Most of us have received an email purporting to be from a financial institution, exhorting us to click on a link to log-in to our online banking account, reset our password, and so on. It is usually pretty clear that these are phony. However, bogus websites can be more difficult to spot, as they often look exactly like their legitimate counterparts. You can make sure of website authenticity by looking at the address and by checking the certificate. The real web address, in fact, is not necessarily the one shown in the hyperlink which could redirect you to a website that has nothing to do with the real eBanking site. For this reason, you should never follow any link to access our eBanking and you should manually enter the address https://ebanking.efginternational.com in your browser or save it in your bookmark. Once you have entered the right address, it is also critical to verify the certificate. A valid certificate will in fact show you the real entity associated with the website you are connected to, and it will ensure that only that entity will be able to decrypt the exchanged information. There may be some differences in how browsers show that a certificate is valid (a closed padlock, address highlighted in green, etc.). The pictures below show how EFG eBanking certificate information is displayed in some widely used browsers.
