Those of you who bank on line will know about the new tier of security being brought in by Nat West and others. Besides the normal juggling with pin and passwords we now have to wait a few seconds whilst the bank sends a six figure number via your mobile phone, which has to be typed in to your PC so as to gain access to your accounts. This has become necessary because the scammers and hackers are getting ever better with their low life activity....well, that's fine!...well, no it is not. |
We live in a village that has numerous mobile phone black spots, including the bit of ground our bungalow stands on. So, I have to leave my PC, take my mobile phone up the drive and onto the street where I can get a signal, open my text inbox to get the number and run back into the house before my banking session times out. In winter I may have to take a snow shovel with me and perhaps a club, just in case I might meet up with some dissident caveman! Well, that's new technology for you...
