Online Banking Safety Tips
Here are some simple tips that you can follow to ensure that your online banking experience is safe and hassle free.
Keep your passwords, Personal Identification Number (PIN) and card numbers confidential
Do not share your DIAMOND BANK Online Banking password or ATM machine Personal Identification Number (PIN) with anyone. Giving your password or PIN to another person or company places your finances and privacy at risk.
Change your password regularly and use a different password than you use for other websites. Make it difficult for others to guess your password by using a combination of letters and numbers in your password. If you think someone knows your password, change it right away.
Never share, disclose, or provide your card number or password to another party or website other than DIAMOND BANK. DIAMOND BANK will never send you an e-mail requesting this information.
Look for the lock icon
Before entering personal information on a website, look for the "lock" icon in your browser. A closed lock or padlock indicates that the website you are on is secure.
Use a firewall
When your computer is connected to the Internet, it is vulnerable to attack. Although this is a problem for all types of Internet connections, DSL and cable modem connections are more vulnerable because they offer an "always on" capability. You can help protect your computer from attack by using a personal firewall. Personal firewalls can be software, hardware, or both, and create a barrier to attacks.
Microsoft Windows and Apple MacOS X both include automatically activated firewalls. If you are not sure your system has an activated firewall go to the appropriate site below to learn more.

Direct Deposit and DIAMOND BANK Online Banking
You can arrange with your employer to have your salary deposited directly to your DIAMOND BANK account so you can prevent lost or stolen cheques. With DIAMOND Online Banking, you can also set up recurring transfers and payments from your DIAMOND BANK account so that your obligations are met automatically.
Shop with Verified by Visa
Verified by Visa protects your DIAMOND Visa Credit Card with a password. Once you set up your Verified by Visa Pin, you will be prompted for it when you use your DIAMOND Visa Credit Card to make online purchases and payments to merchants.
Install security updates
Most personal computers use the Microsoft Windows and Apple MacOS operating systems. The makers of these systems regularly issue security updates to protect against new and emerging threats. You should download and install security updates regularly or configure your operating system to automatically check for new updates.
