    all,

    i have been interested in mobile banking and was curious how safe it *really* is. who uses it, what programs, have you had any trouble, etc.

    share your thoughts here!


    thanks!

    i've been using Bank Of America Mobile for about 3 years now and have had no issues! i love it. i can pay bills, check balances, transfer funds and see my detailed transactions.

    I use Wells Fargo mobile and the site is constantly secured, so I assume its all safe.

    If you have Chase, you can set it up where you send a message to the five digit code and you can get your balances and last transactions.

    It's pretty convenient actually.

    actually, with winmo your making a direct https connection to the bank.

    with blackberry your making the connection through BIS-B or MDS-CS proxies.

    So is it really that secure? or more like pseudo secure like when you use opera mini or skyfire and they proxy in the middle.

    you are using a proxy with blackberry, so idk.

    Mobile banking uses an encrypted, VPN-like connection. It's very secure.

    okay, so what about these 3rd party aps that verizon offers? or is it better to stick with what the bank itself offers?

    thanks for everyone's input!!!

    the sites are just mobile sites that the bank itself offers.

    there are launchers available for most of them.
