It looks like Nationwide are stepping up their Internet Banking security, as we’ve heard from numerous customers that they’ve been started to receive Card Readers in the post for signing onto their online banking service.
Whilst card readers have been available from Nationwide since 2008, they appear to be sending them to all of their online customers, regardless if you have requested one. As these provide a higher level of security for accessing your account, we think this recent move by Nationwide is a good thing for their customers, especially as it costs you nothing!
The Card Reader will make things easier for you to sign on as you won’t have to enter any of your memorable data. It is essentially a small battery powered device that works independently of your PC, and doesn’t hold any personal information.
