Passwords

Your password is your key to your digital banking experience, so it needs to be as secure as you can make it. That means:

NOT reusing passwords from other sites,
NOT using your birth date, telephone number, license plate, or address,
NOT using easy-to-guess words or combinations,
and NOT writing it down.

Using ABMs

On top of the strong security measures built into Scotiabank ABMs, there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself even further. Keep prying eyes (or cameras) from seeing your PIN by shielding the pinpad with your hand or your body. And in case you lose it, never keep a written copy of your PIN in your wallet.

Phishing

“Phishing” is a type of identity theft where criminals use email to try to bait you into visiting fake websites to disclose confidential financial and personal information. The first thing you need to know is that Scotiabank will NEVER send you unsolicited emails asking for your confidential information, and will NEVER ask you to validate or restore your account access through unsolicited email.
