How to Use Safe Banking :-


The Safe Banking feature of Quick Heal v16.00 ensures that your financial transactions on the Internet are safe from hackers and malware. Scroll down to know more about this security feature.

While the Internet has made it convenient for us to shop, bank, and pay our bills online, it has also made us vulnerable to common threats such as:

Phishing Attacks – attempts by hackers to steal our personal and financial data such as login id passwords, credit/debit card details, net banking information, etc.

Identity Theft – attempts to steal our identity online and using our personal information to indulge in malicious and illegal activities.

Key Loggers – malicious programs designed to record what we type on our keyboard and use the recorded data for illegal activities.

Quick Heal Safe Banking has been designed taking all such threats into account. This security feature automatically takes all necessary steps required for secure online banking, shopping and other financial transactions on the Internet.
