Another great way to keep track of your accounts and manage your cards when you’re away from home is through NAB Internet Banking.2,4
If you’re not already set up, how is a good time to register. If you've already registered, here are a few things you might want to do in Internet Banking before taking off:
Safe internet banking
To keep your online accounts safe, try not use public computers to access NAB Internet Banking.2 If you do have to use a public computer for your banking, make sure you:
- Check the computer has current anti-virus and firewall protection, as Trojan viruses or spyware can steal passwords and account numbers
- Log out completely when you finish.
Set up direct debits for recurring bills
When you’re travelling, thinking about bills can be a bit of a downer. But if you have regular bills – including credit card repayments – that you usually pay manually, consider setting up direct debits.
This way, they’ll be automatically debited from your account – taking the stress out of remembering to pay them.
Simply log in to NAB Internet Banking2 to set this up.
Want to see and pay any bills that come in while you’re away? Register for BPAY View™3 and then use NAB Internet Banking to view your bill online. For more information on how it works check out our BPAY View™ page.
Daily transfer limits
Unless you’ve changed it, your internet banking is currently set up to limit the amounts you can transfer each day to:
- $5000 a day if you can receive an SMS and confirm the transaction.
- $2500 if you can’t receive an SMS to confirm the transaction.
If these limits don’t meet your needs, just login and change them.
With SMS Security4, you'll get extra security protection and additional features when you use the NAB app or NAB Internet Banking. These include:
- Updating your personal details
- Activating your NAB Visa Debit card
- Setting and resetting your NAB Visa Debit card’s PIN
- Resetting your password
- Authorising new billers and payees
- Confirming large transfers if you’ve increased your limit
- Confirming international payments.
If you’re travelling outside of Australia, you'll still receive SMS messages from us if your Australian mobile network provider allows it. You’ll just need to double check with them to see if you’ll be able to receive SMS messages overseas and what charges may apply.
If you plan to use an overseas mobile number while you’re out of Australia or need to deregister for SMS Security, please give us a call on 1300 651 656 or +61 3 8641 9886.
