There's no absolute safety in this world. If there exists absolute safety, it means absolute inconvenience. I've used online bank for about two years and there's nothing wrong with it. It makes my life more convenient than before. I could save a lot of time queuing in the bank and spend such time on something which I'm interested in. So in my view, so long as you use online banks cautiously, there's nothing you need to worry about.

hi, mrnischalgurung. I would not say it is 100% safe. But i use all the time the internet banking. What i do is i do not have much money in that account, i save in other account which i do not use for internet banking. So if i am that unlucky, i will not loose much too;-) Well...i think before using the internet banking, you need to be sure that you have checked the security of your computer. And always delete the cookies. Or just like me, do not have much money in that account which you use for internet banking. Internet banking is really convenient for me, because i do not have my own transportation, so going out for the banking purposes is really troublesome for me sometimes. Once i have started using the internet banking, everything becomes easy for me. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Internet banking is risky. A lot of hackers are out there trying to figure out how to steal your money. I still prefer the traditional banking cause I feel my money is more secure in it. Although the internet banking is fast and readily accessible I still don't trust my money in it. shadow41

...for me it's safe, coz i had just my transaction this morning, it's convenient for me, but first you need to secure your vital financial infos. and your pc must have reliable security...happy mylotting!
