    I bank with Santander .. on line most of the time, and I have been receiving security emails from them when I log on.. they off the Rapport /Truster security program free... see below for what it is... I did try and down load it some time ago on my Dell laptop, but it would not work (Windows 98) now I use a MacBookPro, I gave it another go and it does show up on the sites I use.. I have just activated it on the MHF site and it has accepted it.. It is for use wherever your information goes.. if you recall Google hits us with directed add (think that is what Jim said) .. I have disabled the adds on my connection as I find the flashing ones very disturbing when I am trying to post or read the threads.. but I have this Rapport/Truster running and it comes up whenever I connect to google or ebay or the online banking systems.

    Anyone else use it?

    details
    below what they say it does. ...




    What is Rapport?
    Rapport is a security software application that provides online transaction protection and protection from online identity theft for consumers. You can use Rapport to protect your web browser sessions with any website that contains private or personal information. Examples include:
    - Online bank accounts
    - Mutual fund accounts
    - Online brokerage accounts
    - Email (such as Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Gmail)
    - Social networking sites (such as Facebook, Myspace, Orkut, and Linkedin)
    - Insurance applications
    - Personal medical information
    - Online merchants (such as eBay, Amazon, Walmart.com, and Target.com)
    Rapport is entirely transparent and does not require you to change the way you work or sign into these websites. It does not require any configuration or maintenance; you simply install and browse safely. Rapport further protects specific identities and sessions.

    I use it on my XP machine and it seems to work very well. It shows a box when I log onto a new site and set a password asking if I want it protected apart from that I never see it.

    Yep, it was provided free by Natwest a few years ago and we sue it on all our machines. Useful bit of kit that sits nicely in the background

    Its a good piece of software, word is that its being attacked all the time, it prevents MITM attacks.

    Its estimated that its Shelf life will be less than 3 years, thats according to the Fraud IT experts I have spoken to..

    I have used Rapport for about two to three years now I think. Got it with my Natwest online banking. Seems to be ok, but I guess you won't know it's not till it's too late.

    Last week I noticed a payment on my Natwest Credt Card. £194 to E-Buyer. I have never used them. I called Natwest up and they also told me thatbI had two payments to Pix mania for about £280 each, neither of them mine. I'm out of the country, but fourtunately can still check my balance online.

    The cards were immediately stopped and new ones issued. NatWest said I would have to fill in the forms to claim back the fraudulent payments.. However all 3 payments have been refunded already, and I'm not even home yet for another 10 days.. I have no idea where access was gained to my cards but at least Natwest dealt with it very promptly. I'm just glad that I frequently check my balances onlinf,e otherwise who know how much would have been spent on my card.
