Free Trusteer Rapport internet security for Santander customers

Logged onto my online banking yesterday and it popped up asking if I wanted to download and install this software.

Rapport strengthens your online security by ‘locking down’ the connection between your computer, keyboard and Santander internet banking. It helps stop your data going to counterfeit sites, so you can be safe in the knowledge that only you are transacting on your account.
Anti-virus software helps to stop threats, by scanning your PC and looking for suspicious files, whereas firewalls hide your computer from attackers, and helps stop criminals getting data in and out of your computer.

"Rapport doesn’t replace the benefits of anti-virus and firewall software or your unique image and phrase when accessing our internet banking – it works alongside them to provide increased protection when transacting online."

I think this is free software anyway so anyone can download.

Note: This is not a replacement for antivirus software, it runs alongside it.

it requires admin level install to work best which also gives it a lot of control over your system - their selling point to the banks that they deal with is the detailed metrics it supplies them. using ubuntu live from dvd is the safest way to bank online.

Terrible software. This will do nothing more than a decent Internet Security package as it only flags fake or genuine banking sites that are enrolled on teh scheme. it's also annoying to uninstall.

Easy and non-system-slowing software which can be used on non bank sites also.

In the event of an online fraud occurring, this could make all the difference in terms of proving to your bank that you have taken appropriate measures to prevent fraud and therefore ensure a prompt repayment for monies lost.

Hot from me.

they want to learn how to bank properly 1st !!!!

This software slows down your browsing and is almost impossible to remove once installed.
It is worse than some viruses.
