TD EasyWeb Security

Has anyone downloaded TD's security for online banking ?

Easy installation. And it operates in the background, protecting your computer without slowing you down or impacting other applications

I already use Trusteer (as suggested by CIBC). However, "without slowing you down" was not always true in my case. I noticed that sometimes, my browser would freeze for a good 10 seconds when trying to access certain contents at designated secure websites (such as CIBC). I still don't know if it was Trusteer doing its job and actually stopping some sort of intrusion.

OP - You should do a Google on this, there are lots of negative opinions on it. I think I will stay away from it for the time being.

Even beyond this software, I have always been leery of TD's online security:

1. Login based on your debit card number, which anyone can read off your debit card. (Some other banks let you set a username.)
2. Password is maximum 8 characters in length.
3. No "personal verification question," i.e. "Enter the last name of the best man from your wedding, etc."

This is well behind other banks that operate in Canada. I find it strange that TD has one of the worst, most aggressive anti-customer fraud policies in their chip&pin cardholder agreements, yet they have extremely basic protection for their online banking.

I think most Canadian banks need to get with the program and have one-time verification code like the "Google 2 Step Authenticator" type of system that some foreign banks use.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

TD lets you choose a USERNAME now as well

ING lets you use client # or USERNAME, but does ask security questions/images, then the PIN #

Thanks, I did not notice that TD had introduced the username option.

Re: #3

If you log-in from an unusual IP address, ie diff country, you will be prompted for a security question.
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D
