We take the online security of your money very seriously. That’s why we use the latest systems and technology to ensure your savings are safe with us.
We combine 128-bit encryption and sophisticated firewalls with 2-tier authentication to offer the highest online protection for your money and information. This enhanced security system might seem like a hassle at first, but it’s really simple to set up and use!
Simple login (tier 1 authentication)
Tier 1 allows you to access simple services like account balances and transaction history. It’s what you’re probably already used to – logging in with your member number and password.
Secure SMS and Security Token (tier 2 authentication)
Tier 2 is needed to protect your money when it moves. It makes sure it’s really you making the transfer or bill payment! For this, you need to add an extra passcode, generated with either Secure SMS or a VIP Security Token.
With secure SMS, a secure code is sent to your mobile phone or a voice message call is made to your home or business landline phone.
VIP security tokens
For those members that can’t register for Secure SMS, Beyond Bank can provide VIP Security, in the form of either:
- Mobile phone VIP Access - this relies on your mobile phone having web access, or you can use an app on your smart phone, to create a secure passcode using an online application (once downloaded it no longer requires access to the internet), or
- A Hardware Security Token – a small, lightweight device that generates a unique 6-digit passcode every 30 seconds.
Once you’ve entered your Secure SMS or VIP Security Token passcode, you will have full access to all areas of Internet Banking, including our Secure Messaging service. And you only need to enter it once during each Internet Banking session.
