How do I use ESET Banking and Payment protection?
A system restart is required after installing ESET Smart Security, ESET Internet Security, or ESET Smart Security Premium to allow full functionality of the Banking and Payment protection feature. Using the secured browser without restarting will still protect users from potential security risks, but it will not encrypt the data from keyloggers.
Banking & Payment protection ensures that all online transactions are protected in a trusted and secured environment.
ESET Smart Security, ESET Internet Security, or ESET Smart Security Premium contain a built-in list of pre-defined websites that will trigger the ESET protected browser. The secured browser encrypts the communication between your keyboard and browser to provide additional security against keyloggers for banking transactions, credit card numbers and other sensitive personal data.
