F08: Safe bank online

QUESTION: Is it safe to bank online?

ANSWER: Banks have done everything they can to ensure that their websites are safe and secure. If they didn’t trust the safety of their site they wouldn’t have you bank online at all. Obviously if there is a breach of security that is due to the site not being designed securely enough, the results of that would be the bank’s responsibility. However, if you have any hesitation about banking online, don’t do it.
