McAfee unveils online banking safety guide


Acting on recent data that reveals many consumers still
aren’t protected by even basic antivirus software when banking online, McAfee
released an educational guide for banking safely on computers, tablets or
mobile devices.


According to Javelin Strategy & Research,in 2010 47 percent of household financial
managers did not have antivirus software installed.


Combining McAfee intelligence with the latest U.S.
banking data from many top sources revealed that most consumers fall into one
of three categories of online banking behavior, and that age tends to play a
strong role in safety and security habits online. Most people’s level of
confidence with banking online is associated with their overall comfort level
online, including participating in such activities as shopping, searching, and
social networking.


McAfee identified three main personality
types associated with online and mobile banking, and offers customized tips for
each group in its safe online banking guide.
