According to a recent report from consumer organisation Which?, the websites and mobile apps of some of the UK’s most popular retail banks are riddled with security flaws that are putting consumers at risk of falling victim to digitally enabled fraud.
Out of the banks assessed by Which? and security testing specialists Red Maple, Virgin Money, Nationwide, TSB and The Co-Operative Bank scored lowest for website security, while the most secure services were offered by Starling, HSBC, NatWest and Lloyds. First Direct, Barclays and Santander all scored somewhere in the mid-range.
For mobile app security, for which Red Maple also tested US newcomer Chase, and Monzo, the worst scorers were Virgin Money, TSB and Lloyds, and the most secure HSBC, Barclays and Starling.
