In this guide, we’ll walk you through changing your security phrase and question in five straightforward steps. We’ll also explain why this is important and the benefits it offers. Let’s get started!
What are a security phrase and question?
A security phrase is a short sentence you choose when enabling enhanced security on Maybank2u. It appears with an image you also select on the login page. Only enter your password if you see both your chosen image and phrase. This prevents falling victim to phishing sites trying to trick you into revealing your password.
A security question is a question you choose from a list when enabling enhanced security on Maybank2u. It’s used for additional verification during specific transactions or when logging in from a different device or location. You must answer the security question correctly before proceeding with the transaction or login.
Why change your security phrase and question?
Changing your security phrase and question is essential for these reasons:
- Prevent Guessing: It stops hackers from guessing your security phrase and question based on your personal info or online activity.
- Avoid Reuse: Don’t use the same security phrase and question for other accounts that might have been compromised.
