Bank safely on your cellphone

Cellphone scams are becoming more common because of the increasing popularity of cellphone banking.  To protect your data and info, every cellphone banking transaction is uniquely encrypted.

It is therefore important to ensure that your cellphone is locked at all times and never left unattended whilst logged into your cellphone banking profile.
