Safety of transactions in the electronic environment depends on all involved parties and their cooperation. The Bank provides comprehensive safety of the Internet Bank system MultiNet and communication channels by encrypting data transmission as well as offers to the Client safe authentication by applying a two-factor mechanism - password and, additionally, plastic code card or digital code calculator (DigiPass); yet, the Client needs to take care for safety of his or her passwords and private access devices as well as deliberate activities by verifying the authenticity of the Internet Bank system MultiNet.

 

Recommendations for safe using of the Internet Bank system MultiNet

 

Passwords

 

User name and password are means of the Client's identification in the respective information system. If the Client enters them in the information system correctly, the system is aware of information permitted for access to the user, activities allowed to the Client in the system, and conditions that have to be applied to the user. Disclosing of means of identification to other persons may result in loss of the user identity and material values; therefore, they should be stored in a safe place.

 

In order to provide safety of the password, the following recommendations shall be considered when choosing and using the password:

 

  1. The password has to consist of 8 symbols at least. The longer the password, the safer it is.
  2. Choose upper-case and law-case letters and digits for your password.
  3. Password should contain at least 2 letters and at least 2 digits.
  4. Do not use as the first symbol an upper-case letter in your password and do not use digits at the end; do not use in your password any word available in dictionaries and other significant combination, e.g., data of your birth, license plate number, pet name, etc.
  5. To make the password easier to remember for yourself, use keyboard key combination that is well-known for you; do not choose combination of keys which stand next in the same row.
  6. If you have to write the password down, keep it as safe as your credit card or - which is even better - use some of password administration tools, e.g., KeePass etc. Download them from authentic internet home pages only.
  7. Do not keep the written down user name (in the Internet Bank system MultiNet referred to as the Login), password and code card or code calculator in one place.
  8. Do not use the same password in many internet resources. If the password will get compromised in one of them, villains will have the possibility to use it in other internet resources with your user account as well.
  9. Immediately change your password if:

        1. You had to use your password in unknown and/or unsafe computer;

        2. You are in suspicion that some other person is using the User password.

  1. Do not save the password in an internet browser on computer, in smartphone, tablet, or in a computer joint-use user profile. Assess the computer safety carefully if you want to save the password in your user profile in an internet browser;
  2. Change your password on regular basis because you can never be absolutely sure that nobody has compromised it already. The maximum validity period of a MultiNet online banking password is 180 days. Thereafter, the system will request the password to be obligatory changed. We advise you to change the password more frequently if you use it in non-secure environment, or on someone else’s computer.
