Our systems continuously contribute to improving security and reducing fraud on the Internet and trading platforms. Securing online payments is a shared responsibility and everyone can contribute their share. On this page you will find an overview of how you can also contribute to a secure Internet environment and online payments. 

Only use 'safe' websites 
If you enter personal information, a password or make a payment on a website, make sure that the communication with that website is secure. You can recognize this by the prefix https:// starting the domain name (for example: ) and some browsers will show a lock in the bar where the web address (url) is shown. 

Latest version of your operating system, browser and applications
New vulnerabilities are regularly found in the software you use. Developer of software release updates to patch these (security) vulnerabilities. Make sure that your operating system, browser and applications (such as Apps) are always updated to the latest version.

Virus scanner and firewall

Install a virus scanner and a firewall to prevent abuse of your computer or device. Make sure it is always up to date.

Use secure passwords that are at least 12 characters long and contain a combination of upper case, lower case, numbers, and characters. Do not use obvious names or words. Use different passwords for each site or application and save them in a password manager and not in a separate text file on your computer/device. Change your passwords regularly (at least once a year) and especially if you suspect that someone else has had access to your computer / device or application.
