Banking & 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 secured browser is launched in the currently used browser after visiting a known banking website.

Choose one of the following secured 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 secured browser window without redirection.

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

Both previous options are disabled – To access a secured 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 secured 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
