HSBCnet Mobile

Banking in the palm of your hand

We are pleased to introduce HSBCnet Mobile, a convenient new way to access a select set of HSBCnet services using your supported mobile device.

The streamlined interface has been specifically designed for use on certain mobile devices. Currently available as a complimentary value-added service, you can access HSBCnet Mobile using your device’s web browser – no applications or downloads are required.

Three features are available on HSBCnet Mobile in line with your entitlements:

  • Checking account balances and statements
  • Authorising payment instructions (Priority Payments, Inter-Account Transfers and ACH Credits/Debits only)
  • Receive notification of payments requiring authorisation via My Alerts

Please note: a Security Device is required to access HSBCnet Mobile. HSBCnet Mobile is not available to Smart Card users. HSBCnet is currently in the process of upgrading Security Devices for our customers. If you have already been contacted to upgrade your Security Device, we encourage you to do so immediately in order to use HSBCnet Mobile. For more information, please review the resources in the Information Centre, available after logging on to the main HSBCnet site.

Maintaining a secure HSBCnet Mobile experience

As with the main HSBCnet site, HSBCnet Mobile has incorporated several key security measures to help protect your information:

  • Security Device: Your Security Device is required to log on to your HSBCnet profile and for any subsequent transaction authorisations.
  • Encryption: HSBCnet Mobile is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption technology (SSL v3 – 128 bit).
  • Session time-out: Similar to using HSBCnet from a computer, if you forget to log out, or your mobile device remains inactive for a period of time, HSBCnet Mobile will log out automatically.

In addition to your obligation to comply with the general HSBCnet Security Procedures, you must ensure you also comply with the additional security requirements* which are in relation to HSBCnet Mobile on your mobile device, and include:

  • Do not store your HSBCnet user or profile details on your mobile device.
  • Ensure your mobile device is updated with the latest anti-virus and anti-spyware software.
  • Avoid sharing your mobile device with others.
  • Avoid using other mobile devices not on the approved list to access HSBCnet Mobile.
  • Do not leave your mobile phone unattended after logging on to HSBCnet Mobile.
  • For added peace of mind, click the ‘Logout’ button when you are finished with HSBCnet Mobile.
  • To prevent unauthorised access to your mobile device, enable its automatic passcode lock feature.
  • Use default browsers originally provided with your mobile device.
  • Avoid using an “unlocked” mobile device or a device with any unauthorised modifications when using HSBCnet Mobile.
  • Avoid installing applications on your mobile device from unknown sources.
  • When connecting to a wireless network using your mobile device, use only trusted networks or service providers and enable additional security protection, such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), if possible.
