How we’re improving your online security

We’re always working to improve your security. From 14 September 2019 you’ll notice that we’ll sometimes ask you for extra security information when you’re banking or buying online.

This is called Strong Customer Authentication External link icon and is being rolled out across all UK banks to boost your protection.

For more information on your rights when making payments in Europe, please see the leaflet issued by the European Commission External link icon 2019.

What we’ll ask you for

We’ll need one thing from two of these categories

Something you know, like your password

Something you have, such as your eSafeID

  • finger print

Something unique to you, your fingerprint or face ID

What's changing

Activating debit and credit cards

Any cardholders will have to activate their new debit or credit card before they can be used (don’t worry - we’ll include instructions with the card).

From 15 October 2021, the individual contactless transaction limit on our debit and credit cards will be £100. This increase will be implemented across all retailers over the coming months.

Activating your eSafeID Device

When you receive a new eSafeID device to use to log onto Business eBanking/District, you’ll need to activate it before you use it for the first time. To complete this, simply visit and follow the steps.

Automatic log off

If you’re inactive for 5 minutes you’ll be logged off online banking, so be careful when manually keying payment details to ensure you don’t lose them. We’ll warn you after 4 minutes of inactivity to remind you to stay logged on.

Transferring money

When approving online transfers you may be asked for your security info more often.

Shopping online

When buying things online, cardholders may be asked to authorise purchases with a six digit code, which we’ll send by text. So please make sure we have your cardholders’ mobile numbers, otherwise they might miss out.
