Customers with facilities for Internet banking (also known as online banking) can use their bank’s or building society’s website to carry out payments and other 1 _______________ over the Internet. This form of banking can be done outside business hours and from anywhere with Internet access. Features of Internet banking include payment of bills, funds transfers between a customer’s own accounts, transfers to a third party’s account, loan 2 _______________ and viewing bank statements.
In addition to the Internet banking 3 _______________ offered by high-street banks, a new generation of banks operate exclusively online. These banks tend to offer high interest rates on savings accounts and low rates on loans because their overheads are much lower than those of traditional banks.
Security has become a key issue in Internet banking. For most secure Internet sites, such as Internet shopping sites, single password 4 _______________ is considered sufficient. In an increasing number of countries, this is no longer considered adequate for Internet banking. In these cases, entry to the site requires the input of one of a selection of passwords and multiple 5 _______________. All information is 6 _______________, making it almost impossible for a third party (i.e. a hacker) to access the information.
However, hackers can gain access to inadequately 7 _______________ home PCs, and can record the password as it is typed in (key logging). Spyware and other malicious programs can record private banking details, and send them to a third party. A more commonplace danger is written passwords and PINs falling into the wrong hands.
Internet banking is perceived by some as being too vulnerable to fraud to consider using. However, the number of 8 _______________ of Internet banking fraud is very small. Statistically, in fact, conventional banking activities carry a higher risk of fraud than Internet banking – simple credit card fraud and various forms of identity theft are far more widespread. It is far easier to obtain banking and other details by going through a bag of rubbish and collecting old bank statements etc. than it is to obtain it by hacking.
Generally speaking, unless users are careless or gullible, Internet banking does not carry a great level of risk. Nevertheless, 9_____________ continue to come up with inventive ways to access accounts. An example is “phishing” – using emails purporting to be from the customer’s bank to persuade people to hand over their 10 _______________.
