In every transaction executed, the data exchanged are encrypted using TLS encryption.
Personal security codes
In order to use the service, you are required to enter your personal security codes (User ID, Password), which must be known only to you. You can also define an alternative User ID (alias) and we suggest that you change your password regularly.
For security reasons, your subscription is automatically "locked" after five consecutive unsuccessful attempts to log in.
An additional level of security for your transactions
- myAlpha Code for your electronic transactions
For additional security in high-risk transactions (e.g. transfers to third parties), the use of myAlpha Code regarding codes sent via SMS or Viber to the user's mobile phone, is required. More information about the options, the cost and the subscription to this service, is available on the Service page.
The use of the myAlpha Code combined with the User ID and Password provides stronger subscriber authentication and protection. The code generated each time is unique, is being created based on the transaction the user has chosen to carry out and can be used once, exclusively for the specific transaction.
