Bank details viewed on unsecured network

We have inadvertantly checked our bank details on an unsecured network, what are the chances anyone has picked up on this and what could happen please ?

Almost certainly nothing averse will have happened; if you have any concerns change your banking log-on passwords and rest easy.

How did you manage to do that.All banks have secure networks.
If worried maybe inform your bank in case of any illegal transactions do occur.
Like Diodorus Siculus says change your passwords and keep your fingers crossed.As some banks may not cover you for using an un-secure network or if you do not have proper security on your computer.
So far I have not heard of any banks doing this,but a few have threatened to do it.

Do you mean an unsecured wifi network? don't worry the actual communication to and from the bank will have been encrypted.

It only appears when you start to type on a web page. If you type a letter and look at where it lives on your screen, you will see that what it types appears to be garbage. The site that you are on is the only site that receives the true words as typed.

That's what I took it to mean - I don't know of a bank allowing an unsecure connection.
