Security


We are committed to protecting you from fraud. While we may contact you to discuss the operation of your account and/or your satisfaction with your banking arrangements, we will never contact you and ask for your personal banking details - like accounts numbers, PIN and other login details.


Emails or phone calls that you receive requesting such information are an attempt to defraud you. Never disclose your personal banking login or other details in response to any unsolicited request. It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep your personal banking login details safe.


At Bank of Ireland Group we are committed to ensuring the privacy of your information and seeking to attain the highest standards of security at all times. However, you should note that messages and information passing over the internet may not be free from interference by third parties and should be independently verified.
