Dear Customer,

As part of our security measures to protect your online banking account, Abbey has introduced a recent internet banking security upgrade.

This compulsory upgrade requires you to authorize access to your Abbey online account on a fixed computer, marked by your IP address. This establishes a secure connection to your online account.

This upgrade ensures that only access from the computer registered to our security system are authorized.

Any access from a different computer will display a simple security tip from your personal records.

Any incorrect detail entered immediatialy triggers a security alert and restrict further access to your online banking details, preventing fraudulent activities.

This is one of our varying methods of checking online fraud by preventing a third party (unauthorized) access to your online banking information.

This is a compulsory upgrade, all Abbey customers are advised to adhere to this important security feature.
