Just added my French account on line and, unlike my UK accounts which use the computer keyboard to input the codes, it has a number "block" to input the account code using the mouse, thereby stopping any key loggers from accessing the code. Why don't the UK banks use this system?
Require 3 bits of information to access their online banking, including a mouse entry bit where you have to select the relevent bits from your password via a mouse, as required by the screen. E.g. It will ask for, let's say, the 1st, 3rd and 5th digits of your password - so if your password was PCADVISOR you select P A and V before you can progress.
To me that seems very secure, though it would be more secure if when you made an error it didn't tell you until you'd gone through all 3 checks. At the moment, if you make an error on the first screen it alerts you there, and if you make an error on the second screen it alerts you that the error is there. So a hacker would know which password needed tweaking...
Not quite Dr. They are making it a single race and not 3 races. If 3 then you could have a treble,3 doubles and 3 singles permutations.At the end you would simply be put back into your stalls!Only to do it all over again. For the record I am not a horsey man.
With Barclays it's a 3-horse race and if you fall at the first hurdle then you're back to the starting gate. If you have a succession of 'false starts' then you're disqualified and have to log-out and start again. I'm not horsey either:0)
