Bank with Ease
Apart from the security measures put in place by the Bank, you play an equally important role to ensure your online security and account information is not compromised.
Keep your Username, Password and One Time Password (OTP) confidential at all times
|Your Username, Password and OTP are like the key to your online safe. We identify you using your Username and Password. As such, protecting your online identity is very important and you need to safeguard your Password at all times. In addition, your Username and ATM/Cashline/Credit Card Number should not be placed together.|
Important Tips on how you can safeguard and protect your Password:
Note : No staff of DBS Bank should ever ask you for your Password under any circumstances.
Always log off your online session
Log off your online session whenever you leave your computer, even for a short while. This immediately ends your DBS iBanking session and prevents further transactions from being carried out without a fresh login. You should also shut down your computer, when not in use, to prevent unauthorised access to your computer.Tip: You can set a Password for your screen saver to prevent unauthorised access to your computer when you need to leave for a while. To do so, simply:
Do not store your Username/Password when using Internet browser
|Some browsers store and list possible matches from entries that you have typed previously. You can prevent any Username/ Password from being stored in your browsers by de-activating the function.|
Do not disclose your personal information to suspected websites
|To prevent your personal information from being captured by bogus websites, you should not disclose your personal, financial or credit card information to little-known or suspected websites.|
Do not leave your mobile phone unattended
|Your mobile phone is the only device receiving the One Time Password (OTP) for you to log on to DBS iBanking and to conduct high-risk transactions online. In order to enjoy DBS iBanking with peace of mind, you should never leave your mobile phone unattended to prevent it from loss or thefts.|
Ensure adequate security level for wireless network and devices
|Poorly configured wireless equipment may allow malicious entry into your computer directly through the air waves. If you are using a wireless network/device, you are strongly advised to read your instruction manual, or consult your vendors if necessary, to configure your wireless network/device to ensure that adequate security levels are established.|
Clear your browser's cache and history after each session
|Temporary files stored in your computer called cache files and history can retain information and data. Always remember to clear your browser's cache and history after each session so that your account information is removed, especially if you are using a shared computer.|
Protect your computer from viruses and malicious programs
Apart from destroying important data on your computer, viruses/malicious programs such as Trojan Horse may run a Password sniffing program in the background to capture your Password keystrokes without your knowledge.To avoid getting infected, you should:
Protect your critical data
|Make regular backup of your critical data and ensure that these data in your computer is adequately protected or encrypted.|
Disable the "File and Printer Sharing" feature on your Operating System
|This prevents an external party from gaining illegal control or access to your computer. You can refer to your computer vendor or instruction manual on how this is done.|
Check your SMS notification, account and transaction history details on a timely basis
|Check your SMS notification, transaction history details and statements on a timely basis to make sure that all details are updated and there are no unauthorised transactions on your accounts. Also take note of your 'last logon date and time' whenever you log on to DBS iBanking to make sure that there has not been any unauthorised access.|
Update us when you change your contact particulars
|To make it easier for us to reach you whenever we detect unusual transactions in your account, always keep us updated with your latest contact numbers and mailing address.|

Due to its promise of ease of use and mobility, wireless networks are fast gaining popularity. But are you aware that wireless networks, if not configured securely, could be used by others who can easily connect to your wireless connections via default settings? This could potentially allow anyone to tap into your wireless connection to surf the Internet or download files on your account.
Customers are advised not to leave their bank cards unattended in public areas, including lockers in changing rooms. Fraudsters have stolen/ copied bank cards from public lockers then impersonated bank staff to obtain the cardholders' ATM Personal Identity Number ("PASSWORD"), or the Telephone Identity Number ("TIN") for phone banking services. Please note that DBS staff will not ask customers for their PASSWORDs or TINs - for any purpose. Please call our customer hotline if in doubt.
