    Is it safe?

    If the Banks were not convinced, that HTTPS left no room for doubt, there would be no Internet banking.

    The data is encrypted in both directions, the transaction handling includes full roll back ability if there is any doubt.

    You do have a high grade password, right?

    Reed is correct. Mobile banking is very safe. Just make sure you have a strong password.

    How safe is it to cross the street? If I look both way I'm probably ok.

    If you have a password that isnt your birthday, you'll probably be safe.

    I know I throw in some random meaningless characters, something you chouldn't guess even if we've been tight since cub scouts. Works like a charm

    That is why we have a Password Keeper App, under password lock.

    A strong password does not appear in any dictionary and is likely to contain non-letter ASCII characters. Most passwords are case sensitive too.

    Its funny, I work at a data center and sometimes we use a password cracker for our clients that complain about their emails being hacked and its amazing how many people still use plain old passwords. We usually can crack em in less than 10 minutes.

    I do a lot of online banking and feel comfortable with the level of security and encryption. And Password Keeper is a must for me

    Why a password like mypassword will be easier to crack than the password s0e1a2s3y4? They both have 10 characters. There are more combinations [ (26) power 6 ] to be tried in the first than the second [ (10) power 5 x (26) power 5 ]. Shouldn't the first one be more difficult even though it is plain English?

    iirc it's because the first one would be cracked in a first stage program, that only uses undercase letters, while the second one would require a second stage program, which does numbers and uppercase letters.
