Online banking security for free!

Posted on: July 1, 2010

While there is no magic solution to protect your financial information when banking online, there is a service offered for free called Trusteer Rapport. Mainly provided for US and UK banks to supply to their own customers as an added service, its protection works on other bank sites as well.

Windows users can download it here and Mac users can download it here or you can visit the official page at

Once installed, you get a new button next to your browsers address bar which you click when using your own bank site and it helps give another layer of security to your session.

It starts out with a list of 50-60 ‘partner’ banking sites and is limited to 100 sites in total, but that means that most of your own favourite sites can also added.

Do remember that you need to combine software this with many other security steps in our security guides to be even remotely confident in your computer’s security and secure use.
