Security Issues

How secure is Byblos Bank’s Internet Banking?

Byblos Bank has designed and built its Internet Banking platform according to International Security Standards, including a very high level of encryption (128-bit). Nonetheless, you can and should take precautionary measures on your end too. Here are some useful recommendations:

  • Make your password hard to guess or figure out: 
    • Minimum eight characters 
    • Use an alphanumeric password (i.e. one with both letters and numbers) that also includes both upper- and lower-case letters, as well as special characters (%, &, ", \, !, /, ;, :, <, >, [, ], ^, {, }, |, ~, \\). Avoid using dictionary words or known facts such as your date of birth, first name, spouse’s name, favorite sports team, etc.
  • Do not make your password the same as, or similar to, your User ID
  • Never share your password with anyone else
  • If you are connecting from a public place, make sure no one is looking over your shoulder or peeking at your screen
  • If you need to leave your computer for any period of time, log out from the Internet Banking system and use a password-protected screen saver
  • If you are sharing your computer with others, always log on to Windows or macOS under your personal account and log out before leaving
