Banking & Payment Protection

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

ESET Smart Security Premium and ESET Internet Security contain a built-in list of predefined websites that will trigger a secure browser to open. You can add a website or edit the list of websites in the product configuration.

Turn on Secure all browsers to start all supported web browsers in a secure mode.

Open Banking & Payment Protection in your preferred web browser

When you open Banking & Payment Protection directly from the Tools tab in the product menu, it is opened in the web browser that you set as default in Windows. Otherwise, when you open your preferred web browser (not from the product menu), websites from the protected websites list will be redirected to the same type of web browser secured by ESET.
