Hints to safe Internet banking - what we would like to request of our customers -
Here we introduce to you some hints for how to make the most of the convenience of our Shinsei Power Direct with comfort and assurance of safety.

Hints to safe logins and logouts

Hint 1

Change your password periodically

A message recommending a change of your PowerDirect password will be displayed every 90 days at the time of login. We encourage you to change it periodically for improved safety.
Hint 2

Use the security keyboard

The security keyboard allows our customers to enter their password through the virtual keyboard on the login screen. This function enhances safety, since customers can avoid leaving a keyboard log.
This function is also efficient in guarding against spyware which attempts to steal the password. We highly recommend the use of the security keyboard.
For further safety
There are numerous types of spyware. We recommend a mixed use of the security keyboard and the regular keyboard, rather than using the security keyboard alone. For example, use the security keyboard for PIN entry, and the regular keyboard for the password entry.
Hint 3

Check the last login time

When you log in the Shinsei PowerDirect, please check the "last login time" on the screen. If you do not recognize the last login time, please contact our Shinsei Power Call (0120-456-022).
Hint 4

Logout whenever you leave your computer

Please make sure you logout whenever you leave your computer. When you logout, please check the sessions summary report. If you find anything suspicious about the report, please contact Shinsei Power Call (0120-456-022) immediately.

Ways to enhance safety by option setting

Hint 1

Set an address to receive e-mail alerts.

You can receive e-mail alerts of the following updates by designating an e-mail address in "Customer Support" and "Address for e-mail alerts." We encourage you to make use of this service for enhanced security.

* Customers using a Japanese mobile phone overseas with an international roaming service:
If you wish to receive e-mail alerts in the mobile phone, please check in advance that your model is capable of receiving e-mail messages from Japan.
