Here are 6 tips for mobile banking security based on Mastercard official information that I quoted on Thursday (8/24/2017). 
  • Do not Use Public Wi-Fi Connection.
    The first rule of using secure mobile banking is to never use a common Wi-Fi connection when accessing banking applications. This is because the Wi-Fi connection in public places is not guaranteed security. In fact, can make the data in it vulnerable hacked by hackers.
  • Check the Website of Card Issuer
    This is actually not necessary, but for security can also be done to make users more confident that banking information and money in his account safe.

    In addition, it is also helpful to know who can be contacted when the customer feels there is suspicious activity on his personal account.

    Most banks have offered a variety of authentication services and devices. One of them is One-Time-Passwords that serves to perform authentication and verify the transaction process performed.

    With this service, mobile banking users can be better protected and transactions can be more secure. 
  • Always Update Mobile Banking App
    Updating the mobile banking app installed on your smartphone needs to be done to ensure that it has the latest security services.

    By regularly updating mobile banking applications, customers can enjoy the benefits and various features (such as enhanced security) offered in the latest version of the app as well as increased security. 
  • Do not Do a Jailbreak on Smartphones
    Doing a jailbreak to your smartphone allows third-party apps to access the operating system from your device. In fact, this has the potential to make other parties know all the information stored on the device.
