Well they do have 2 factor auth for large payments if you've set it up. And offer the RSA dongles for business banking

Thinking up a cryptic secure password with their limitations is hard... I'm certainly changing mine!

Not a fan text message 2fa though, also that large sum netcode is pointless as they could just drain your account using small amounts :p

The limit is a daily limit transferred out of your accounts IIRC.  You can drop it to $1 too if you so desire.

JamesL: Either way, it's not acceptable. The billions the rake in profits you'd think they could invest more into security.


It's about risk. Why invest millions if they lose less than that every year?

JamesL: Personally I'd like to see things like banks using OTP tokens like Google Authenticator etc


Yes, instead of gimmicks like BNZ Netguard card, or SMS that won't work depending on which mobile operator you use...

ASB Security is below par.

I had huge issues trying to change my password, even phoning ASB they did not know the problem.

In the end, we found out they only allow 8 characters -- even the CSR support was surprised.

That's why I bank with ANZ. To login to my Internet Banking it requires a code to be sent to my Cell Phone and then the Code to be entered while in conjunction with my internet banking password. :D

Whatever you do, don't use ANZ. The ANZ password system is crap.

JamesL: Going to assume that the password restrictions are due to the archaic core banking systems most banks use


most likely their web server accesses their mainframe - so not really an excuse - unless the user record is aso held on the mainframe rather than a more modern box.

Yeah, I thought about it more, as no doubt it goes via a middleware layer, so can't think of why they have such stupid restrictions

While I agree the 8 char limit is bogus, you can actually enforce 2 factor authentication for everything, including login - which is what I have. It is delivered over txt though.

Oh well, we never need to reset our password. In fact, I personally think ANZ has a robust system in place. Two factor authentications is the way to go.

Well it is better than igloos. Theirs is a 4 digit number, so there is only 9999 possible combinations.
