SMS alerts will be sent to your registered mobile number once your online transactions have been completed.
You will not receive an iBanking OTP for online transactions if your mobile number is not updated correctly or the merchant website you are transacting on is not supported by the 3D Secure™ technology.
You will need your registered mobile number to add a payee, transfer funds overseas, pay bills, update personal details and update your mailing address.
