How secure is online banking?

Internet banking is a growing trend. Almost every bank offers internet banking. Statistics show that more than twenty-five percent of all internet users are engaged in some form of online banking on a daily basis. But, how secure is online banking? Online banking security is not only important to the clients of the bank but also to the bank itself. One of the main advantages of online banking is convenience; however, the convenience can only be enjoyed if there is optimum security.

Online banking security is more than just changing your password on a regular basis. There are a variety of other things that you need to take into consideration such as: your computer, the location from which you are logged in and your internet habits. Where the banks are concerned, online banking security would include things like SSL and personal security questions used to make sure that you are really logged on.
