Security

Security CBD Mobile Banking uses various security measures and data encryption to ensure your day to day banking is completely safe with a UserID/Password, and debit card PIN for high level transactions. Some of these security measures are:

  • Personalised activation/registration process with unique one time password code and debit card PIN
  • Secure login process using CBD Online Banking credentials
  • Multilevel checks using personal password/touch ID or debit card PIN
  • The ability to control your beneficiaries by adding or removing utility bills, internal and external payments details and authenticated with debit card PIN and the OTP (one time password) received on your mobile. These details are synchronised with CBD Online Banking.

Mobile security tips
  • Lock your phone when not in use. Password-protect your device so that nobody else can use it or view the information. Also be sure to store your device in a safe location.
  • Call us on 600 575 556, if you have lost your phone and we will disable your mobile banking user ID and password temporarily. In case you have changed your mobile phone number, please let us know and we will update your contact details.
  • Clear mobile frequently by deleting text messages from financial institutions, especially before sharing, discarding or selling your device.
  • Never disclose via text message any personal information (account numbers, passwords, or other personal information) that could be used for ID theft.

Secure Token

Secure Token protects your online and mobile banking transactions giving you peace of mind.

We know how important online banking security is for you. And to provide you with extra protection for your accounts and transactions, we've added the Secure Key, a feature within our mobile banking app, used to generate a unique and single use security code each time you log in to online banking.

You'll need to download the CBD Mobile Banking app and initially set up the Secure Key. The Secure Key works even when you're not connected to the internet and provides you with the passcode you need for online banking transactions that require a second factor of authentication.

Secure Token

How to use Secure Token
You'll use it together with your 4 digit token PIN that you need to create at the time of linking your token in mobile app or in online banking (under services settings). This way, authentication is based on something you know (4 digit token PIN) and on something you have (6 digit number generated by the digital Token App).

Secure Token

When to use Secure Token

You'll need to use it for all your online transactions that require additional layer of :

  • Setting up new beneficiaries
  • Transferring funds to other CBD accounts, other UAE banks and international transfer
  • Cheque book request
  • Resetting your mobile banking credentials

Our app

What can I do on the app?

It can tell you where your nearest ATM is and there’s even a handy budget and expenses tracker to help you manage your spending more efficiently.
