Dos and Don’ts of Mobile Banking

    Mobile banking makes banking very convenient. Here are some tips you must go through to ensure a safe mobile banking experience:



    • Use the latest version of anti-virus and anti-malware software on your device
    • Keep device applications, browser and operating system updated with the latest upgrade
    • Ensure the security and safety of the apps downloaded from Google Play/ App Store
    • Verify and agree to only those app permissions relevant for the app purpose
    • Access protection:
      • Ensure that access to the device is protected via password/ PIN/ any security feature provided in the device. Keep the maximum number of attempts to 3 or less
      • Choose a strong password to keep your account and data safe
      • Change your mPIN regularly
      • The password should be complex and difficult for others to guess. Use combinations of letters, numbers, and special characters [such as !, @, #,$, %, ^, &,* (, )]
      • Change your NetBanking password regularly
      • Update your NetBanking password immediately on your personal device if you’ve accessed AU 0101 NetBanking on a shared network/ device (cyber-café, or any device other than your own)
    • Report a lost or stolen phone immediately to your service provider and law enforcement authorities
    • Register on the app using the mobile number registered with the bank
    • Update E-mail ID to receive necessary communication from the bank
    • Notify the bank in case of change in mobile number and register on app using updated mobile number
    • Clear device’s browsing history, cache, temporary files and block any banking/ other important application before sharing/ sending your device for repair/ maintenance
    • Turn off wireless services like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, etc. when not in use. Use Bluetooth, if required, in invisible mode
    • Log out from the App/ NetBanking session as soon as the task is completed. Close the browser tab too in case of a NetBanking session
    • Be cautious while typing confidential information (username, passwords, mPIN, card details, etc.) in public places
    • Regularly check the banking activities/ status – account statements, recent transactions, requests status, payments, etc


    • Do not use unsecured or unverified Wi-Fi networks available at public places
    • Do not use ‘jailbroken’ or ‘rooted’ devices for any banking service or transaction
    • Do not download remote sharing apps (like AnyDesk)
    • Beware of money mules. Do not scan any unverified QR code or enter PINs/ OTPs or share bank account details asked on the pretext of sending some rewards, etc.
    • Do not enable Autofill/ save passwords of NetBanking on browser.
    • Don't transfer funds without due validation of the recipient, as funds once transferred cannot be reversed.
    • Avoid sharing confidential data:
      • Don't store sensitive information such as card details, Mobile Banking/ NetBanking credentials, PINs and user ID on your device and never share these with anyone.
      • Never reveal or write down PINs/ passwords or retain any email or paper communication from the bank regarding the PIN or password.
      • Never share your passwords with others, including family members or any AU Small Finance Bank’s employee.
    • Be cautious while accepting offers such as caller tunes or dialer tunes or open/download emails or attachments from known or unknown sources.
    • Be cautious while using Bluetooth in public places, as someone may access confidential data/ information.
    • Do not use passwords that are obvious, like your name/nickname, names of your family members, your address, phone number, or any other information that a thief might find in your purse or wallet.
    • In case of more than one NetBanking user ID, use different passwords for each of them.
    • Beware of phishing emails, SMS, or any other communications. Do not open any link or download any file from those media.
