My mobile number has changed. How can I receive SMS OTP?
If you change your mobile number, you need to update your profile with your new number, in order to continue receiving SMS OTP. If you still have access to your old number or if you own an active Alpha Bank debit card, you may replace it via the Profile menu > Personal info > Mobile number modification.
If you don’t own an Alpha Bank debit card or you don’t have access to your old number, you may visit an Alpha Bank Branch to change your mobile phone number.
The security of your transactions depends on you as well
The mobile phone where you receive myAlpha Codes cannot be used by others to carry out transactions, unless they know both your “User ID” and “Password”.
In order to avoid this, you are advised, in the interest of your own security:
- to memorise your Alpha Web Banking security codes and not store them together with your mobile phone or your device; and
- to install antivirus software (Firewall, Antivirus, Antispyware) on your computer.
