Ensuring your online transactions are safe and secure
At the touch of a button, your Security Device generates a dynamic, time-sensitive Security Code. The Security Code constantly changes and is unique to your Security Device. This Security Code is required, in addition to your User ID and password, every time you logon to HSBC's Personal/Business Internet Banking service. As only you have the Security Device, only you know the Security Code, and only you can access your account. Your Security Device is a simple and convenient way to ensure greater protection for you and your financial information.
Your Security Device has been designed as a portable way to provide you greater security on HSBC's Personal/Business Internet Banking service. All customers will receive their initial Security Device free of charge. Any required replacement for the Security Device due to loss, damage (except if the Device is damaged on arrival) or battery replacement (if Device is issued for more than a year) will be subject to a charge of RM50.00.
For further assistance in maintaining the operability of your Security Device, please follow the guidelines below.
Keep your Security Device in a safe and secure place, where it is unlikely to be lost or taken by others.

Personalise your Security Device as you would a key, or other security object. Attaching stickers, key chains, and different coloured chords is fine, as long as the decoration does not give out information that would allow someone to specifically identify the Security Device with you (name, address, IC number, etc.)
Drop your Security Device from large heights, step on it, or otherwise physically stress the Security Device. Your Security Device has been designed to tolerate the normal day-to-day stress levels associated with daily handling. The device will be damaged if exposed to abnormal conditions.
