Security - HTTP/HTTPS

Your password equals written signature in the online bank. For that reason it is important to keep the password from outsiders. The password stops other people from logging on to your account. You are responsible for all transactions made through your account. If there is any doubt that outsiders might know your password you should change it immediately. The password can be changed by going to Settings > Password in the online bank.
Also, your password should be renewed on a regular basis for security reasons. The password should be at least eight letters and include at least two numbers. Symbols and Icelandic letters are not allowed.
If the password is lost you can get a new one in your nearest Íslandsbanki branch. You should change the password the first time you log on to the online bank. Please note that a password is never given through e-mail or phone.
Íslandsbanki's online bank is compatible with the newest versions of all major browsers. It is strongly recommended that you upgrade to the most recent version to minimize possible security hazards.
