About carrying out secure transactions

Are the transactions I carry out through e-Banking secure?

Yes, as long as the necessary specifications and rules are observed.

We try to ensure the maximum security level possible for your transactions through myAlpha Web and myAlpha Mobile, using cutting-edge technology and systems. Find out how we protect your transactions.

At the same time, it is important that you too play your part in securing your transactions:

I do not feel safe opening an account from my mobile phone. Is it a secure process?

Yes, the process is perfectly secure. Find out how we safeguard your online transactions.

Why do you ask that we change our passwords so often?

To ensure secure navigation and online transactions on your e-Banking, it is necessary to change your password every 3 or 6 months.

To choose how often you will change your password: Log into myAlpha Web or myAlpha Mobile and go to Settings > Security settings > Change Password again in 3 or 6 months.

What is strong customer authentication?

Strong customer authentication is 1 of the methods we use to protect your transactions. Combined with your credentials (Username, Password), it provides increased transaction security..

You can complete a transaction that requires strong authentication using 2 methods:

  1. A Push Notification or a QR Code through the myAlpha Mobile app.
  2. A myAlpha Code sent to your mobile phone (Viber or SMS).

Both methods increase transaction security, as:

  • To confirm a transaction using a Push Notification, you have to use your 4-digit myAlpha Mobile PIN or biometrics (fingerprint or Face ID).
  • Each myAlpha Code is unique, it is created only once based on your chosen transaction and used for this transaction alone.

To further protect you from the threat of online fraud, we apply an additional warning mechanism which requires a 2nd confirmation with Push Notification, myAlpha code or email, so you can complete certain transactions. For example, when you increase your daily transfer limit or when we detect unusual activity on myAlpha Web or myAlpha Mobile.
