What is the difference between the password card and the digipass?
Every time when logging in to our bank’s Internet banking system you must enter one of the unvarying passes indicated on the password card. If your password card gets into the hands of a criminal even for an instant, your passes may be copied! Also, there have been cases when card passes were cheated out from password card holders by the Internet criminals.
Maximum security of your account and log-in data is ensured by the digipass, because for every log in time it generates a new one-time pass. Also, the digipass is protected by a PIN code that is known only to the digipass holder.
Log-in passes are the main security measure in e-banking services. They are the keys that provide access to your bank accounts. Therefore, it is highly important that you keep your passes secret and your wallet secure!
How does the digipass function?
Every time when a client logs into the bank’s Internet services system, he or she is issued a new master code. When the master code is entered into the digipass, a unique PIN is generated and you may use it only once for logging into the system.
A speaking digipass
SEB Bank clients with eyesight disability are offered a special acoustic digipass that generates a vocally pronounced pass.
The digipass is issued free of charge to SEB Bank clients with whom an E-service Agreement (PDF, 135 KB)* has been executed and upon producing at a relevant SEB Bank sub-branch a disabled person’s new-standard certificate indicating that its bearer has eyesight disability. New-standard certificates have been issued since 1 August 2005.
Where can I obtain a digipass?
Digipass is available at any sub-branch of SEB Bank. More detailed information is available by phone at 1528.
