As you might have noticed, most banks who offer internet banking services to their customers are beginning to make use of a token as one of the security features customers would make use of when making transactions on their accounts online. The token is a sort of password or password generator that provides more security for your online transactions.

Already, current users of UBA Direct can do a lot of things with their e-banking service and this includes buying airtime, paying bills, doing money transfers, loading UBA africard and so on.

Recently, UBA has introduced a physical token for more security to internet users and it is available on request at UBA businesses offices.

According to UBA, the token is a physical handheld device that dynamically generates a password which you can then use when making internet based transactions with your account.

The physical token works by generating a password for you when you are online and want to make a transaction. You will then use that password generated to authorize the transaction. Ordinarily, users on UBA direct are used to just making use of a user id, password and a virtual token sent to their email when making ebanking transactions. With the physical token from UBA currently, all the user will need to do is press the button to see a token password that they can now use online on their e-banking accounts.

When you talking about internet security, anyone who knows how to hack can actually get into your online account by stealing your username and password. With the use of transaction tokens however, banks in Nigeria are working to eliminate the ease with which hackers can access you account.

To get your UBA token, just visit your bank and fill the token request form and one would be provided for you.

As with all normal precautions related to internet security, don't give people access to your email or your internet banking account and also try making use of a personal internet service for your safety. If you don't prefer using internet banking, you can always try mobile banking on your phone.

If you mean a physical hardware token, then you'd get it from your bank but if it's the virtual token, it is sent to your phone by sms when you are about to approve the transaction.
