Do any of you bank online?
Do you think this is a good thing? Useful perhaps?
Yep .. use online banking all the time, never had a single problem with it. It is convenient too, open 24/7 and 365 days a year.
IMHO - most banks are soâ€¦ clinical here to.
If one takes all the proper precautions with virus/spyware, shouldn't be any problems. Probably just as safe as carrying cash around, maybe more so.

On line banking is great, it gives you a sense of control. As a rural person, I have only been able to use this facility since receiving broadband. Dial up was too unreliable as it disconnected etc during the process of making a payment etc.

Yes, it is great. I don't have to rush out on a miserable day to pay the phone, power, rates and insurance as it is done automatically. I just have to make sure the cash is in there. And no charge either.

A very useful tool, wouldn't want to go back to joining the queue at the bank. I'm sure a lot more seniors would invest in a computer if they realised how much simpler it is to do your banking and bill payments from your home.

I have used on-line banking for abut 5 months now and am pleased I heeded my daughter's urging to do so. It makes paying bills so easy and I can keep track of my account. I agree with the others, you need to have a good security system and Broadband helps.My bank guarantees the security of the system. The only negative is that it reduces contact with the helpul and friendly staff at the bank.

It's great. You can even pay your bills when you are overseas.

I fully agree with everyone. Online banking is the best invention ever!
I wouldn't have it any other way. I can check my bank accounts every morning if I feel like it, in my pyjamas. A couple of my friends are wary of online banking because they worry about privacy and safety. But you can bet the banks have pretty stringent security policies in place.

Haven't been in a queue at the Bank in years, Internet banking is very safe just make sure you have anti virus security for your computer.
