will help protect you from online banking fraud. Devices like these are commonly being used for secure transactions all round the world. With this technology you can enjoy far more secure online banking services.

Two-factor authentication means you not only need a password or PIN, but you also need a device unique to you, like the Secure Key.
