Online banking security
My bank offers an app for online banking which requires either a fingerprint or Face ID as security to login. The anytime banking website needs a password and pin. Since all it would take is the threat of violence for anyone to be willing to log in and transfer money, it seems very risky to me. I don’t use online banking for this reason. If anyone breaks into my house and threatens me, all I can do is get them £500 from an ATM, which is the maximum daily limit. If I was registered for online banking, the scammer could easily force me to transfer thousands, or the entire balance.
Do any banks offer help or refunds in situations like this? Mine just says they will refund if I’ve kept my password and pin safe, which obviously won’t be the case in this situation.
