Secure Key

Your key to extra protection

Enjoy peace of mind with greater online banking security

Throughout history, people have always found ingenious ways to protect what's important to them. That's why we are constantly finding new ways to help keep your information safe. The new HSBC Secure Key is a portable device that will upgrade your online banking security to give you even more protection against fraud.

We are the first bank in Egypt to introduce such a device – it's easy to use and provides added protection by generating a new security code each time you use it, helping to ensure only you can access your online banking.

Secure Key features:

  • Two-factor authentication

    The Secure Key is a two-factor authentication device that will help protect you from online banking fraud. Devices like these are commonly being used for secure transactions around the world. With this technology, you will need not only your password or PIN to log on but also a unique code that is generated by your personal Secure Key device.

  • Peace of mind

    Secure Key gives you greater peace of mind because you have an extra layer of security.

  • Easy to use

    Just switch it on, enter your Secure Key PIN code and it will give you a unique, one-off 6-digit passcode that is only seen by you each time you log on. It's as simple as that.

  • Small and portable

    It's smaller than a credit card and should easily fit into your purse or wallet, so you can still bank online whenever and wherever it suits you.
