How to stay safe against common scams


Follow the under listed points in order to stay safe from Bank Fraud

  •  Ignore any SMS or email notification that asks you to follow a link and provide your username and password.
  • Do not store any banking credentials on your smartphone.
  • Do not let your browser (Safari, Chrome and others) save your banking passwords.
  • Ensure that your banking credentials are unique and not used to log-in to any other websites, email accounts or apps.
  • When selling your phone, ensure all your details are removed, the Absa Banking App is uninstalled and delinked from your banking profile, and the phone is reset to factory settings.
  • Never leave your smartphone unattended when you are logged in.
  • Use two-factor authentication whenever possible to increase the security of your login.
  • Do not jailbreak (your iPhone), use pirated software or compromise the security of the software on your device as this could easily lead to attackers spying on you without your knowledge.
