• Security Tips for CIMB Clicks Internet Banking

When accessing Clicks Internet Banking, do verify that the website address begins with "https://", instead of “http://”. If your browser gives you a warning that a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate does not belong to the bank, logout immediately and inform us.

Look for the padlock icon on your browser’s status bar. The icon indicates that the website has been certified by Verisign and the website can be trusted. Always check to ensure that the URL listed in the digital certificate is the bank’s correct URL.
 

Never click on an unknown link in an email or pop-up window to go to a site. Always enter the bank’s correct URL (www.cimbclicks.com.sg).
 

Prevent outsiders from guessing your username or password. Preferably, usernames and passwords should be:

  •          At least 6 characters long, with a mix of alphanumeric.
  •          Not easily identified with you eg. your birth date, name, phone number, etc.
  •          Memorized, changed regularly and never shared. 
  •          Unique to different websites, applications or services.
     
 
  •          Do not disclose your login ID, password, Activation Code, ATM PIN or credit card information to anyone including bank employees.
  •          Do not write them down nor store them in any device.
  •          Never disclose your One-Time-Password (OTP) to anyone.
  •          Make sure no one sees your input when you use them.

     

Do not select the browser option for storing or retaining user name and password. 
 

Never leave your computer connected to the internet and unattended in public for long periods of time. 
 

Always log off and clear your computer’s cache after each banking session.
