Protect your financial information with Enhanced Security

Make your online and mobile banking even safer with two-factor authentication (2FA) and biometrics.

Enhanced security is activated when you enable 2FA on ATB Online banking or set up biometric login for your ATB Mobile banking app.

Activating ATB’s Enhanced Security is an important step in protecting your financial information. It’s free and it fights fraud by making sure it’s really you accessing your account.

Why do I need Enhanced Security?

It’s protection beyond passwords

With Enhanced Security, even if someone figures out your password and username, 2FA requires another form of confirmation beyond security questions—like a passcode sent to your phone or a fingerprint.

It’s an extra layer of defense

Enrolling in Enhanced Security protects your accounts by adding a second layer of protection, making it more difficult for someone to perform transactions without your authorization.

It’s one small action that can save big trouble

Enhanced Security only adds a few extra seconds in the transaction process, while potentially saving you countless hours of effort and frustration that victims of fraud typically experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s ATB’s two factor authentication system that fights fraud, by creating an additional layer of security on your accounts.

Before you log in or complete certain online transactions, you will be asked to enter a one-time use passcode. This security passcode will be sent in one of two ways: via text message to your mobile phone or an automated voice message on your mobile or landline phone. It works as a second check to make sure it’s really you accessing your account.

Enhanced Security is free for all ATB Online users. We highly recommend it and encourage you to enrol in two-factor authentication for your online account, and enable biometrics on your mobile app.
