What are the technical requirements for accessing Internet banking? What do I need to access Internet banking?

You will need an Internet-enabled device such as a personal computer with a suitable operating system, Internet access via a modem and a suitable web browser.

Internet banking does not require special software or access to a private network, but is conducted through the Internet.

If you have a computer with Internet access, a modem and telephone line, an Internet browser and have registered for Internet banking service with your banking institution, then you can conduct Internet banking from virtually anywhere in the world.

More details on these may be found on the banking institutions' Internet banking web pages or by contacting the banking institutions.

It is recommended that you install a personal firewall and regularly update your virus protection software.
