Internet banking

You can easily pay accounts and transfer money from your ABSA credit card via internet banking. You can register for online banking online or simply go to your nearest branch and they will set this up within minutes.

And, thanks to ABSA! here are a few thing to keep in mind and pay attention to the warning signs. Keep your money safe, ALWAYS!

Ensuring a safe Internet Banking experience

  • Do not provide your information on any website unless you are sure you’re at the valid Internet Banking site. Always visit and click on ‘Logon to Internet Banking’. This will redirect you to the valid internet banking site.
  • Ensure that the padlock icon is visible on your browser (either at the top, or at the bottom, of the screen); and logon to Internet Banking.
  • Make sure you receive your logon alert via SMS.
  • Ensure that your own personalised security SurePhrase™ message is displayed.

Your SurePhrase™ message will only be displayed if you are on the valid Absa Internet Banking site. No fraudulent site is able to replicate and display this message. You can change your SurePhrase™ message by clicking on the ‘Portfolio’ tab within Internet Banking, and then on ‘Personalise my Service’.

What is phishing?

You may receive emails seeming to be from Absa, requesting you click on an Internet link to confirm or update your Internet Banking login details. These messages are not from Absa, and are fraudulent attempts to gather your sensitive information – like PIN numbers and passwords.

Remember that Absa – or any bank – will never send an email or SMS requesting users confirm or update their sensitive details.
