For your convenience, we have summarized the major tips and measures for secure browsing:
- Enter the Bank’s website address and avoid entering the website via links or through emails that were received from an unknown or unreliable sources (to avoid Phishing). Before using the link to the entry page of the account, which appears in the email/text notifications sent by Leumi, please check that the personal identification word chosen by you appears in the subject field or in the body of the notification.
- If you received an email that looks suspicious, do not click the links which appear inside of it. A copy of the notification should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ensure that at the beginning of the address the letters https appear which specify encrypted communication.
- Choosing a random password which is difficult to guess.
- The personal password should not be given to anyone, even if they identify themselves as Bank Leumi or are associated with it.
- Do not keep your identification information in a place which is accessible to others, or on the computer, because of the concern that they may be revealed by Trojan horses or file sharing programs, which allow access to files on the computer.
- Do not send via email your identification details to enter your personal account, including the your credit card number.
- When accessing the system, the date and time of your last access to the system will appear. In this way it is possible to ensure that the information that appears is indeed correct, and that no entry was made into your account without your knowledge.
- While browsing the system, prevent physical access of other persons to the station from which you are brosing.
- Upon ending the session, disconnect from the system using the logoff function, and if using a public computer, closing the browser is also recommended.
- Avoid browsing on computers where the degree of security is unknown.
- Regularly and systematically check your accounts on the Internet.
General Methods of Caution that should be Taken When Using a PC:
