ANZ adds security feature to internet banking

ANZ Bank has added a new security feature to its internet banking platform to reduce the risk of fraud against customers in PNG.

ANZ PNG CEO Mark Baker says the move is to ensure alignment to ANZ’s global security standards.

The ‘Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)’ feature adds additional layers of security before a customer can access their internet banking account.

“We’re committed to continually improving our products and services to ensure they align with ANZ’s global security standards,” states Baker.

“This security feature will further protect our customers who use internet banking in an environment where cybercrime continues to grow.

“This is a great enhancement to our digital offering however, we still urge our customers to be diligent with their personal information. Please keep PINs and other banking details completely confidential, and don’t forget to change them regularly,” Baker said.

ANZ PNG customers using internet banking are encouraged to activate 2FA by contacting the ANZ PNG Call Centre on (+675) 321 1079.

New customers will have 2FA automatically activated when they register for an internet banking account.
