Banking and Payment protection

Banking & Payment Protection is an additional layer of protection designed to protect your financial data during online transactions.

In most cases, the Banking & Payment Protection Secure Browser is launched in the currently used browser after visiting a known banking website.

Choose one of the following Secure browser behavior configuration options:

Secure all browsers – If enabled, all supported web browsers start in a secure mode. This allows you to browse the internet, access internet banking, and make online purchases and transactions in one secure browser window without redirection.

Websites redirection (default) – Websites from a protected websites list and internal internet banking list redirect to the Secure Browser. You can select which browser (standard or secure) is opened.

Both previous options are disabled – To access a Secure Browser in ESET Internet Security, click Tools > ICON_BPP Banking & Payment protection or click the ICON_BPP Banking & Payment protection desktop icon. The browser, set as default in Windows, launches in a secure mode.

To configure the Secure Browser behavior, see Banking & Payment protection advanced setup. To enable the Secure all browsers feature in the ESET Internet Security, click Setup > Security tools and enable the Secure all browsers slider bar.

The use of HTTPS encrypted communication is necessary to perform protected browsing. The following browsers support Banking & Payment Protection:

Internet Explorer

Microsoft Edge

Google Chrome
