Security Statement

Dear MBNA Net Access Customers,

Your Security Online

One of our highest priorities on Net Access is to ensure your personal information is secure by employing some of the most advanced online security measures in the industry.

Once you enrol in Net Access, you will be able to use a self-selected username and password system that serves as our first line of security.

Then every step of the way, we will provide you with state-of-the-art encryption of all data transmitted between your computer and our secure site. Most browsers utilise an encryption method called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is software-based security protocol that encodes data before it is transmitted over the Internet.

Many browsers offer both 40-bit and 128-bit versions of SSL. 128-bit encryption provides a much higher level of security, as it is more than 300 x 1024 times more secure than 40-bit encryption. Major commercial browsers, including Microsoft?Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher and Netscape?Navigator 4.75 or higher, include this encryption software. Net Access requires the higher level (128-bit SSL) of encryption to ensure the privacy of your information.

An icon, such as a padlock or key, will be displayed in the corner of your browser's window to let you know that your browser's encryption is active.

Another security feature of Net Access is the use of secure electronic forms (e-forms). You can use these forms to request additional services or changes to your account. Unlike e-mail, e-forms are encrypted with SSL to protect your information.

You can also ensure the security of your information by following these steps:

  • Never reveal your user name and password to anyone.

  • Change your password frequently using the Change Password function.

  • Always log off Net Access before walking away from your computer.

  • Always log off Net Access before accessing other Web sites.

Due to concerns, for the safety and integrity of the MBNA Net Access account we have issued this warning message.

It has come to our attention that your MBNA Net Access account information needs to be updated as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website. If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and update your personal records you will not run into any future problems with the online service.

Once you have updated your account records your MBNA Net Access account service will not be interrupted and will continue as normal.
