Get extra Online Banking security
with Symantec™ Validation & ID Protection (VIP)
At Defence Bank, we are always looking for ways to protect our members from online fraud and to make your online banking experience as secure as possible.
What is VIP Access?
Get additional online banking security with Symantec™ Validation & ID Protection (VIP) Access for Mobile. VIP Access is a free online security App that you can download to your mobile phone or tablet.
How does VIP Access work?
VIP Access helps protect your accounts and your identity by providing a higher level of security when you conduct transactions from within Defence Bank online banking.
VIP Access provides a dynamic security code from your device or a push verification to your device that you use with your existing online banking login and password. VIP Access allows you to use your mobile phone as a security token. It’s simple and easy to use, and operates anywhere in Australia and overseas.
Once set up, you will continue to log into online banking using your current member number and password. Any secondary transaction authentication (TA) password/s that you previously required to complete a banking transaction will be generated on your VIP Access App. In addition to enhanced security, you’ll receive the added convenience of no longer needing to remember your secondary TA password.
Note: Carrier charges may apply for download and activation. A mobile data plan with Internet access is required. Once installed VIP Access will function as a stand alone app that does not require web or phone access to operate.
You can also use VIP Access at VIP member sites such as eBay, PayPal, E*TRADE, or any one of the hundreds of sites within the VIP Network.
