  • Think before you click

    Your vigilance is the best defence against malicious software and fraud attempts.

    Be aware – we will never:

    Phone or email you asking for your full password, PIN or reader codes, or ask you to transfer money to a ‘safe’ account.

    Emails and links

    Be cautious about opening any unsolicited emails and don’t click on any links or attachments.

    We will never email you a link or an attachment which takes you straight to a login page.

    Send any suspicious emails to emailscams@lloydsbank.co.uk.

    Protect your PC

    If your PC is not protected, fraudsters can access your online data.

    Make sure your computer is protected with security software which is regularly updated.

    Your card and reader

    Keep your card and reader in a safe place, and never write down or share your password or PIN.

    We will never ask you to use the RESPOND button on the reader at login.

    Protect your payments

    You should have at least two payment approvers in place where possible – four eyes are better than two.

    Check your beneficiary details before creating and approving each payment, and check when you’re notified of a change in supplier details.
